    plenty of jazz stations online
    but I was recently on vacation in Oregon and came upon
    http://www.kmhd.org/

    which seems to me to be outstanding
    (I'm sure the Portland hipsters among us have known this for some time)

    This is my quickest sweetest access to some great walking bass
    I was fortunate enough to listen to ' the gold standard'
    http://www.kmhd.org/programs/42
    last Saturday. I had only seen Sonny Stitt and Cliifiord Brown's lines in music books and had never heard them played. Some nice walking bass work.

    So for the advice to listen listen listen -- here's one sweet easy way. Feel free to add other stations.

    wgbh has cut back on its jazz programs. I still listen to kuvo.org on line since moving from Denver 11 years ago.

    Yes most areas in the US will have at least one jazz station. There are plenty online too, but we all should try to listen to jazz live. Live jazz is not expensive and most likely you will find at least one venue with live local jazz every night of the week. I used to listen Kjazz when i was living in SoCal, good station.

    If you have Sirius XM - the 'Real Jazz' station is great.

    I agree that live jazz is vitally important, both to support fellow musicians, and for our own growth as players.

    My personal favorite online source is http://www.pandora.com.

    Thanks to all for the cool suggestions. :cool:

    being on vacation, outside the radio range of Portland, it's not a good situation radio- wise. Last time we did the Oregon coast we had a rental car with Sirius radio. Sirius with 'Real Jazz' would have made the trip more enjoyable. Something to consider esp in more remote areas. Or with Aux Input you can hook up your own.
    And not every top 20 urban population center has a jazz station these days.

    Yeah http://www.kmhd.org/ here in Portland is excellent and they support local music as well. Do not miss the Grooveology program Friday nights at 6 to 7:30 PM Pacific time. Cool old school funk - Last week they did a tribute to Duck Dunn
