Lydon going down a 3rd time...??????
First Christopher Lydon had a very public parting of the ways with WBUR.
Lydon's program has had ongoing financial challenges since it lost it's sweetheart deal with the University of Massachusetts, Lowell.
Last week, Public Radio International (PRI) announced it was no longer going to carry Lydon's show reincarnated show "Open Source".
Now WGBH-FM has announced it will no longer carry the show in Boston amidst being owed thousands of dollars for studio/production fees.
The Phoenix's Adam Reilly has this story:
WGBH nixes Open Source
One has to wonder if there is any future at all for "Open Source".....especially if it doesn't have a studio to broadcast from....
