'CRANKY' PA LINDHOLM LETS OFF STEAM
VPR taking mondo heat lately for changes in programming.
Now comes Karl Lindholm of Shoreham, writing a let to the ed in today's FP, fully castigating My Turn squawker George Jaeger.
You see, Jaegermeister complained that VPR made all the wrong moves - he doesn't need all that talk on 107.9, and the classical music on 90.9 only reaches, like, 6 people.

Here are the grand thoughts from the mighty Hum.

- Most of the talk on 107.9 is good; The Story, Fresh Air and Vermont Edition are particularly informative, with Lindholm's kid Jane (Vermont Edition newbie) receiving high marks for being well prepared and keeping the jabber to a minimum, allowing for copious incisive questions.

- Sorry Lindy, but Classical does not receive well. We're in Essex, we're big Elgar and Bach fans, and we get static, man. We miss the clear signal.
Also, with a lot of us old-timers, we don't have the radios where we can bounce from one station to the next with the 'touch of a button'.
Plus, 90.9 is at a tight part of the dial, with other, stronger stations occasionally bleeding in. It sucks to hear Walter Parker, RUV, the christian station, and Star 92.9 duking it out!

I'm a beverage salesman, driving all over ther state, and I used to like the classical to unwind. Now it only comes in half the time.
