A little over 6 months down the line, it's time to look back on our newest project, which has put DJs on air through the medium of Internet radio and attempted to keep smooth jazz alive in the process. The listenership has tripled during that time and continues to grow, so I'm hoping for big things in the coming year.
I'd like to say a big thanks to Ari and Duy at Sky for giving Smooth Jazz 24/7 the chance in the first place. Also a big thanks to my wife Steph, who contributes a heck of a lot of her time each day to spread the load, and without whom the whole thing would have sunk without trace in month one.
Also a huge thanks to a whole host of people who present shows and/or have recorded sound bites to make Smooth Jazz 24/7 what it is. Namely, Carmen Kennedy, Lynda Clayton, Dianna Rose, Bruce Nazarian, Lynn Briggs, Oli Silk, Marc Antoine, Nick Colionne, Euge Groove, Dave Koz, Paul Brown, Peter White, Stewart Coxhead, Miles Gilderdale, Boney James, Brian Simpson, Brian Culbertson, Jeff Golub, Jessy J, Jeff Lorber, Jonathan Fritzen, Michael Lington, Mindi Abair, Paul Hardcastle, Richard Elliot, Steve Oliver & Victor Fields.
The biggest thanks of all goes to our fantastic listeners who tune in daily. Without you it wouldn't be happening at all.
