...Public Radio comes to me via KUNC at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley my alma mater where I earned my Master's Degree in Human Communication.  I also get the signal via XM Public Radio over the satellite to my home and my car.  But I have a dilemma. Satellite radio does not carry Scott Simon or Liane Hanson.  I am addicted to listening to Scott Simon on Saturday Mornings and Liane Hanson on Sunday mornings.  I have done this for years.  My direct radio signal comes from Greeley to a translator on Baldy Mountain above Breckenridge.  With heavy rain last week the signal got strange a couple of times.  There was an echo.  This morning it is gone.  Nada.  Nothing.  No Liane to make my Sunday.  Probably the worst part is that I will not be able to enjoy Liane and Will Shortz and the puzzle segment.  Rats.  I thought about getting in my car and speeding down the hill to Denver an hour away just to catch the signal.  Of course I did not do that as I am an optimist.  I keep checking to see if the signal is there instead of static.  It is still static.  Double rats.
