Last Friday I mentioned a Tribune story about how the revamped WBEZ had altered its plans to abandon all music programming by retaining Passport and creating a one-hour, weekly jazz show with Dick Buckley and Dan Bindert. In his Sun-Times column yesterday, media reporter Robert Feder revealed that the station is also keeping Afropop Worldwide, Ken Nordine’s Word Jazz, Sound Opinions, and American Routes.

It’s better than nothing, I guess, but aren’t you still curious about how management’s much-ballyhooed listener-input concept on the station’s second frequency (WBEW, 89.5) will actually sound? They’re still strangely secretive about it.
