KPCC changed their programming lineup!
There’s good news and there’s bad news.
First, the good news: A new show called Day to Day starts at 9AM, pushing Airtalk and it’s host – the whiny and unbearably irritating Larry Mantle – back to 10AM. That’s good news because I just can’t stand that guy and now I won’t have to listen to him during my morning drive.
The bad news: John Rabe who hosts All Things Considered during my drive home has chosen to leave so that he can become a reporter covering “health care and affordable housing issues.” LAME. The new girl seems like she can do just as good a job as John used to, but I don’t think she’ll be able to come up with such classic one-liners as “A motorcycle and a bus from a school for the blind collided on the 91 today. Bet they didn’t see that one coming.” John Rabe was funny and not at all like those stuffy news-readers over at KCRW, the “other” NPR station in LA.
It’s only radio.
