StLJN jazz site of the week: Night Lights

The StLJN jazz site of the week is Night Lights, the online companion to a radio program of the same name that airs Saturday evenings on WFIU (103.7 FM), a public radio station affiliated with Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.

The program's host David Brent Johnson uses the Night Lights Web site to provide access to archived audio and playlists for the previous week's program (posted each Monday morning); more important for our purposes, however, he also blogs entertainingly a couple of times a week about musicians and recordings, jazz-related news, and so on. Night Lights seems a good example of how radio and the Internet can complement each other, and is well worth a visit or a bookmark.

The StLJN jazz site of the week is, as the name implies, a weekly feature, created to call attention to Web sites that jazz enthusiasts may find useful, informative and/or entertaining. Do you have a favorite jazz- or creative music-related Web site or blog? If so, please feel free to make suggestions in the comments, or send an email with your recommendation to stljazznotes (at) yahoo (dot) com.
