1. Damn, I didn't know...

I just looked it up and apparently today was the last show. I was not a regular listener anymore, but I always enjoyed it when I caught it, especially the author interviews.

It always did seem like a show from a bygone era... Sorry to see it end like that. Today's NPR is barely worth listening to any longer.

On Edit: I even bought his book: Innuendo and out the Other (I think). I'll have to look for it again.

WPR & Michael Feldman Will End Production Of "Michael Feldman's Whad'Ya Know?" On June 30, 2016


Final Live Show Set For June 25, 2016 In Madison

After 31 years, Wisconsin Public Radio (WPR) and Michael Feldman will end production of Michael Feldman’s Whad’Ya Know? on June 30, 2016. The live, two-hour weekly program, which was created by Michael Feldman in 1985, is among the most successful programs in WPR history. At its peak, the program was heard by more than 1.5 million listeners each week on more than 300 stations.

“The decision to end production of Whad’Ya Know? was a very difficult one,” said WPR Director Mike Crane. “Michael and his team have been part of our Saturday mornings for more than a generation, and we are truly grateful for all that Michael and this program have done for WPR. I also want to extend our thanks to the stations that carried the show; our distribution partner, Public Radio International; and, of course, show musicians John Thulin and Jeff Hamann, announcer Stephanie Lee, and the entire staff of the show,” he added.
