news & notes?

So NPR wants to replace the disappearing “Tavis Smiley Show” with something new to target black audiences. Fine. But did they have to call the new program “News & Notes“? Is there a less original, more dull name conceivable?
Maybe I’ll start a network news show called “Moving Images With Accompanying Sound.” Or a new newspaper called “Things That Happened Yesterday That We Know About.” Or record a new album called “Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements.” Oh, wait.

One thought on “news & notes?”

  1. How about “Fresh Air,” “Marketplace,” “Morning Edition, “The Leonard Lopate Show”???
    Exciting stuff.
