Ironically, WBOS is now trying just the opposite tack.  Starting this
week, their morning show (6am to 10am) is "all music" (and ads, of course,
along with prerecorded liners touting their all-music mornings) and no
jocks.  The remainder of the weekday, though, they do have an announcer.
Same playlist as before, or so it seems.
