Since you are deejaying these days, here's something maybe worth knowing... On the premier Pac Northwest jazz station, KPLU-FM, the key deejay for the complete history and range of jazz is an older guy named Ken Wiley, now heard round the world courtesy of the Internet. Ken is brilliant and opinionated and sometimes harsh, but two of his favorites as people and jazzmen were Bill Finegan and Jimmy Rowles; he used to talk to them both regularly by phone. I'll pass on all the Sloane anecdotes--see how much he knew from the other side, so to speak!
