WBUR and NPR Blast From The Past 08/11/16

It was 1970-something, and I was growing up in the suburbs of NYC, rocking out to top-40 on WNBC, while super-cool DJ Lee Masters announced the hits of the day. Fast-forward to a call from my favorite radio station now WBUR (How times have changed ;) Apparently super-cool DJ (aka Jarl Mohn, the new CEO of NPR) is in town, and were going on a pedi-cab ride through the Back Bay. Since his stint as DJ at WNBC, Mohn has held high-level positions in public radio as well as MTV, VH1, CNET and E! In this day and age, you need all that and more to make the news relevant to the masses.
