Yes, Bob Bittner is to be commended for what he does on WJIB and on
Maine's WJTO (an actually-better signal in some Mass. coastal areas).
I think there should be a little more 'ancient' country / folk / blues
/ bluegrass, more hot '50s jazz a la Monk-Mingus-Coltrane-Parker-Davis,
and more '50s rock / R&B in the line-up but that's just my opinion and
I don't see him taking out some of the Mantovani and Melachrino Strings
for "Sixty Minute Man" and "Work With Me Annie" anytime soon.
Monk-Mingus,et al.... not mainstream at all. Like to keep WJIB mainstream
with a few semi-mainstream LP tracks each hour, such as Dinah Washington,
Billie Holiday. Sixty-Minute Man IS on the playlist, and Mantovani (except
for 2 songs) and Melanchrino Straings (except for 4 songs), are all gone. - I
do play 2 to 4 instrumentals an hour, but they're more "up" than those two
