I was reminded last night that some of our local jazz fans look to this blog to find out what is on!! Well, that was the purpose of it in the first place. I have tended to make this a secondary operation after I have emailed people with my nag. This really needs to be corrected (in my head anyway), and so I have reproduced below the attachment from the last nag that lists OCTOBER'S interesting events.
