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

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.
