'Day to Day' turns 2

The NPR program produced in Culver City has been on the air two years today. Jeff Rogers is the show's third executive producer in that time, but the hosts are still Alex Chadwick and Madeleine Brand. Coming from here "Day to Day" has added a needed West Coast flavor to National Public Radio, mostly during its daily hour (9 a.m. on KPCC, noon on KCRW) but also in other shows. Sometimes I wish they would get out of L.A. more, but it's good to hear their local contributors such as Xeni Jardin, Annabelle Gurwitch and the musician (and former Herald Examiner jazz critic) David Was. I like the exchanges with Slate, more than some listeners do. Today's show has a piece on The Aristocrats: link here.
