*Megan Birdsall and ragtime pianist Frederick Hodges were guests on Steve Kraske's Up To Date show on Wednesday.

*Abesha magazine interviews Hermon Mehari of Diverse.

*Black House Improvisors' Collective announced the lineup for their third incarnation.

*David Martin posted an excellent editorial about the Jazz District.

*Kansas City's "Loneliest Piano" resides in Union Station.

*An entity named GetJuke gave me a free lossless download for a previously out-of-print Chico Freeman album. They hoped that I would mention their "innovation platform for artists who want to promote their music over the social networks and beyond." The downloading process was seamless.
