Although she had not made any new recordings in recent years, her program <strong><em>Piano Jazz</em></strong> was the longest-running music show on NPR, and one that we carried for several years. Mary Virginia Swain posted on our website:</p><blockquote><p>I listened to this show religiously when WHQR carried it. Such a delightful show, and Marian McPartland was a gem of a creative talent.</p> Fri, 23 Aug 2013 09:00:00 +0000 Cleve Callison 41894 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for August 23, 2013
