And While We’re Talking about the CBC: Bad Scheduling Choices by the Nation's Broadcaster

Tell me, why is Shelagh Rogers’ new program The Next Chapter scheduled right in the middle of Saturday Afternoon at the Opera? I’d like to listen to both, as I’m sure many others would, but at the moment one must choose. At least with Eleanor Wachtel’s Writers and Company which now competes with Sunday Afternoon in Concert, the show is rebroadcast late Thursday evening so the listener who likes literature AND serious music can catch them both.

The terrible suspicioun that is lurking in the back of mind is that the brass really don't want any of these programs to have good listener scores so they can cancel them. Or am I just being paranoid?
