NPR's decision to cancel Talk of the Nation and replace it with a two-hour version of Here and Now is not setting well with RS.  RS is very disappointed with managements  decision...

Happy Trails,

RS

I assume you were a fan of the Political Junkie.  I was disappointed as well.

And because ToTN is gone, Sirius doesn't run Science Friday, at least not at a convenient time.  :(

Maybe it's time for us to produce the Ranger Sven Blogcast. JimmyC can be your first guest, for a segment titled, Things In Texas That Are Hard to Get Off Of Your Boots.

I liked Talk of the Nation.  I really liked the Political Junkie.  Here and Now, you're no Talk of the Nation...!

Hear and Now is essentially a cross between Talk Of The Nation and Fresh Air.

Yellowstone Public Radio doesn't carry either of the latter, but does carry Hear and Now and To The Point.

Having once been a big fan of TOTN back when Ray Suarez hosted it, I have to say Hear and Now has grown on me.

Certainly it's Talk Of The Nation LIGHT... but it'll do well enough.

I'd rather listen to Jazz anyway...
