LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Audio Show, running at the Sheraton Gateway at LAX from June 2 through June 4, has just completed a strategic partnership agreement with KJAZZ, FM 88.1, the non-profit radio station of the California State University, Long Beach Research Foundation.KJAZZ, "America's Jazz & Blues" station, which has more than 490,000 weekly listeners, members has signed on as a sponsor of the LA Audio Show and will promote the Show with air-time in addition to its email blast to its over 20,000 members.
Denise Maynard, KJAZZ's Director of Special Projects, noted that an alliance between a radio station and the industry that builds and sells radios is a natural. "We are so glad to be able to participate in a meaningful way with this Show," she said. "We believe that it is important for our listeners to be able to hear the music we provide in the most accurate and convenient ways possible.
"We are delighted about our partnership with KJAZZ," said Marine Presson, Show Director. "Again, we are demonstrating our—and this industry's—commitment to music and the many ways it can be shared and reproduced. It is our theme, 'Hear to Make Music,' brought to life."While KJAZZ specializes in recorded jazz, the Show will feature it "Live," as well. The BBB, Featuring Bernie Dresel will be performing poolside on the afternoon of the Show's first day, June 2. The BBB has proved to be one of Southern California's hottest jazz ensembles. Jazz as an art and musical expression is an important component of this year's Show. Renowned artist Merryl Jaye's participation was noted earlier. Among Ms. Jaye's well known works is a series of portraits of jazz musicians that will be on display and available for sale at the Show.
