David Elliott, who was more than likely the host of that program, plays a

include a Harvard professor's eloquent defense of Ebenezer Scrooge.

WHRB's normal weeklyblineup is jazz 5AM - 1 PM; ckassical 1PM - 10 PM, 
and rock overnight. During reading and exam periods they have what they 
call Orgies: extended examinations if a particular composer or artist's 
work. Those can last several days.
