Jazz 91.9 WCLK celebrates 42 years as Atlanta's Jazz station.   As a National Public Radio affiliate station , we rely heavily on the donations of our listeners to meet our annual operating budget.   As 2016 draws to a close, we find ourselves just shy of goal and need that final wind of donations to help push us over the finish line.

I support First Tee Atlanta, whose mission is to positively impact the lives of Atlanta's young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life enhancing values, and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.  Thanks to everyone who came and said hello at John A. White Golf Course on their annual Community Day benefiting First Tee Atlanta on Saturday, August 20.   Great time, great weather, great cause and I played in the golf skills challenge and got in a round, too.  For more information about First Tee Atlanta and John A.
