CBSRMT made my late childhood and adolescence more interesting than it otherwise would have been without CBSRMT. I love listening to the show now, in middle age, because among other things it shows just how much richer, deeper, and even better educated we were in our national dialogue, back then, EVEN in a program supported by, and designed to help sell, advertising.
