I have listened to this programs for years, mainly because it comes on during times that I am on my way to here or there. Today I was driving around and listening to Lynn Rostteo Casper talk to the author of United States of Arugula, to the lead singer of Franz Ferdinand, and to the Sterns. I am thinking, holy cow, this is a pretty broad swath of people! The amazing part to me was how well she was able to paint a picture with her own words and the way she coaxes words out of her guests, especially impressive since its radio, nothing visual involved except in our minds. She is able to feed that fertile source of imagery by her words, not an easy task. Just thought I'd mention that since I rarely see any comments on her and her program and I am sick of bashing FN. Its fuutile, but it does make me feel better after I do it.
