    I don’t use satellite radio but have listened to Bob Edwards Weekend every time I could since discovering the show with the Public Radio app on my phone. I often listened while on a long run on Saturday mornings and it really helped the miles go by. And while Doyle McManus could be a little annoying at times, the rest of the show was a joy. I hope Bob shows up again on public radio somewhere, but at the same time I don’t think they deserve him. NPR certainly doesn’t. Bob helped create the glory days of NPR when you could hear Red Barber talk with Colonel Bob on Friday mornings, essayists like John McIlwraith and Kevin Kling told wonderful offbeat stories, John Feinstein commented on sports, and for crying out loud, the diversity of opinion included bona fide socialist Michael Harrington. Those days are long gone. There is nothing like that level of diversity and originality evident in either Morning Edition or All Things Considered today. Instead we have to endure the morning happy talk of Steve Inskeep, Renee Montagne, and David Greene modeling the worst of mainstream media. Thank you Bob for being different. For being an original. I hope we get to hear you somehere again.
