Classical change in Washington DC

In Boston, classical fans had to change their presets when WCRB moved to 99.5 FM, but at least the
station is still around. Washington DC just lost their commercial classical outlet, WGMS
(Washington's Good Music Station?) which is now playing adult hits as "George 104". But classical
is still around, thanks to WETA picking it up.

However while the move has no doubt pleased classical fans, it's annoying fans of shows that have
gotten displaced, like NPR news/talk/entertainment (though I think WAMU may carry them) and
a locally produced folk show (the manager of the New Christy Minstrels comments on their
blog that he's upset that the show was cancelled).

Well, can't please everyone I guess...
