Uninsulated Jazz

Most jazz programs remain fairly rigidly within the world of jazz. There's nothing wrong with that; in fact it kinda makes sense, doesn't it? What's refreshing about 'Spins & Riffs,' though, is that hosts Lee Mergner and Renee Marie have a lot more on their minds than just jazz. Their musical tastes are far-ranging so, while they talk about jazz, they also talk about other genres of music and discuss how those genres can affect and compliment each other. They manage to put jazz into a broader musical context, which then places jazz in a broader social context. If a jazz lover really wants to 'spread the word' about the music he/she loves, that's the way to do it.
