- WHPK JAZZ RADIO

Dear Rebecca...
I've taken the time to send you this link to our site at WHPK-FM it is the best Jazz radio Programming in Chicago.
    
http://whpk.uchicago.edu/jazz/
Led by myself, L.A. Emenari, I've voted yearly in the Downbeat International Critics Poll since 1979; I've written for Downbeat, Cadence,

and many others; Had the only weekly jazz column for over 20 years in the Chicago Citizen newspapers and others. Written many liner notes

for people such as Wallace Roney, Terence Blanchard, Malachi Thompson, Ernest Dawkins, Stephen Scott, etc. served on boards of The JIC
and the AACM. Give us a listen at WHPK FM we have the most Female Jazz jocks on air in Chicago. Of that we can boast in Tonya Southard,

We also at one time had Marsha Noble and Gloria Riddick two fine DJ's.
