Saturday Morning Radio

I love two shows on local radio on Saturday morning. One is the bluegrass show on WRPI in Troy from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. For those of you that hate country music and think bluegrass and country are the same, you are mistaken. I don’t like country music, but I like bluegrass. I met a couple once–she hated bluegrass but loved country and he hated country but loved bluegrass. Give bluegrass a try.

The second show I like is Car Talk on WAMC from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. You don’t have to give a fig about cars in order to enjoy this show. Click and Clack are not your average grease monkeys. They graduated from MIT and are intelligent, witty and funny. They do talk about cars and how to fix them. (People call in with their car problems and they help them to solve them), but they also talk about everything from what's in the news to such literary fads as deconstructionism.
