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.

December 1, 1951 – September 21, 1987


Pennsylvania native Jaco Pastorius developed a reputation for his pioneering, unconventional base lines. He moved jazz forward by combining Latin influences (particularly Cachao López's), Afro-Cuban and R&B influences to create an entirely new sound. He would use percussional, or “ghost,” notes, by anchoring his on the bass pickup at the bridge.

Pastorius would collaborate with the likes of Joni Mitchell and worked with Weather Report.
