For many years, my quest for the human voice and spirit has regularly led my radio dial to KLCC. The DJs are among the best I’ve heard — charming, witty, knowledgeable and music-centered.

But something is amiss — in recent weeks I have tuned in to KLCC programs usually hosted by Kyle Christopher and Cina Kraft only to be greeted by Muzak. What gives? Has management decided that listeners can’t tell the difference between live and canned shows? Like other canned things, are volunteers considered disposable? Will KLCC soon become a victim of auto-play?

Do other listeners even care?
