This American life has always been an interesting piece of Americana. I have been listening for years. The music they select is always of the most interesting nature. I always liked Jim Ward Morris' work when it was played on the radio and I'm glad to see their still using his work from the album, "Ten Instrumentals for Film and Radio"
I will say that it's too bad that Ira Glass has altered it from it's original nature: a showing various American lives from the their perspective. It seems like Ira has gotten a little too excited about TV and now he's doing a reality show.
I say it's aces for the music, and it's alright for TV, but it's original honesty and empathy have been lost.
