Broadcast content and problems

Thanks for FINALLY playing some JAZZ from the Jazz Fest! I was able only to tune in sporadically on Friday and Saturday, but when I was able to tune in all I heard was pre-rock&roll (you all usually call it blues or rhythm and blues), some Cajun music (not really a New Orleans tradition), Latin music (sometimes that is really good when it sounds like what used to be called Afro-Caribbean jazz.
Just in case no one else has let you know about it, there has a been an awful, irritating echo multiple times during broadcasts (today, around 1430 hours, it was echoing three or four times) that seems to have started when you installed the new 100K watt antenna.
Jelly Roll Justice's shows seem to have been severely afflicted, also.

Weekend report

Thanks, Russell. Splendid photos!
