"Savvy Traveler" Waves Goodbye

They'll probably fill the hour with yet one more hour of stuffy, dry as
dust, BBC news. Can't people get the BBC on the Internet? Do we have to have
it on the radio? Does the CBC produce anything that WBUR could pick up
instead of the BBC? The BBC is out of touch with listener sensibilities on
this side of the Atlantic. WBUR's reliance on the BBC has certainly not
improved the station's sound or listenability. The entire BBC News air staff
sounds as if they walk around all day with clothes pins on their noses. Of
all the BBC programs that WBUR carries, the only one that I find worth
listening to is "My Word," which I guess is a kind of latter-day incarnation
of the late 30s/early 40s US hit "Information Please."
