DETROIT JAZZ FESTIVAL is coming up this weekend: 
Today's Snark is an all-jazz tribute to the 32nd annual DJF.

I'm pleased to tell you I'll be guest deejaying on THE JAZZ HACIENDA this SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 3rd, from 6-8pm on the CJAM airwaves (99.1-fm in Windsor/Detroit), previewing many of the jazz artists who will perform at The Detroit Jazz Festival on the Sunday and Monday showcases. I've picked out some tremendous tracks. You'll want to go see these performers after you hear these songs. Tune in on Saturday!

Here's the CJAM link to hear this show.  The link is only active for about a month or so after the original broadcast date.
The link starts up the show automatically, but be warned there's 2 full minutes of the show that precedes The Snark tacked on to my podcast and it's serious subject matter over there.
