Charlie can still be heard playing jazz on WMBR 88.1 from MIT though,
currently on Mondays 2 - 4 PM. He's had a jazz show there since about
when his WBUR show was discontinued.

Charlie is still working overnight shifts at WBUR as well, running
the BBC World Service and announcing the local breaks on the nights
that I don't do it, which are usually Monday, Wednesday and Sunday
nights at this point.

Not this week, though. He's on tour with his band. I'm working every
night this week through Sunday (except Saturday, which is Con Salsa).
