Jazz 91 Winter Wonderland Fun(d) Drive By Claire Greene, Fund Drive Coordinator
Yes, 2011 is going to be a great year for Jazz 91 listeners. We’ve got excellent straight ahead freeform programming, gifted and talented on-air hosts sharing their love and knowledge of jazz, lots of fun guests popping in and out of the studio, and you – our fabulous listener/supporters. That’s right, your support makes all the wonderful things that happen at KCSM possible. We know you know that, so why not spread the word and share the wonders of Jazz 91 with your friends? You can make a real difference by asking them to call in and support the station during our next fund drive.

We’re going to fire up our Winter Wonderland Fun(d) Drive on January 25th. Right now we’re putting the finishing touches on some really good programming for the drive, and we’re working hard to find that extra special gift or two that’ll fly off the shelves and make us, and you, happy. Remember, we’ve only got this Winter Drive and the Spring Drive left in our fiscal year so we need to stay on track and reach our goal. Each drive has a target and as soon as we reach it, we stop. Right now the end date is February 11th, but you could help us end it earlier than that. We’re also working on some fun event ideas for 2011 that would let us all get together and spend some time sharing our love of jazz. We’ve got a great community of folks who listen to the station here in the Bay Area and around the world. Our fund drives are a time to hear from them and you. Your messages are often very heart- warming and they keep our spirits high during the drive. They’re our favorite part of a very difficult job. Alright, let’s make this Winter Wonderland Fun(d) Drive as joyful as a sleigh ride in newly fallen snow and as magical as a shimmery moonlit winter evening. We’ll do our part to keep the music coming. You do your part to keep the home fires burning. And make sure to check out our Website: www.kcsm.org to keep up to date with our Fun(d) Drive special programming and surprises! Happy 2011 from all of us at Jazz 91 – the best little jazz station in the nation!

JAZZ PROFILES WITH NANCY WILSON Monday at 9 pm 1/3
Reedman Buddy Collette
1/10 Vibraphonist Red Norvo Red Norvo (pictured) is the lesser known of the two early pioneers of the vibraphone in jazz (the other is Lionel Hampton). This show looks at the multi-faceted musical career of Norvo, from his earliest experiments with avantgarde jazz, to his big bands with wife/singer Mildred Bailey, to his critically acclaimed trio with bassist Charles Mingus and guitarist Tal Farlow.
1/17 Bandleader/Composer Sun Ra Whether he was disdained as a charlatan or revered as a pioneer, there is no denying the influence of Sun Ra (pictured) on several generations of musicians. He was an avatar of free improvisation and was the first to bring electronics and synthesizers into jazz. But, this space traveler was also a pianist for the Fletcher Henderson big band. This show showcases Sun Ra's musical cosmic swing.
