Slowly fading away

I listen to WBGO on my iPad or iPod. Recently the station stays connected for only five to ten minutes. I live in the Jazz limited state of North Carolina and had a break through when I discovered the great apps. Either technology has passed you by or for whatever reason, my pleasure is short lived. I hope this is just a glitch, but so far it's been about three months. If it can be fixed, kudos, if not kudos!

Somebody cares @ WBGO, this app is my go to now. I moved to South Carolina and the station gets better with time

Great new interface

Finally! It just plays when I click the app icon, no more looking for another button, no more deciding on the live broadcast or a (fantastic) program from the vault. Do poke around on the site, there is a whole universe of impeccable reporting, reviews and programming that keep this timeless music in rhythm with your heart. Thank you to the management for understanding that I just can’t wait to hear my BGO. Great improvement on the app of the greatest radio station in the world.

Soul de Lune ,

Jazz Organ etc...

I love WBJO. Been listening for 20 years. I happen to a Hammond lover. And a lot is played on the station. Good sound . I hope one of the programmer is reading this as I would love to hear a tune from our latest album with “Soul de Lune” being played. Or “Generations” by Melvin Sparks, Don Williams, Joe Hrbeck and Jeff Soulman Brown. Will find under Jeff’s name. A tune called “cousin Larry” written by Jeff for Larry Young. Just keep playing the music that the world loves .
