Even as KCRW abandons "Day to Day", KQED-FM in San Francisco and Sacramento has added it to the schedule. It begins today (October 3) at 11 pm PDT.Link. That's awesome news!, but -- boy, the timeslot sure sucks. Dunno about you, but 11pm weeknights is reserved for a special man in my life. ‹le sigh›.
Regarding KCRW's deletion of Day to Day from its lineup, some BoingBoing readers wrote in to complain that all publicly available e-mail addresses for feedback on the KCRW.com website either bounce back, or send back auto-replies indicating that nobody can respond to your e-mail, but would you please send money for a pledge drive that happened in August. Boing Boing friend and intrepid sleuth Shawn Sites says:
When I called KCRW about the three emails not working, they gave me firstname.lastname@example.org to send it to and that one didn't get returned.Reader Justin asks,
Considering that Day to Day is produced in LA, I'm surprised KCRW pulled it. I assume they're still planning on producing it there?"Day to Day" is made in LA, but was never produced at KCRW to begin with. The program is produced in the studios of NPR West, in Culver City. And among the more than 100 stations nationwide that carry it, KPCC in LA still airs "Day to Day" at 9am weekdays.
