Favourite Releases of 2016
Here are my choices for my favourite releases of 2016. It was a very
good year. You'll also see a second list of very worthy recordings.
These came about after listening to 500+ recordings from 29 different
countries and too many artists to count (well, I could but the music is
what counts.) I hope you find (or have found) some music you like.

As of July 1, 2016 taintradio.org will no longer be available. After 8 years of demonstrating successfully that independent and unstructured programming -- unfettered by suits, hired guns, and managers -- works. We at Taint Radio are sad to see it go, but equally proud of what we've been able to accomplish. Major props to Bob Rogers, the creator and heart of Taint Radio for his dedication and passion. We, the programmers, salute you. And we salute you, the discerning listeners to Taint Radio, for your support. One Man's Jazz will continue at this website with new presentations weekly. Keep tuning in. Tell your friends! More news to follow.
Presenting Phase 3 of One Man's Jazz. First, twelve and a half years at CKUW, then Taint Radio for four and a half, and now this website will host the show. The goal is to keep the music rolling, with a new presentation weekly. You'll notice a few tweaks to the way the playlists are presented as well. And yes there's now a Facebook page for One Man's Jazz. Watch for weekly posts there with news about the show, playlists, and other interesting items.
