One Response to Citizen Report: Old Dusty Bookshelves

  1. CK says:

    This is the most worthless and annoying program that KRCC has carried for a long time. (no offense to Catherine Beckman) How is it newsworthy? You can be sure that if the Gazette is a sponsor it will be as far away from relevant as possible.
    Please get rid of it, KRCC, and don’t waste good air time that could be put to better use.
