88.9 KXJZ needs to drop the JZ

Man, I hope the people in LA and Fresno understand how lucky they are to have a jazz station that still plays jazz. The station in the Sacramento area never seems to play jazz anymore, during the drive time it's always news. And when they do have music, it's rare to here a straight set of swinging, blues oriented jazz. You may get one straight ahead tune, then a bunch of watered down brazilian music, then some musak, then some Botti, then five minutes of "pledge your support" and then three minutes of previews of the upcoming shows on NPR. It blows! KXJZ used to be decent, but it's been a long time since I've enjoyed it. I do sometimes enjoy NPR, but come on!

This is the jazz programming per the website:

7:00p - 1:00a
2:00p - 5:00p
7:00p - 2:00a

Wow, an extra hour on Friday night! Now, the music has been a little better lately then it was say last year, but perhaps us working folks would like to listen to jazz radio during the daytime hours.
