Yesterday, I wrote about how I had written in to Marketplace about playing music during their midday report. At the time, I was apparently the only one who had written in about the topic, so yesterday’s segment was primarily a call for other listeners’ opinions.
And from the way Tess (the host) was ribbing David (the producer) yesterday, I figured that the music idea wouldn’t really have much of a chance. But, I wrote another short e-mail to them just to offer some encouragement in case they were still considering it.
I listened to the Marketplace Midday report today, as usual. They discussed the background music briefly but I think it’s been driven into the ground (no big deal, really). But, they did mention me by name on the show (around the 6:30 mark), including my call sign ;).
