Morning Edition rocks!

This semester, I am teaching a course at one of our extended campuses, over an hour away. It's normally a pretty dull drive with the paucity of decent radio stations in the area (the state cars they give us don't even have tape decks), but yesterday I was on the road early enough to catch the end of Morning Edition on the university NPR-affiliate. Inside half an hour, I got to hear Bob Edwards talking to Robert Christgau about this year's Pazz and Jop poll and then a feature story on Jenny Toomey. That's quality radio programming. (Unfortunately, the drive back featured an infuriating duet on how the government wants to crack down on "obscenity" while letting media consolidation steam forward.)
