planning. organization. well-oiled professionalism. clear playlists. intellectually stimulating artist interviews. coherent programming. the complete banishment of ridiculous slips of mind, uncouth commentary, teeth-grinding modern music, and digressions into baseball. these are the qualities discerning listeners have come to expect from everything on radio except classics without walls. don’t blame KUSF, it’s really not their fault.

classics without walls airs monday evenings from 10 to 11 PM pacific standard time, except for the seven months of the year we have to endure that daylight-saving crap and everything’s an hour off, so we air monday evenings from 10 to 11 PM pacific “daylight” time. i’ll tell you this much, it’s never yet been daylight while i’ve been there doing the damn show.
