WGBH versus WBUR

Well, one thing that WBUR did was make the Radio Boston program much
more than five times as good. Yes, it's now on the air five times as
many hours per week as it used to be, but the new host, Meghna
Chackrabarti (spelling, someone--PLEASE!), is WAY easier to listen to
than the rather somber Jane Clayson. Clayson may be brilliant, but her
subdued, self-effacing manner can be an awful drag for listeners. I
think that Clayson may be trying to become more upbeat--it seemed so
to me when I caught her filling in for Tom Ashbrook last week. I think
she still has quite a way to go, however.
