WGMS isn’t classical anymore. At 3pm today they became George 104, which is candidly described as a steaming pile of shit in musical form. It’s “70′s and 80′s and whatever we feel like.” Think of it as Disco Stu’s iPod on shuffle. Yeah, I know, you just threw up in your mouth. They fired all the on-air personalities this afternoon, and they’ve donated their entire music library to WETA, who will ditch all of their NPR programming in exchange for classical music.
So much for the excellent Intersection program, made entirely of local content (think DCist + Metroblogging DC + Radio = Magically Delicious), which is apparently heading for the refuse pile, along with other local content. If you’re interested in NPR content (which I was rather enjoying) you’re going to be stuck depending on the unreliable, scandal-ridden WAMU.
Thanks a lot, Bonneville, for running off some great local content.
