Thanks for staying in touch, and in particular I’d like to doff my porkpie to those of you who also understand that Out Front, Outback depends on KUSP to get this music out to you. Support from listeners is critical to the ongoing survival of public stations. For local listeners, a reminder that we are fast approaching KUSP’s broadcasts of the Monterey Jazz Festival. This will be our 32nd year of live, local, non-commercial coverage of the longest running international jazz festival in the world. This is an opportunity which many public radio stations would give their left channel for. KUSP is lucky to have the Monterey Jazz Festival in it’s broadcast area, but also works very hard to bring you quality coverage of the festival, some very real value added to an already strong presentation of locally produced jazz programs throughout the year. A reminder, however, that this effort doesn’t come cheap, and this year KUSP is behind on it’s funding for MJF presentations. We’d love to hear from you if you depend on us to bring you world class performances as they happen at the festival. This year your direct participation in support of our broadcasts is of particular import. If can help, please send a check to KUSP, 203 8th Avenue, Santa Cruz, CA 95060 to the attention of Jen Switzer, or contact her directly via email [email@example.com] or phone 831-429-6795…. make sure to make note of the fact that it’s in support of KUSP’s Monterey Jazz Festival broadcasts.
