I would like to see WGBH attempt a daily version of something similar to Radio Boston, which I enjoy a lot. It's really good, smart radio; I'm sure it's also not cheap, relatively speaking, to produce. Maybe that's what they have in mind with Emily Rooney's show. Or maybe they can hire David Boeri (I'm not sure what else he is doing now besides working at WBUR). 

I'm not a Tell Me More fan, and the World Service's mid-afternoon schedule has pockets that don't seem to work for an American audience, which as Aaron says limits early afternoon programming. This is where Day to Day's cancellation hurts. For instance, previously WGBH could have had the second hour of Talk of the Nation to itself.

This is the BBCWS schedule for tomorrow afternoon (EST). There seems to be some variation each day in the 2 p.m. ET block, so keep that in mind, too.

Noon: Europe Today
1 p.m.: World, Have Your Say
2 p.m.: Documentary
2:30 p.m.: Americana
3 p.m.: Outlook
3:30 p.m.: The Strand
