Mass Backwards ends WBAI run
End of an Era
After over 20 years, WBAI, through a massive reshuffling of its program schedues, has decided to cut the Mass Backwards program. Highlighting, old time radio drama, Jean Shepherd reruns, and very LOUD music, Max has entertained us over the years with his unique style of humor and occasional outbursts when failed studio equipment would take its toll on his patience. His 7:00 Sunday evening show, "The Golden Age of Radio" will continue and perhaps some of the Jean Shepherd material will find its way onto the schedule every so often. But alas, the 'scratchy record review' is banished to Max's locker until another day. I'm sure Shep fans are forever grateful for the years he has kept Shep in our ears, and between "The Golden Age of Radio" and his Saturday morning internet broadcast of the same name on at 11:00 am, he will continue to do so.
