MM: Why No Jazz Station in Hamptonville?

Moscow Minidoka: I don't know how many of you regularly listen to Spokane's NPR station (KPBX) on Friday nights, but there is just something really special about having classic jazz set the mood on Friday night. Bruce Davis' show (focused on the swing era) is a highlight of my week, but the jazz they play afterwards is great, too. My biggest complaint is they fill the airwaves with classical music all week long, and just give us two nights of jazz. My time in Boise and Seattle spoiled me, 'cause there you could get jazz on the radio every night … just wonderful. It frustrates me that the town that hosts the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival has no jazz station …

Question: What's your favorite public radio program?
