Our Week In The Web: July 3, 2015

This article is more than 5 years old.

There have been a great deal of programming changes around here lately — what with the US Supreme Court releasing groundbreaking decisions right when we go live to air and all — and we just wanted to take a minute to say thank you to everybody online and out there listening live on their radios and computers for sticking with us. When news breaks, we want to make sure that we reflect those changes in our programming. As such, we occasionally change our scheduled shows, but we know it can be hard to keep track, especially when we forward promote the next day's broadcasts for more than 24 hours in advance. As we dropped shows like our interview with beloved children's author Judy Blume (which happened this week, by the way) or our conversation with harmonica master Howard Levy (this week, too), we wanted to say thank you to everybody for sticking with us through the changes, and fully participating in the conversations that resulted, both on air and online.
