Something was different

When I woke this morning from my clock radio springing to life, I noticed that there was something different. A different voice was softly speaking to me from the corner, different to the one that I was used to each morning at seven, preparing me for the day. WCAL, St. Olaf’s classical music Public Radio station is no more. Rather, it’s transitioning now, simulcasting with KSJN, MPR’s classical station, following the buying of WCAL by MPR, which was finalized this weekend. I’m not sure what all changes this will bring, but it does make me a little sad. I am a fan of MPR, but on the whole, I’ve liked WCAL’s classical programming better, especially in the morning, when MPR has done more talking than playing music. The announcers are trying to assure the listeners that classical radio in the TC will improve because of the buyout; I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
