Radio Pick: Keller on Old Sturbridge Village

TORONTO, ONTARIO - This week's radio pick comes from morning commentator Jon Keller from WBZ Newsradio 1030 in Boston, who is available on a podcast.

Keller had an especially good group of essays this past week, covering such issues as the possible end of the Boston Globe newspaper and why people are leaving Massachusetts (which in fact makes a nice companion piece to one of the entries on this blog). However, my favorite was one describing a rare tourist attraction that has increasing business during this recession, Old Sturbridge Village. His near-ode to the institution and its relevance to modern life in this two-minute commentary was a nice reminder that the art of the short-form radio broadcast did not die with Paul Harvey.
