Why were we "off the air" for eight hours Thursday?

We're back up and running and I wish I could tell you what happened, but I don't know. However, I do know we'll be getting a bill from my programmer for putting things right.

If anyone feels inclined to chip in and help with this extraordinary expense (about two weeks net revenue up in smoke), we'd appreciate it. Every little bit helps a lot.

Bebop trumpeter Donaldson Byrd was a member of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers during the early 1950s.

Byrd has served as a role model and mentor to other musicians, in particular Herbie Hancock.

He also bares the distinction of being a successful pioneer of funk and soul while still maintaining his career as a jazz artist.
