Each year when I sit down to write these cover notes there is always a great technological leap forward. For instance, this year you have been able to listen to "Jazz On A Saturday" when and where you want to. 3CR now has a radio on demand facility. So, if you wish, you can tune in via a computer, when you want to. I listen most Mondays, as Saturday seems to have got so hectic over recent years. It only seems a few weeks since our last favourites CD, but in fact it is a year.

In the last few years it has become harder to find CD's, but easier to find the music. Many years ago, I told a colleague that you would eventually go into a "record shop" and the shop assistant would dial in to a machine and make you a CD. Well, this has sort of happened, but you do it in the comfort of your own home via a computer. It has changed the whole music industry. What next? At least every Saturday, we go into 3CR with a whole bunch of CD's and present the show live. So, thank you for listening to "Jazz On A Saturday" and supporting jazz.
