Same Old Same

Battle of the Bands?

Boston’s three NPR stations not only are airing similar if not identical news and music programs at the same time (WGBH’s Celtic on WGBH and WUMB’s Celtic Twilight With Gail Gilmore), as well as the head-to-head syndicated NPR news/talk programs on WGBH and WBUR. Two of them are producing competing spring music festivals at the same time as well: http://www.bostonfolkfestival.org/ (former name before being re-branded “WUMB Music Fest “) and http://www.wbur.org/support/springfestival

Folk fans will have to choose between WBUR’s Spring Festival, with Livingston Taylor, and the WUMB Music Festival, with Kate Taylor, both starting at noon this coming Sunday.

So much for diversity from our public radio stations.
