The Current, Day 2

I caught a bit of each airshift on 89.3 yesterday, from Thorn's opening spot, to Mary Lucia's afternoon, to Mark Wheat's evening roundup. Each veteran alternative radio personality put on shows enjoyable and diverse enough I was able to leave the radio tuned to the same station for more than 30 minutes at a time.

It's a little odd having Jim Ed Poole and Dale Connelly (The Morning show) in the above-mentioned batch of DJ's. Even they seem to be adjusting after their move from KSJN 99.5, and maybe placing more emphasis on local music, though they have exposed me to local music in the past. (Barra, for example.)

Erstwhile howwastheshow contributor Jen Paulson sent me this account of a day of listening to the new station, which I've published at howwastheshow with the title "Jen Paulson has a date with her radio. And it lasts until 4 a.m."

Over at "The Usual Suspects," Jim Maguire says that though he'll miss the Irish music program "Thistle and Shamrock," overall he enjoys the new format of the former WCAL.
