Favorites of 2012 for One World
Blog Name: One WorldAuthor: Marcus Rosario Posted on: December 30, 2012

There's been A TON of amazing music that's come out this past year from all over the world and I've been fortunate enough to share as much I could of it on One World. As 2012 comes to a close, I wanted to round out some of my favorite releases that I played a lot of as a result. This is in no particular order!

Nobody Can Live Forever: The Existential Soul of Tim Maia (Luaka Bop)

Hands down, one of the best compilations to come out from Luaka Bop. The Brazilian soul funk godfather Tim Maia finally gets recognized after being an underrated musical gem in the DJ world.

Besos De Coco Live In-Studio On The New Jazz Thing Monday December 17 2012
Blog Name: The New Jazz Thing with Vince OutlawAuthor: Vince Outlaw Posted on: December 16, 2012
The unique guitar, bass, and tap percussion trio that is San Diego's own Besos de Coco (Lorraine Castellanos, Evona Wascinski, and Claudia Gomez, respectively) will be chatting and (space and technology willing) performing LIVE in Hour 2 of The New Jazz Thing on Monday, December 17 2012, 6-8 PM PT. They are performing a special Holiday show on Saturday, December 22, 2012 at Dizzy's @ San Diego Jet Ski Rentals, so we will be chatting about that, how they got together, and their plans for the future. And we will hopefully be hearing them perform from the cozy confines of Jazz 88's On-Air Booth and Master Control, marshaled for the event! Some links about the band, previous performances, and the Dizzy's gig after the split, but here is the band performing "Tango en Skai"...

The Vote is IN!
Blog Name: Riffs on RadioAuthor: Ann Bauer , Underwriting Account ManagerPosted on: December 11, 2012
Jazz is Presidential!  Research about the neuro functionality of the brain as it absorbs, understands and relates to music is exploding.  Technology is now able to identify the exact areas of the brain where these processes take place, and we understand that music ignites at least seven different areas of the brain.  A preeminent scientist in this field is Daniel Levitin, the author of This is Your Brain on Music.   He is a former musician/producer/turned neuroscientist, so he's got a 360-degree point of view about music in general.  And his passion is clear in all his work.

To the Heart of It - Remembering Dave Brubeck
Blog Name: The Jazz Ride HomeAuthor: Claudia Russell , Program DirectorPosted on: December 5, 2012

It seems fitting to me Dave Brubeck died on the way to his cardiologist, on his way to have that great heart of his checked out. It was that great heart that hit its final downbeat today, the day before Dave's 92nd birthday. As the news continues to sink in and I continue think about the incredible person that was Dave Brubeck, I keep going back to that heart. His powerful heart that beat for nearly 92 solid years after his parents welcomed him in Concord, California.

Joe Marillo Interview on Offramp with T. Michael Crowell
Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: November 19, 2012

Joe Marillo has been a force in the San Diego jazz scene since the mid-1970s when he began bringing top-name jazz musicians to Mission Beach's Catamaran Hotel. He's a fine tenor sax player in his own right and, as a teacher, Joe has helped many an aspiring jazz player learn the rudiments of the music. Now 80, Joe's brings a lot of things to the table, but his most important asset is the size of his heart. It's huge. Joe Marillo recently sat down with Offramp's host T. Michael Crowell to talk about his life in music.

Ron Dhanifu: A Lifetime of Radio Activity
Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: November 15, 2012
Here's a recent article written by Robert Bush about Jazz 88.3 host Ron Dhanifu's life in radio that was originally published in the San Diego Troubador.  


It’s always been about the radio for me.
—Ron Dhanifu

“I feel like I was born to do this,” says Ron Dhanifu. Dhanifu mans the afternoon slot, from 1-4pm, on KSDS, the local jazz station. When he says he was born to be a disk jockey, he speaks from experience. He’s spent 40 years in radio, 30 of them (in two installments) at KSDS.

Red Bull - Marketing Genius??
Blog Name: Riffs on RadioAuthor: Ann Bauer , Underwriting Account ManagerPosted on: November 8, 2012

So, am I the only one who didn't pay much attention to the stunt when the guy broke the sound barrier?  I guess 8 million people watched it live, but when I saw the story on the web, I thought, "Ho hum."  It's not that it wasn't a feat, and must have been incredibly frightening and cool at the same time, but I was hardly overwhelmed with excitement.  And, here's the kicker, I didn't even read the writing all over the guy's suit.  There.  I said it.  I didn't even notice it.  Sponosors' logos on sportswear have become ubiquitous.  Like graffiti, they make people's eyes glaze over.  

And yet, marketing people are all abuzz about the marketing genius of Red Bull Stratos further blurring the lines of differentiation between advertising, cause marketing and blatant self-promotion. 

Was this a brilliant was to sell more product?  Probably.  As a non-user of energy drinks in general, my loss is no big deal to them.  Besides, I'm hardly in the demo.  

But from another point of view, I can't think of much that would make me less likely to ever consider the purchase of a Red Bull can.  I find this stunt environmentally offensive.  The author of the post says, "The beauty of Red Bull Stratos is that it's not just a sensational stunt, but a business move that could translate into estimated sales of tens of millions of dollars, according to Ben Sturner, founder and CEO of Leverage Agency, a New York City-based sports, entertainment and media marketing company."  Ick.

The author goes on to brag about the excellence of the Red Bull Air Race.  Again, Ick.  Why?  

The Air Race is loud, intrusive and annoying.  And it wastes a ton of fossil fuel!  Sorry, I just can't get behind the "genius" of a company that pollutes the air all in the pursuit of tens of millions of dollars.  Yes, I think free enterprise is a good thing.  And no, I don't think that profit is inherently bad. I just think that being environmentally respectful is everyone's responsibility.  I also resent the subliminally intended advertising.  That's no good for anybody.

