WQCD-FM PLAYLIST or those of you who reside in or around the New York area, Smooth Jazz station WQCD 101.9FM recently started adding electronic music to its playlist and has recoined itself as "New York Chill". Along with tracks from Chris Botti, Sade, Boney James, Stevie Wonder, Rick Braun and Earth, Wind & Fire, they have added music from the likes of Jazzanova, Gotan Project, Bebel Gilberto, Adani & Wolf featuring Ernest Ranglin, and a bunch of others.
