More from our WPRB history series! A fan from August 1977 writes to WPRB to compliment us on our joke-making…
Yesterday, I heard the radio announcer on ‘Morning Classical’ say ‘The English Chamber Orchestra led by Richard BONE-IN-JAY.’ I assume Richard Bonynge. It’s pronounced BONNING—Australian—not imitation French.
Why the hell don’t you dump that ass! The girl who D-J’s on the weekends is no better either. What a disgrace to your school. Theybutcher (inexcusably) almost everything they say. There is no question that they know absolutely nothing about classical music.
Aren’t you, as station mgr, aware of what is broadcast over the air? Doesn’t anyone ever interview candidates for positions at the station? To say that it’s a disgrace doesn’t even come close to the work that is needed to describe this situation.
Maybe I shouldn’t write. My wife and I laugh like hell every morning at your broadcasts; it’s like a big joke. That’s it! It is a joke, isn’t it?
I just realized it as I was writing this letter! That puts things in a different light. Well, I’ve got a good me for you to try—
Play some 16th century airs and dances by an unknown composer and say…
Music from the court of Henry the Eighth by A-NO-KNEE-MOOSE (Anonymous). Get it! We’ll really laugh like hell.
