Radio Days

We'll miss turning on our radio and listening to our favorite radio station, NPR. We listened to NPR as we got ready in the morning, with our morning cup of coffee, with our afternoon wine, and pretty much every time we were home. Some of our favorite shows included Weekend Edition with Scott Simon, Studio 360 with Kurt Anderson, The Brian Lehrer Show, Morning Edition with Steve Inskeep and Renee Montagne, music with Jonathan Schwartz, All Things Considered, and last but not least Car Talk with brothers Tom and Ray Maliozzi. We loved how the Car Talk brothers cracked themselves up and we, in turn, would crack up. It won't be quite the same hearing it online.

Another radio station on regular rotation has been 98.7 Kiss fm. We could do without some of the crappy R&B songs they play on heavy rotation, but we loved the mix of their old school songs that most other radio stations don't play. Thanks to Kiss fm, Saturdays from 7 to 9 pm was always fun time at our apartment.
