i caught the talking jazz program at 2 o'clock this afternoon. it was fabulous, interesting, and there was some great music played. however, i can't find anywhere on your website that tells me who the talkers were. it shows the program last week and the program next week - but not today's. please help (and also advise how i can find current program info). thank you.
