Thanks so much for your comment. The Jazz show is on Tuesday Night 2am EST till 6am EST. That is 4pm till 8pm here In Sydney. The schedule is at www.awesomeradio.net , left hand side menu. I do a sunday show (Mixed , always slip some jazz into the mix) Tues , Pure Jazz, Friday is a fun show I share with Sydney, mostly majors oldies and I fill in at times when needed which wouldnt be on the schedule.
If I can get some Interest from Artists to air their music I may expand the Jazz from 3hr show once a week to a couple days a week. We will see how it goes.
Anyway, my partner awesomeradio.net also has DJ's who play mostly major and mixed shows. If you like Blues, check out Sydney and try to catch Big Gary's show.
Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
