I could be confused but, I know that 'BUR runs the Beeb from 9:00 to
10:00AM. That's when 'GBH airs the Takeaway for the second time. I
haven't spent enough time listening to know for sure whether this is a
repeat of the program that airs from 6:00 to 7:00AM, but I think it
isn't. WNYC AM now airs four hours of the Takeaway every morning and I
doubt that they run the same hour four times; I suspect they run two
hours twice. This suggests that there are two spearate hours available
every day and WGBH's 9:00 hour would not be a repeat. Also, when does
'GBH air the BBC in the mornings? 5:00 to 6:00? That would seem to be
the only slot available, but I don't think I've heard the BBC on 89.7
at that hour. Doesn't jazz end at 6:00AM--not 5:00AM?
