I don't know what you have against Alan Chartock,
but I have listened to public radio stations all over the country and WAMC
is, without a doubt, the best there is. I always look forward to returning
to the WAMC listening area. I believe the quality of the programming
is due to Alan's efforts over the years to create his vision of a radio
station. WAMC has created a "community" of listeners just because
it is so quirky and the fund drives are so idiosyncratic. For those who
like the more traditional style there is always WMHT.
I will miss Robert J. Lurtsema, but I am pleased with the new format
for the weekends. Now Alan has to find the new idiosyncratic classical
radio show host who will inspire us, and prompt Alan to put more classical
music into prime time!
