    Mr. Jenkins
    I listen to your morning broadcast every Thursday on WPFW and must say, I enjoy it very much. The reason I’m emailing you is for the name of a song you close your show with. I’ts an instrumental sometimes played by harmonica and somtimes I believe by an electronic instrument of some sorts not sure. Is there any way you can email me the name of the artist CD so I can purchase it? It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance from a proud listner of WPFW and your show. Much success in the future and keep up the outstanding work you provide on monoring radio. Signed an Avid listner.

  2. Grant:
    Thanks for listening; I use two variations on Jaco Pastorius’ piece “3 Views of a Secret”; one comes from the Jaco anthology (and can also be found on one of his two Warner Bros. releases), the other comes from a Weather Report box set. Check Amazon, they’ll have it. Keep listening!
