Sad that WMUB was locked into NPR

How sad it is that WMUB has lined up lock step with the public pablum of NPR. While NPR has some well produced programs, this programming is available on at least two other stations in the region. The local content is what made WMUB great, I personally love help desk and the homey dissertations by Professor Winkler even though I disagree with him most of the time. The University, the community and the public listening audience would have been better served by running AWAY from NPR and not into its corporate arms. Mama Jazz would have never happened without a petrie dish like WMUB as support. The next Mama Jazz won't have this kind of opportunity as our radio station will be too busy suckling from the corporate NPR teat forever more.
