Eddie Janusz reports a 41% programming time of classical music on his
Connecticut station bringing in only 17% of the revenue and concludes:
>But 45/17 is a slap shot. If you were running a public radio station,
>what would you do with those numbers?
It would depend on how I saw the station's mission. If the goal were
education and providing a resource that strengthened "high" culture, I
might very well not only keep classical music, but expand it to recherche
areas. If my goal were to satisfy the market -- in short, the same goal
as any commercial station -- I'd program more talk. In that case,
however, why should the station need public support at all?