Basic improvements needed to start. I think we just need to apply some basic radio audio type of discipline to the 'official' Jazz 88 Webcam Live Audio and we'll get rid of feedback and such, at least. Then maybe focus on the interaction parts of how much can one DJ do at once, to keep a music and public information stream flowing. It's got to be more community interaction around the show playlist...this is an interesting experiment for me...fun! Thanks Craig.

Incorrect Album Covers Provided by Amazon.com
Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 Website DevelopmentAuthor: Lev Shamilov Posted on: September 5, 2012

Here at Jazz88.3 we have implemented a very nice technology created and provided by Amazon.com - the ability to search and extract the album cover images of every album played on our radio station, so that we could display them on our website. It works great, when it works. Unfortunately, sometimes people make mistakes. Of course, I'm not talking about us! I'm talking about those people who actually submit those images to Amazon.

The submission process to Amazon is typically done by the recording company, who produces the albums, but lately it has become possible for the musicians to produce their own albums by themselves. Now-days every musician can record his or her music in a rented studio and then print a small batch of CD's keeping all the profit to him/herself, without sharing it with those greedy label companies.

Why Supporting the Arts is Important
Blog Name: Riffs on RadioAuthor: Ann Bauer , Underwriting Account ManagerPosted on: September 5, 2012

One of the pillars of our mission, at San Diego's Jazz 88.3, the support of the Arts.  Not just Jazz and Blues.  In fact, not even "just" music.  We see our role as an important vehicle for information about all the arts; as enjoyed through theatre, museums, performance and exhibition.  There is a perception  that the arts are, well, stuffy.  Or high-browed.  Or unimportant in today's world. 

Well, as it turns out, everyone knew that the arts are fun.  The art critic from the Guardian in the UK is merely verbalizing something that we've all known,  at least subconsciously, all our lives.  We listen to music because it's fun.  It makes us feel good.  Sometimes it makes us want to dance.  Or cry.  Or sing along.  Music is part of our soul. Music makes our bodies fluid, our hearts light.

We Love Our Radio in San Diego
Blog Name: Riffs on RadioAuthor: Ann Bauer , Underwriting Account ManagerPosted on: August 29, 2012

I don't mean to give away professional secrets, but San Diego radio stations get together periodically to ascertain the "State of the Radio Business" in the market.  It's not like we're conspiring, or anything, but we just talk about Best Practices and stuff.  The organization has undertaken a formal study of the perception of the radio business, through the point of view of some large, local advertisers.

[SIDENOTE:  Of course, Jazz 88.3 does not carry advertising, but we do seek and enjoy the financial support of local businesses who appreciate the value of the service we provide. From that standpoint, the thoughts of the "advertising community" are important to us, too.  We are, after all, players.]

Anyway, without sounding like we're patting ourselves on the back, at least according to these advertisers, Radio, as a medium, is doing just fine, thankyouverymuch!  With the advent of mp3 players, streaming music services, and "Internet radio," the profession has struggled with the fear that radio, as we have all grown up, knowing it, is going the way of the newspaper.  Well, if these advertisers are any indication of the public' perception  at large, that's just not the case.  One advertiser said, "The listener relationship with radio is the strongest of any medium."  Another one said, “The connection with the listener differentiates it.” Finally, probably my favorite quote is, “Listeners are passionate about radio.”

What's in a Brand?
Blog Name: Riffs on RadioAuthor: Ann Bauer , Underwriting Account ManagerPosted on: August 22, 2012

Everywhere you hear, people are talking about "branding."  Advertising agencies have become "branding specialists."  Low-end celebs work very hard to create their own "brand," which is just another word for reputation.  Even nonprofits, like public radio stations, are paying attention to the presentation of their "brand."  Brands

John Burke, in his Nonprofit Branding blog, says, "Implementing a mission that benefits society is probably not enough. Your nonprofit must commit all employees, all volunteers, all directors and all actions to the branding process. Your brand is shaped incrementally and always – shaped by every interaction, shaped by the way your phone is answered, the way your office is maintained, and by the grammar in your emails."  

 So what about a logo?  Why all the fuss about logos? Why is a recognizable logo important to a retail product?  A well known logo is intended to re-create the feeling of the brand in the mind of the consumer.  When you see that pink and orange logo, you're supposed to smell coffee and taste sugary-sweet fried dough.  Wearing the Nike swoosh means you are a real athlete.  The design of the logo is neither here nor there, as long as the effect on the audience's brain is there.

Hope for the Art Form
Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: Jeff Dalrymple Posted on: August 13, 2012

An interesting partnership this summer between a music venue and a private school has resulted in a summer jazz program for tween and teen jazz musicians.

Howard Berkson, owner of the food and music club Anthology here in San Diego, got the idea last year for a jazz institute and, with the help of San Diego trumpeter and educator Derek Cannon, put together a great music faculty, outlined a curriculum and set up a whole jazz program. Local top-shelf musicians were enlisted as the teaching staff, most or all of whom are music educators as well. I’m talking about — in addition to Cannon — Mike Holguin, Justin and Melonie Grinnell, Danny Green, Steve and Ella Steinberg, Andy Geib and Tommy Collins. In addition to these instrumentalists, Melonie Grinnell and Leonard Patton took charge of the two jazz singing groups.

Gazarek balances fancy free notions, effervescence, carefree whims, fragile emotions, precocious pondering and humor in her work, making this a highly attractive outing as a whole." Not bad ;)
