Note that KCME is now having a problem for the first time with their fund raising. They really messed up. First, I feel they have completely compromised their mission and reason for existence, i.e., to bring quality broadcasting to the public that is not otherwise commercially viable or available. I don't know if there are other radio sources of Jazz programming in Colorado Springs, but their sure aren't back here in the mountains where KCME operates a number of translators. And, second, they didn't just cut any old jazz program, they cut what was rated one of the premier jazz programs in the entire United States. Unforgivable. Dominowski uses the excuse we can get our Jazz from Sirius Radio now. Well, I've got news for them, I can get a lot more and better classical programming from Sirius as well. So, if I'm going to pay for Sirius, why would I want to contribute to KCME? It's just so sad. Lenny gave us a nice break from listening to classical all the time. If KCME now fails, I hope Jeanna Wearing is proud of herself. Every time I hear their new "motto", "All Classical KCME" I am so irritated I get mad all over again.
