I'll use this forum to give thanks
for the unsung heroes of our musical world: the small independent labels that risk time, effort, and cash to preserve this glorious music.....

Thanks God for Frog, Retrieval, RTR, JSP, Jazz Oracle, my friends at Archeophone, Memphis Archives, Hep, Timeless, Take Two, Proper, The Old Masters and others that help preserve music that otherwise would just disappear.

I guess I should also tip a cap to the "major labels" for their re-issue programs, despite an inbred habit of being slow to respond to the smaller demand for vintage music and to usually do so in incomplete or disjointed least some of the gems in their vaults have been distributed....

And thanks for using these incredibly valuable resources to create great programs which should be heard in other radio markets and thankfully, on The Web.
