Happy Holidays!

I'll be away for the holidays, returning to KRML on Thursday, January 3, for "Just a Taste." Have a safe, joyous, and peace-filled holiday season, with some good jazz to keep things in proper balance. I hope you've enjoyed the programs of 2007, and I'm looking forward to what's in store for 2008: exciting new releases, old favorites, classics and classics-to-be, a few surprises...in other words, the sound of jazz!

If you have a moment, go to the e-mail link at the right side of this page and drop me a line. I'd like to know where you are. It would be great to hear from KRML listeners who are far removed from the Central Coast of California.
