This is the Radio Boston rundown for Jan. 20. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • It's official: Attorney General Maura Healey is throwing her hat in the ring for Governor of Massachusetts. Healey has the trappings of a favorite at this stage, with strong campaign coffers and higher name recognition than her major opponents. But the road from AG to Governor hasn't been an easy one, historically speaking. Can Maura Healey buck this trend? We unpack all of this with WBUR Senior State House Reporter Steve Brown and Steve Harshbarger, former Attorney General in Massachusetts from 1991 to 1999, and the Democratic nominee for Governor in 1998.
  • Verizon is updating from 5G to 5G ultra wideband. The thing is, that's just 5G on a different frequency, and that frequency could interfere with airline systems that tell planes how low or high to fly when landing. We take your calls on this - and the rollback of long-used 3G systems - with Boston Globe tech reporter Hiawatha Bray.
  • Musician, composer and author Rob Kapilow is performing digitally tomorrow for the Celebrity Series of Boston. His show is called, "What Makes It Great: with Rob Kapilow - The Music of Lerner and Loewe" which explores the works of songwriting duo Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe. We speak with Kapilow about the performance and the inspiration behind it.

This program aired on January 20, 2022.
