So, this is our “last dance” at least for now, and we hope to have new G&M shows in 2021. As many of you know, even though G&M is only a 2-hour show, it’s almost a full-time job, what with listening to new/old music, selecting tunes, doing the program-specific research and lots of reading, in addition to actually producing the show. I’m at a time of life where other business demands my attention. Rather than do a half-assed job each week, we’ll take a break.

This week, I fully indulge myself and share tracks that consistently brighten my day and/or put a glide in my stride.

Thanks to all of you who have been along for the ride. The G&M archive on Mixcloud remains in place for your listening pleasure. Enjoy the show. À bientôt!

If I had only realised before that this would be the last Dr. Jazz (Marc Cohn) broadcast! Sadly I recently discovered that Marc passed away this June (2021) of cancer. A sad lost to the world jazz community. RIP Marc, I hope the angels are playing some be-bop for you!

Firstly, I would like to say thank you. Listening to your shows and voice has been inspiring, transporting, soothing and educational. I have loved every show I have heard and your passion, knowledge, collection, time and effort has been at the forefront of every single show. I can only aspire to such passion for this wonderful thing called Jazz. For now I wish you and your family all the best in these crazy times. Stay safe and well and for now I will go back into the depths of your massive archive on here, until you return. Thank you Dr for the Jazz medicine, it has been much needed and life sustaining.

Hey Marc, we'll miss you, but the lad and I have a great library of your shows for our education and enjoyment. Take care, all the best to you and yours and we look forward to hearing you in the new year.
Cheers, Simon & Ernest

Thanks, guys. Appreciate your kind words. This is an interesting Saturday, as I'm working at home with no radio show to go to. It's kind of a relief, given all that's on my plate. But I'm missing the rush:) Thanks for listening and we hope to be back in 2021. My very best regards, DrJ

"...and that, in the end, the most interesting people always leave.” I will truly miss you, Marc.
However, I take comfort from the fact that I can revisit 448 wonderful shows. I agree with The Soul Preacher, you are one of the best Jazz presenters M-XCLOUD has ever had. We stay in touch. Stay safe.

My dear Magda, thank you for those kind words. You know my 'personal' email, which I will continue to monitor. So, do keep in touch. Thanks for your ears and your own excellent musical taste. Very Best Regards, DrJ

Jazz at 100 Today!

448! That's an accomplishment. You produce great radio. I look forward to your return! Thanks for all the music here on M-X CLOUD and best wishes.

Thanks, Rus. That's just 448 on WHYR. We go back a LOT further. BTW, I have some photos I plan to send you at WTJU, as I've been downsizing. Looking forward to getting back in the saddle in 2021. Thanks for your ears and support. It's all on you now, until then. So, keep the music strong! Very Best Regards, DrJ

I certainly will miss the "...I'm Dr Jazz, welcome to G&M" intro and the two hours of fine music that followed. Thanks for all the work you did, hope to hear that nice voice of you somewhere in 2021.
