Night and day

We wrote a few weeks ago about our favorite radio show, hosted by Jonathan Schwartz, being moved from Saturday afternoon New York time to Saturday evening. We fretted that the move might be tough on Schwartz, who's in his 70's now, since he also has a show on Sunday afternoon.

We fretted needlessly. The Saturday show is recorded on Saturday afternoon and played back (on WNYC-FM in New York) on Saturday evening. Not only that, but it is streamed live while it's being recorded, as well as being heard when it's being played back. And so listeners on the internet can catch the show at either of two times. For those of us on the West Coast, that's either 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.; or 5 to 9 p.m. on Saturday.

The later stream is at the usual places: on wnyc.org; on iTunes under talk radio, WNYC-FM; or on Sirius/XM satellite channel 4. The earlier stream, however, is at a place all its own: http://wnyc-special.streamguys.org/wnyc-special.m3u.

Alas, the Sunday show is not streamed, as far as we know. For that, one has to either subscribe to satellite radio, or go to New York.
