Now, a certain PubRadio Classical music personality, whose name I can never seem to get, encourages listeners to tell friends and family in other time zone that they should listen and, if necessary, he says that they can timeshift the programming. That would be cool. Does anyone know what he means?

Anyway, thanks, Marvin, for the programming and for clueing us in.
