For those of you frustrated that The Bob Edwards Show is no longer repeated in the 7:00 AM EST timeslot, I've added a long post to my blog about how you can timeshift the show for enjoyment on your commute.

Whoa...major program changes

Today begins the re-programming of XMPR; I'm going to post my thoughts about it to <a href="http://blogs.oldradio.net/">my blog</a> once I've given them some time to percolate, but I'm interested in hearing your take on the new XMPR.

So...whaddya think?

August...

While Bob takes the month off running some of the best shows from the past, around here I'm going to try to get some catch-up work done: 1) I'm going to work on the Previous Guests Calendar, which has slipped pretty far behind. The show's own website has archived "next week on the show" information ...

Mel Karmazin

I have to admit I was disappointed in this interview; while I understand why it was impossible for the show to take him on as if he were an Alaskan Senator, the interview was way too heavy on Mel's PR-speak and far too short on serious questions. Examples: instead of asking if terrestrial radio was ...

Chuck and Bob (more from Atlanta)

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution blog has another photo of Bob, this time with Rolling Stones keyboardist Chuck Leavell and his wife, Rose Lane. One tidbit from the blog entry: During the speech, he said he?s writing a book that has elements of ?intrigue, smears, lies, hush money and a spy.? When Bu...

Article on Bob's trip to Atlanta

The AccessAtlanta blog has an article interviewing Bob, and it includes a photograph of Bob with one of his producers, the lovely Andy Danyo. (Wonder if she beat him at darts while at the Latitudes Bar?)

Detroit Free Press mention...

The Detroit Free Press has an article mentioning the show's upcoming Murrow Award, titled Addiction Haunts Celebs (relax, Bob isn't checking into rehab anytime soon, so far as I know). I only point to it because it made me chuckle this morning: Meanwhile, the guy murmuring "Take that, NPR!" was XM P...

Re: Bob Edwards Show Theme Music?

So, is the theme just a custom-written track, or is it available somewhere? Can anyone offer some more information about it? I talked to Executive Producer Steve Lickteig, who was kind enough to let me know the song Bob Edwards Show Theme was composed specifically for the program by L.A.-based musi...

Lee Abrams

When Orbitcast first announced that Abrams was leaving XM, I thought about suggesting to the show Bob interview him. I never did send that email, because I realized (since proved by the interview that aired this morning) he wouldn't talk about what I really want to know...exactly when XM went "off t...
