My dear Caravan listeners

Today I bid farewell to the morning Caravan schedule. I’ll miss you all.

While I’d much rather be over engaged with life than sitting on a couch somewhere, I have been stretched pretty thin these past few years. I need to reapportion my daytime hours in order to give more attention to my primary work commitment as Executive Director of Seattle’s non-profit Earshot Jazz organization. Later this month, I’ll reappear on the KBCS schedule in an evening version of the Caravan.
