WHYY Reception

I got in the habit sometime during my middle school years of listening to the radio as I got ready in the morning. As soon as I walked into the bathroom, I’d switch it on. My choices in station varied over the years, but since moving to Philly, my morning staple has been WHYY. I am not embarrassed to admit that I love NPR and I think we’re so lucky around here to have such an outstanding branch of that service.

Except that lately, I can’t get them to come in clearly in my bathroom. The rest of the apartment isn’t too much of a struggle, but the bathroom absolutely refused to tune in to 90.9 fm. My mornings feel off, like I’m missing an important component of my day. It makes me sad not to be able to hear Morning Edition and the local news and weather. I am tempted to bring my computer in with me and turn on the streaming feed, but that seems like an unwise idea, as my computer isn’t too fond of tropical humidity. I’ve been listening to CDs instead, but it’s a sorry substitute.
