Robert Conrad - wasn't [isn't?] he the voice of the Cleveland 
Orchestra radio broadcasts in the 70's?  As for his show, it sounds a 
bit like what the late Richard L. Kaye did on WCRB after the BSO on 
Saturday nights for many years.  Don't recall the name of the show 
["Saturday Night?"].  It was of course taped during the week - RLK 
certainly wasn't at the studios until 1am Sunday mornings!

Also: as far as I know neither WGBH nor WBUR (nor WCRB) runs a 
syndicated show called
Weekend Radio. Originated at WCLV in Cleveland with host Robert 
Conrad (no, not the actor),
the show mixes comedy bits by the likes of The Goons (Peter Sellers, 
etc.), Flanders and
Swann, Bob Newhart, and Jean Shepherd with light classical pieces. 
Enjoyable; but as far as I know it has not aired in Boston. Wonder if 
WCRB might consider it...?
