Listener Comments and Reviews

Fable reading lowers rating The jazz and smooth jazz music selections on North Coast Radio FM 105.9 in the Rochester, NY, are fine; but what I find highly offensive and generally irritating are interruptions by a very sick-sounding man reading or reciting platitudinous clichés and yarns ─ usually at the expense of women. I change stations every time I hear this nonsense. The station would do well to dump this simpering moralizer and his tall tales and fables and stick to spinning the genre: smooth jazz.

Who was the Korean vocalist you played today, Saturday March 22, around 6:10 p.m.? The name sounded You Soon Na. Guitar/Vocal. Some of the lyrics: "What have I become," "You could have it all," "I will make you hurt" -- a beautiful song sung beautifully but also a sad song. In Brighton, I listen to North Coast Radio WJZR, FM 105.9 Rochester, NY. Thanks for your reply.

On or about 8/6/19 at between the hours of around 12am and 1am I think, your DJ played two songs. One by Boz Scaggs followed by a great song by Bela Fleck. I didn't quite get the names of the songs or which albums they were from. I must own that music. Any help you can provide in this regard will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Do you have any idea how I can purchase a Jimmie Highsmith Jr. Indigo Chronicles CD? Amazon is only offering MP3 downloads.

To Kolye - The group is Yokov Karlzen 3 and is somewhere out of Europe. I really liked the music and it took me a long time to get the name right. I hope this helps you out.

Please provide me with the name of the artist(s) who's album is named Songs From The Swing Out. Thank you

Very cool stuff. Reminiscent of the "West Coast" California jazz sound of many moons ago, when musicians of that genre could actually read the charts and had the chops to make it happen. If someone doesn't have eyes to dig these vibes, let him go back to his Lawrence Welk and bubble machine.

Pretty! This was a really wonderful post. Many thanks for providing this info.
By: Crystal on April 8, 2020

How do you spell the name of the local quartet that sounds like The Manhattan Transfer? It sounds like you're saying "The Royal Boxers" but I cannot find their music on Amazon by that name. Thanks for your reply.
