I just found this in my inbox:


Dear MBTA Customer:

Thank you for taking the time to let us know your thoughts on T-Radio.
As we stated at the launch of this pilot test, MBTA riders would
determine the fate of T-Radio. We have heard from a number of riders on
a wide range of issues including the content and style.

Consequently, as of Thursday, October 25th, T-Radio will be suspended.
While it is suspended, personnel from the MBTA and Pyramid Radio (the
operator of the pilot program) will review and discuss the hundreds of
emails received. Following a sufficient period of consideration, MBTA
staff will present a recommendation on how the comments and suggestions
might be addressed and whether a resumption of the pilot program is

As always, we will continue to try and make your commute better through
various means, and always ask for your feedback.

Thank you again for taking the time to write and have your voice heard.
Its appreciated.


Huzzah! A skirmish is won, although the battle is certainly not over, and the general war has been going on for years and will probably continue for years more. Thank you all for your support; please continue to watch this space for further updates and the field notes I've taken over the past few days.

Why, I'm in such a good mood that I'm not even going to snark that "Its" in the last sentence...oh wait, oops.
