Classic Jazz Corner in the News...

A few weeks ago, Portland's daily newspaper, the Oregonian, published an article about Portland internet broadcasters. The Classic Jazz Corner was one of the featured broadcasts. The article even includes a really cheesy photo that the Oregonian photographer took of me at home.

You can check out the PDF version of the article here.
