So here we are in The Speakeasy meeting, learning how to use the blog. Key thing learned today: "Don't click on the 'Save' icon." It does not Save. It breaks hearts.
|Chat...you have to give name and sex for verification (remedy coming soon)...
Link here to chat log for the evening...won't be much, but that's what should go here after the show is done and the live chat room is taken down...The band during the first hour, from the perch...
Patience is not one of my virtues. An ability to accessorize? Sure. But to say I've been "patiently" waiting for the day when we could finally get the Jazz88.3 blog up and running wouldn't be a correct characterization. Foaming at the mouth? Maybe. Pestering webguy Michael incessantly? Yes.
When you work at a non-profit, patience is a must. Things just don't happen as quickly as you want them to, whether it's from lack of funds, lack of staffing, or any number of bureaucratic loopholes. We've been working to improve our website for quite some time now, and an ongoing blog has been one of the key components. As an avid blogger in my personal life, I couldn't wait to connect with Jazz88.3 fans in a way that allows them to see the a bit behind-the-scenes. I'm thrilled the blog is finally here, with many more exciting web developments to come!
2010 has already started off with a bang at Jazz88.3. Next week Henry "The Skipper" Franklin comes to Jazz Live, and we couldn't be more delighted. He was here a few years back, played to a sold out crowd, and went down as one of the best shows we've ever had.
In the Development Office, we're pursuing grants to help bolster our education initiatives in the community, we're working on informing our listeners about the Hope Shaw Legacy Society (a way to make a planned estate gift to KSDS), and we're getting ready for a very fun event at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts for our Leadership Circle--starring Ed Asner!
The Membership Department is eagerly planning the Spring Membership Campaign, and continues to strive to make it a time of year that doesn't elicit groans but rather begs the question "what interesting twists will they come up with next?"
But now, I've gotta skedoodle and get to writing this week's edition of The Speakeasy! See you next time!
|Claudia Russell, Jazz 88 Program Director and friend extraordinaire, relates this news of the passing of Maurice Turner...|
Many of you knew Maurice, a long-time contributor to Jazz 88. Not only
was he a member, but also programmed several world shows with Damaja Le
in the '90s and early '00s. He was a huge fan of jazz and music from
around the world and always encouraged our announcers. Maurice also
contributed to the Jazz Artists Guild newsletter.
