The Jazz Decades

I just read that Ray Smith died last month. I don't know how I missed that and I rather wish I had never heard it. For the last 38 years Mr Smith was the host of Jazz Decades on WGBH radio. He brought us some of the best music the world has ever heard once a week for more than 1,900 weekends. He shared his great knowledge and experience with his grateful listeners, displaying charm, wit, and an infections enthusiasm for his subject. While it is comforting to note that 'GBH will broadcast the archived shows, Ray Smith himself will be sorely missed.
