    Friends- As I retire from Jazz 88.3, I want to thank our thousands of Members and many more thousands of listeners, both locally and around the globe. Your support and your input have contributed immeasurably to making this radio station a landmark bastion of great music and a leader for meaningful music education. The last 13 years have flown by and clearly mark the highlight of a nearly 50-year radio career and I am truly indebted to you, our staff, volunteers and our underwriters. Here’s to many more years of great Jazz and Blues on Jazz 88.3.
