Zonjic Behind the Mic and Artist of the Month for June June
1, 2005 - For the first time ever Smooth Jazz Now has combined our "Artist
of the Month" and "Behind the Mic" features to highlight the career
of a proud Canadian who like his best buddy, Bob James, has been doing it long
before the format had a name. Alexander Zonjic is often mentioned in the same
breath as James, Earl Klugh or Jeff Lorber not just because they work together
and are close friends but without them this format may not exist.
Jazz Nominations from R&R Magazine May
25, 2005 - They say that radio can sometimes be a thankless job but maybe "they"

represented. Nominated for Program Director are KTWV's
Paul Goldstein in Los Angeles; Bernie Kimble at WNWV
in Cleveland, Blake Lawrence from WQCD
in New York, Baltimore's Lori Lewis at WSMJ,
Chicago's Steve Stiles at WNUA and our friend
Mike Vasquez from KIFM
in San Diego. More
Fall Smooth Jazz Ratings January
25, 2005 - Fall Ratings Book Highs: In the just released Fall Arbitron ratings
book, Los Angeles' "94.7 The Wave"
(KTWV) had a great season, jumping nearly a full share from the summer to a tie
for sixth place in the +12 ratings, its highest ratings tally in years. Washington
D.C.'s "Smooth Jazz 105.9"
(WJZW) also had a terrific book, rising to seventh, after low rating numbers in
the spring and summer. Detroit's "V 98.7"
(WVMV), always a high-performer in the ratings, did not disappoint, placing sixth.
Cleveland's "107.3 The Wave"
(WNWV) raised a full share to place seventh, bolstered by a new antenna, helping
its sometimes shaky signal in the Cleveland suburbs. St. Louis' WSSM
106.5 also raised nearly a full share, after some shaky recent books. -
Fall Ratings Book Lows: Sacramento's KSSJ
94.7 is down nearly two full ratings shares from last year at this time. San
Diego's KIFM 98.1, perhaps the most
successful Smooth Jazz station in the country, has had a rare two consecutive
down ratings books, falling to a mere fifth, still not too shabby. Dallas' 107.5
The Oasis (KOAI) slipped to fourteenth, while Tampa's WSJT
94.1 dipped a full share and two tenths to eleventh. by - Nick
