So much for SiriusXM...

As most interested folks know by now, archive editions of The Bob Edwards Show have been marginalized to three airings a day, 6-9am East, 3-6am in the West, moving them well out of drive-time for most of the country.

More from Father Greg Boyle

This morning's interview with Father Greg Boyle of <a href="http://www.homeboy-industries.org/">Homeboy Industries</a> was great, but it made me want to hear more, so I went back to the August 11, 2005 <em>Bob Edwards Show</em> and listened again to the first time Bob sat down with Fr. Boyle. I thou...

XMPR sound quality
