Subject: RE: BS: NPR: You want fries with that pledge?
Years ago NPR used to have some wonderful folk music and radio dramas, but after a fiscal disaster (I think this was in the early 1980s) in which someone criminally or just stupidly trashed the NPR bank account, many of those programs went away. I would love to see them take a look at those lost programs and see if they can come up with something similar. In particular the Irish music they used to play, and programs like "Mind's Eye."
