      I would prefer to hear that the intention is to EXPAND the jazz programming... it was a mistake when you downsized jazz and other music programming years ago. Too much left brain focus.

      Vital jazz programming is important to the DC area and is not available elsewhere.

      I love the jazz programming and don't need another station with talk and news. I use WAMU for that already!

      As a former WPFW staff and programmer, as well as one that has seen this same approach rip at the fabric of other Pacifica stations, I feel the need to stand up to the still viable notion of localism as opposed to the cultural nullification of corporate efficiency. Public broadcasting is just that. PUBLIC! Anything less violates the original intent of the 1967 Public Broadcasting Act. Reread its tenets and see how far we have drifted.
