Does popularity breed contempt?

By Dyana Neal | Posted in Host Blogs | 2 Comments

Jim & I actually watched the Oscars this past Sunday – a first for us, & we’ve been together since 2001. We don’t usually tune in to awards shows because they are so long & commercial-packed; if I want to see fashion pics from such events, there are plenty of websites that will help me […]

Oscar stuff…

By Mark Malinowski | Posted in Host Blogs | 4 Comments

Once again, the Academy Awards have come and gone, and, once again, I didn’t watch it on television.  Once reason is that the only awards I am interested in come at the end of the program, and having to get up at 3:30 am…well, it’s just too late for me.  Additionally, I like to say […]

What a weekend!

By Dyana Neal | Posted in Host Blogs | 6 Comments

As you are probably aware, WBJC had its Winter On-Air Fund Drive last weekend. Our listeners were as generous as ever & we actually exceeded our projected financial goal for the drive, so we’re a tired, yet happy bunch this morning. Big thanks to everyone who called in a pledge – you keep the music […]

What a nice way to end a workday!

A few weeks ago, I got a phone call from a man who needed me to help him ID a classical piece. That’s all in a day’s work around here, but there were a couple of unusual things about this request. First, the caller had a snippet of a recording to play for me, which […]

Getting in on the conversation

By Judith Krummeck | Posted in Host Blogs | No Comments

With “The Help” picking up four Oscar nominations today, I confess I’m only just catching up with this highly successful phenomenon.  I was certainly not one of those who contributed to its being on the New York Times best seller list for more than 100 weeks!  Having grown up under the egregious apartheid system in […]

Current TV: great for cooking shows, not much else.

By Dyana Neal | Posted in Host Blogs | 3 Comments

A variation on Mark Malinkowski’s TV-themed post from this morning… Jim & I watch almost no TV. He’ll check out the occasional sporting event, especially college basketball (the first two days of March Madness count as a religious holiday for him, on which it would be very foolish of me to try to schedule anything […]

“The Leopard”: epic in every sense of the word

By Dyana Neal | Posted in Host Blogs | No Comments

  Back in November, Jim & I were lucky enough to catch a revival screening of Luchino Visconti’s 1963 film “The Leopard” at the Charles. Since I occasionally play excerpts from the film’s soundtrack (fabulous work by Nino Rota, with a little help from Verdi) on WBJC & am a longtime fan of old movies, […]

Lethal urbanity

By Judith Krummeck | Posted in Host Blogs | No Comments

I am so incensed by the corporate greed that precipitated the financial meltdown with no (as yet) obvious repercussions, that I couldn’t imagine I would be able to sit still through a movie about it. Still, after reading some positive reviews, I went down to The Charles to see “Margin Call”. I have to say […]
