On the off chance anyone from WNED, Buffalo's classical music station, reads this: this sort of thing does not predispose me to giving money to WNED, something I had actually been considering doing. Now I think I'll just buy a pizza instead, or maybe get that wireless router I've been considering.
John Landis always came on the radio when I was getting off work, and I enjoyed listening to his show. He was knowledgeable and always conveyed a great love of classical music. I can only assume that his termination had something to do with the fact that he'd been there for a long time and thus was probably making more money than some of the less-tenured hosts. If that is the case, I would hope that the WNED brass note that the "Let's fire the ones who have been around the longest and therefore make the most money" strategy didn't work out so well for Circuit City.
Anyway, best wishes to Mr. Landis, and hopes that he lands on his feet in these times when so many people are hoping to land on their feet.
