    In honor of pet day on WBGO, we decided to imagine what would happen if our favorite pets would be named for jazz musicians. We got a little carried away- we invite you to join the fun and add to our list.

    We start with Max Roach who was married to Tabbey Lincoln

    The rest came in no particular order... All in good fun! And don't forget to make a pledge to wbgo in honor of your pet...

  • My Two Jazz Cats

    September 15, 2009. Posted by Andrew Meyer.

    On this pet pledge day, I thought it would be a good time to introduce you to the latest addition to our home.  Say hello to Dinah.

    Four and  a half months old, adopted from a shelter in Bloomfield a few weeks ago and making herself quite at home.

    You might remember our other cat, Dizzy, who moved in a year ago last Spring.

    These two jazz cats are still getting used to each other.

    But they love hanging out and listening to WBGO all day long (which their human companions are sure to leave on the radio while they're at work.)
