Wake up to news, not bird songs

What do “Morning Pro Musica” fans get from MPBN that they couldn’t get from the classical music section at a record/tape/CD store? The ponderous, somnolent palaverings of Robert J. Lurtsema. Well, buy some 45s and play them on 33.

We “Morning Edition” fans like to know what’s going on in the world, in a manner more thoughtful and thorough than that given in five- or 10-minute news blips by the commercial stations. To be aware and interested in global and national news is a quality in short supply in our commercial, fast-food world.

To see that there are those who would deprive us of that so that they can have their chirping birds, sedated ramblings, and blissful ignorance is infuriating. Wake up! Frank Owen Orono
