Their Army Knives Aren't Bad Either

I'm indebted to 'Our Man In Ashington' John Taylor for introducing me to Swiss Jazz Radio. This amazing radio station plays non-stop jazz 24 hours a day covering everything from Louis Armstrong to John Scofield. Each track comes with info as to personel, recording date, composer, availability of CD and the colour of the recording engineer's underwear. Tracks are programmed well in advance so you know to the minute what's coming which is useful should you decide to download something. Not that I'm suggesting you do anything that may infringe copyright ...
You can also get it on DAB radio if you live in Switzerland. If you don't live in Switzerland then click on the link in the right hand column.

PS: I was only joking about the recording engineers underwear.
