All I remember about her is that she was on WXHR -- which only became 
WXHR-FM when 740 became WXHR(AM) -- for some time.  I seem to remember 
first hearing about her in an announcement that she would soon be 
"returning."  Which suggests that she had been with the station in the 
past (before I had an FM radio, I think).  Perhaps she was on maternity 
leave or something, I don't know.  I don't think I remember her on WCRB, 
but I definitely remember her on WXHR as one of only two female voices 
on classical music radio.  The other was Nirmal Daniere (spelling 
approximate), who was on WBCN for some time and, I believe, eventually 
was on WCRB.
