UJD | Jazz in the Community: WRR-FM to launch Jazz at Fair Park program Sunday

Founder's Comment:  This is something that is long past due. WRR has always been perfectly positioned to carry the torch for not only classical but jazz. This move to program jazz on the FM dial at WRR will be supported by Uptown Jazz Dallas with the hope that programming will continue to grow and expand across the board.
