Public Radio New Year's Eve

I did some listening around the 88-92 band just before midnight on 
New Years Eve, while driving home from work.   While WGBH did pick up 
the NPR live New Years Eve all night jazz show, I was disappointed 
that the majority of the stations just stuck to their normal Sunday 
evening programs, airing either public service or classical music 

Don't get me wrong, I'm a strong supporter of public radio.  But I'm 
disappointed that more stations didn't break format and air some 
programming with a celebratory mood that people would actually want 
to listen to on New Years Eve.

It makes one wonder if those making programming decisions at these 
stations are really depressed, really anal, or just plain lazy, or a 
combination of the aforementioned.
