There's a general columnist at the Boston Globe named Alex Beam,
and today, May 10th, he weighed in on announced changes at WGBH-FM
Boston.  (They're adding an hour of "Morning Edition" from
8:00 am til 9:00 am Monday through Friday; and picking up the
rerun of "Weekend Edition"  from 10:00 am until noon Saturdays
and Sundays after WBUR is through with them.)  The weekday change
is of little significance...they play multiple short pieces in that
hour anyway;  the 10:00 am to noon change on weekends is tragic and 
should not be allowed to stand.  This probably means no long-form
pieces on those days, like Mahler Symphonies or Bach or Handel
Oratorios.  For the Globe article, read:
