  Former NPR newscaster Jean Cochran was our special guest at last years at May 7th reception for WEKU Day Sponsors at Lexington's Griffin Gate Marriott Resort and Spa. Today we revisit that program, which was recorded in front of an audience of WEKU listeners. us for a show recorded before an audience of WEKU listeners.

Jean has been one of America’s most familiar voices to millions of radio listeners for decades as a newscaster on NPR’s Morning Edition.  Her newscasts have aired live on 849 member stations nationwide, heard by nearly 27-million listeners every week.

Last week, we aired a Facebook message from listener Rebecca, wondering if others shared her view that it was time to re-think the airing of The Best of Car Talk and we tossed it to you.  As of this weekend, we have had a total of three responses.  One from Tom in Lexington agreeing with Rebecca.

An NPR newscaster who helped wake America for 33 years joins us on our next program.  Jean Cochran retired from National Public Radio last year as part of a buy-out offered to many long-time employees at the network.

"The trouble is not in your set."  Difficulties that kept NPR's Morning Edition off the air for most of the hour between 6:00 and 7:00 am Monday originated at NPR in Washington.  By way of background, NPR's ENTIRE operation has been moved into new facilities during recent weeks.  WEKU apologizes for the inconvenience and disruption. We are in communication with NPR's technicians and management to discover what happened and we are confident that they are doing whatever they can to avoid future incidents of this type.

Thanks for your understanding and continued support.
