I pretty much gave up FM radio a while ago, though I occasionally flip back to it. Lately, however, I have been listening to WCRB a lot ("Classical Radio Boston"). There is a very funny, understated kind of humor they possess, that often gets lost in the mellow, comforting and sometimes pompous tones common to most classical radio stations (think Frasier Crane on Quaaludes if you have never listened). This morning, for instance, during the half-hour news break I was informed that "Last night the Celitcs beat the Orlando Magic 102-97. Tonight, the Bruins play St. Louis at the Fleet Center, and the Symphony plays 'Hansel and Gretel' at Symphony Hall."
