Here's another one for Real Jazz. I've been listening to this show on and off over the years. I like the in-studio tutorials more than the live concert one's:

Wynton Marsalis
Jazz For Young People
9:00 am - 10:00 am Sat

Marsalis makes jazz easier for anyone to understand and appreciate. The show is patterned after Leonard Bernstein's tv show from the 60's, "Jazz For Young People."

Sounds like a fun show. Real Jazz is a go-to channel for me for a few hours every week while I work, or during my commute.

I usually don't stumble onto the shows though. I should look for some.

I got to listen again on Friday night. This is really good show. It's like having Luna even though I no longer have access to Luna since it was taken off the radios.
But I just switched to the monthly all access plan so I will be able to get Luna and some other lost channels again. Just as soon as I figure out how to access SXM on my laptop.

Planet Jazz was the bee's knees.

I wonder if I can do something in the Pandora part of the app to recreate it...
