ow important is radio to the sun ix al and growth of tra- ditional jail? Consider this: Aside from free festivals or word -ol =mouth exchange between friends, the radio is one of the few places where a curious listener is likely to hear jazz in significant measure. Likewise, radio is the most effective way for the largest number ofjazz fans to hear a new release by a current artist or to receive information about the music. "A strong radio community means a strong music community," says WBGO GM Cephas Bowles. "With a flip of a button, a listener has access to a whole genre of music that they otherwise would have to pay to hear. Radio is the most cost-efficient way to reach the most people, so it must be kept fresh and alive." Broadcasting 24 hours a day out of Newark, N.J., WBGO is the New York metro area's only full-time jazz station. Despite its lack of competition, Bowles says that building and maintaining an audience for WBGO has become increasingly more challenging, as people's time and money are constantly diverted toward computer games, the Internet and television. For this reason, maintaining a high level of success means constant reevaluation of the station's presentation. "There are fewer and fewer stations doing what we are, and that has elevated us to a status that

' ti: ' no one could have anticipated," says Bowles. "On the other hand, to maintain that status, we've had to become more listener- centric than ever. We talk to our listeners and labels all the time, look at music '; charts, talk to artists and spend time in the clubs more than ever." Like many jazz stations, WBGO gets its income largely from its listeners. Bowles estimates that 50% of budget is listener- supported, with the remainder coming from grants and program underwriting. "We nee our listeners in order to survive, so we constantly have to evaluate the quality of the product we have on the he says. The station also affiliates itself with organizations such as jazz clubs and museums that serve a similar de graphic, in order to reach potential listeners. Scott Hanley, GM of Duquesne University's \V I )1'O. a Pittsburgh, Penn.-based NPR station that programs 100 h of straight-ahead jazz a week, belie es that the success of artists such as , Jane Monheit and Norah J bodes well for building the jail audicnc e. " I Ice familiarity of these artists to the general public has been helpful, because people are hearing a sringing group amid realizing that it is a sound they like." saes Hanley. "Even if No Jones crosses into the pop world, that's nothing new. Jazz has al vs crossed thc,c lines in one wav or anoth As those lines are crossed, the demographic for jazz shifts and widens. `Jail r.i lio's audience is skewing you than ever," states Alisa Clancy, operations director and morning host of KCSNI in San Mateo.

BRIGHT FUTURE continued /rum /gage 63 among the local titles are those by Hoku-nominees Raiatea Helm, Na Palapalai and Hawaiian female falsetto singer Anelaikalani. Kona Town, an album by Hawaiian -bred rock band Pepper, is also selling well. Meanwhile, the availability of Hawaiian music through the Inter- net and national record chains is expanding. Local -label releases have long been a significant part of the overall sales in Hawaii for Tower Records and Borders Books & Music. Representing many of the greatest artists from Hawaii Les Honda, area marketing manager for Borders Hawaii /Las WorlcSounc is your gateway to the sounds of the Islands Vegas, says sales of Hawaii titles typically make up 25% of Borders' total sales in Hawaii, and he hopes to achieve similar success in Las Vegas.

"Two stores sit in the middle of local [Hawaiian] populations, so we're going to reconfigure one of them to have 200 of the top local titles. Local groups go to Vegas to play all the time, and we're already getting inquiries about scheduling autograph sessions," he says, adding that, if things go well in Vegas, the chain may expand its Hawaiian music commitment in California, as well. All this couldn't come at a better time. Many local labels took a major hit last year when one high - volume island -based distributor, Olinda Road, declared bankruptcy and another, Navarre, closed its operations in Hawaii. The shut- downs didn't affect Hula or the Mountain Apple Company, which have their own distribution divi- sions, or Punahele Productions, which is affiliated with the Alterna- tive Distribution Alliance, but many of the second -tier labels were left stranded.

LOCAL RECORDING Whether local radio is doing enough to support island music remains an open question. Many observers say that the audio qual- ity of local recordings is no longer a significant issue when it conies to local radio play. "That may be a testament to Where home recording has gone," says Kim() Akane, pro- gramming consultant for KCCN FMI00 and Hawaiian KI NE 105, a 30 -year veteran of Hawaii's tur- bulent radio industry. The quality of the perform- ances is another matter. A grow- ing number of local acts are recording before they have frilly mastered the skills necessary to do so, and artists and producers alike rely heavily on electronics to make up for it. The wide- spread use of sound cards in "bedroom" recording has had a devastating effect on Hawaii's mid -level recording studios, as well. "It's very similar, as far as the trends in national mar- kets," says Tony Hugar, the owner of Audio Resource Hon- olulu, who has downsized to focus on serving a top -end national and international clien- tele. Several local labels have in- house recording facilities, but mid -level commercial studios have been replaced for the most part by computer -based bed- room operations that, in some cases, have limited production capabilities.

QUESTIONABLE: There's no question about it. 50 Cent collects his second No. 1 song in 13 weeks, as "21 Ques- tions" (Shady /Aftermath) advances 2 -1 on The Billboard Hot 100. The rapper's first chart- topper, "In Da Club," claimed pole position in the March 8 issue. 50 Cent is the first artist to have two No. 1 songs in 2003, and he is the first since Nelly to have a pair of chart- toppers in the same calendar year. Nelly had successive No. 1 hits last summer with "Hot in Herre" and "Dilemma." "21 Questions" is the first No. 1 for featured artist Nate Dogg. "21 Questions" is the fifth No. 1 hit of 2003 on the Hot 100. The longest- running chart champ of the year is "In Da Club," with a nine-week reign. In second place is "All I Have" (Epic) by Jennifer Lopez Featuring LL Cool J, with a four -week run. The song that "21 Questions" dis- placed, "Get Busy" (VP /Atlantic) by Sean Paul, was on top for three weeks. "Bump, Bump, Bump" (T.U.G.) by B2K & P. Diddy was No. 1 for one week. "21 Questions" is the fifth No. 1 of the rock era to have a title that begins with a numeral. The first such chart - topper was "96 Tears" by ?
