    WBGO collaborated with the National Endowment for the Arts and Jazz at Lincoln Center to bring you the live broadcast of the 2009 NEA Jazz Masters Award Ceremony in Rose Theater on October 17th.  We hope to post the complete live broadcast of the ceremony on this blog in April of 2009.  While we wait for that concert to be on-demand, here's an interview with the chairman of the NEA, Dana Gioia, who'll be stepping down from his position to focus on poetry at the end of the year. - Simon Rentner
