Jazz 2003 T-Shirt


2003 is the "Year of the Blues"! So declared Congress, and who are we to argue? Therefore, this year's Jazz & Blues Celebration will present many Blues shows, featuring a daily airing of a stellar Public Radio International series hosted by Keb' Mo called "The Blues". Live music guests? You've got it -- every night of the fund drive great area musicians broadcasting live from our studios! This guide will help you find these and the many other great shows prepared by our exclusive staff of Jazz and Blues chefs, just the way you like it -- from Down Home Cookin' to Uptown Gourmet.

Thanks to Lynn Merhib, Mike Powers, Joanne Lattiak and the staff of Probe Inc. for their professional assistance with publicity and in creating this guide, t-shirt and poster design. Thanks to Rebecca Foster, Eric Angevine, our "live" sound engineers, and all the dedicated volunteers who make this event so special. And thank you, our listeners, whose financial support allows us to bring this great music to you 52 weeks of the year.

So check out the detailed show descriptions at, then gather your friends and relatives around the radio for a week-long Jazz & Blues musical retreat. And please, keep the credit card handy to call 434-924-3959 with your pledge to support WTJU Radio, 91.1 FM.
