One thought on “Honesdale Friday on Living Jazz!!

  • Sonja Hedlund

    Beside hosting this show, Thane does something special every week for WJFF. He is in the Honesdale studio before 6 a.m.most Mondays preparing to open the station at 6 with HIS LIVE VOICE. Toady 12/26 he is there too. People who do this are called ‘openers’ – having someone open the station means that they broadcast the current weather, tell what things are closed, give special announcements. It would be great if the station would return to this practice and start the day with a live person. THANK YOU THANE!
