This is the way it was when I was there, both as a station member and 
a senator.  I wish it could still be that way, but the philosophy is 
different now.

Exactly what do they need a board in the newsroom for?  For that 
matter, when is there ever any news on WMUA?   I never hear any?  
When I was there back in the 1960s, they had a UPI teletype near the 
entrance, and someone did the news on the hour.  I suppose they get 
the news by computer now, but I never hear any newscasts.

BTW, lately, I haven't been able to get WMUA online on my computer.  
Something seems to be wrong with the low-speed streaming.
