The band leader can't mess up the tempo.

NOT MY TEMPO!

Funny you say that about a genre once notorious for heroin addicts and outspoken, over the top personalities. I guess that's what happens when it becomes an institution.

Jazz has been dead since A Love Supreme came out, there's still a corpse twitching around? Wow.

Canadian... jazz.

So, like light light light light light rock.
The margarine of music.
The 2% milk of amnesia.
The kind of sound that comes from a special button on the clock radios at mid-tier convention hotels.
Music to not operate heavy machinery by.
 
2018-06-23 04:42:21 PM  
People still listen to radios? And actually like the people who then interrupt the music? It must be dreadful boring in Canada.

"It's so disappointing, shocking that this is going on," says long-time listener Deborah Abbott. She's already cancelled her monthly donations of $120.

Wait, there's people out there that donate that kind of money to a radio station? wtf?  For $120 a month, I'll customize a jazz station for her that will knock her support hose off.

Was the sexual misconduct broadcast? I imagine it would be a good voice-over on Canadian jazz. Let's have some wild oral sax!

I imagine its some sort of lampoon of our CBC radio talk show types...but because of F'ed up licensing and mostly t he CRTC being all crotch-smiten with power I am not allowed to see it.

Carry on.

It's a good station with listeners all over the world. They play Jamie Cullum's BBC show and had some great hosts. I've bent listening to Danni Elwell since she was on CFNY in the 80s. This is disappointing.

I'm trying to imagine any musicians in any genre who display the raw talent of a really good jazz group. It's not my preferred genre, but I have to admit: I've never heard more complex music outside of an orchestra.

I must be one of those 12.  I was listening on Friday.  I haven't heard any of it.

A radio station used to be more than just a playlist with commercials. A good deejay could make you feel like you were old friends sharing a singular experience. They don't really make 'em like that these days.

...Gods, I sound old. Most of that stuff was already long gone by the time I was listening to the radio.

DJs are expensive.  So much cheaper to have just one DJ pretend to be local to 70 stations at a time.

/yay corporate profiteering!

Yeah, I get it, I'm old enough to remember radio stations that had dj's that were fun to listen to.  I got so engrossed in a morning show on my way to work one time that I missed my exit.  But I never had the urge to send them $120 a month.
