Bizarre - you play music by some artists and give us no information about them. Your the ones choosing to play them! Or does this station have literally no one working there- all done by computer/robot?

Hi Jon, thanks for letting us know. We've updated the page with the relevant bio.

Unfortunately the artist pages on the ABC Jazz website are sourced automatically from Wikipedia, as is explained above and on our FAQ page here: http://abcjazz.net.au/frequently-asked-questions

This means that occasionally a page will not have accurate or up-to-date information. We're currently in the process of building a new site which will be more aligned with the ABC Radio Player. At the moment, local radio stations are migrating to this new platform - and we hope to follow their lead in the near future.

Thanks for your patience.
