I'll be listening less

Golly, congratulations, now you’re just about the same as WVXU.

Why do you want to lose listeners who previously heard Diane in the morning and, much as we enjoy her, really don’t need an encore later that day?

Speaking for myself, I’ll probably be listening to WMUB two or three hours less a day. That’s not even counting the many evenings I’ve enjoyed Mama Jazz for an hour or two (or three). Is she retiring?

How about overnight jazz? We always turn in listening to Tony Moad (Yuck) and better yet, the weekend guys. Can’t remember their name(s), (Studebaker???) They played much better jazz than Tony M. Are they gone, too? If this a money-saving move, it doesn’t seem to be very well thought out. Save a few bucks, lose a few (or more) listeners.

Whatever. Good luck.

[No original hours of Mama Jazz have been produced since 2006. Repeats of shows produced through then will air on HD2 from 8 pm to midnight ET, and be streamed on the web. - Ed.]
