News mixed with other KPCC shows
This channel used to be just the news shorts and was not comingled with other KPCC shows. I *LOVE* the news shorts and want the other shows out of the mix.
I subscribe to some of those shows and really *DON'T* want some of the others. Now I'm getting duplicates of some of the other shows that I've subscribed to. Now it's just a mess.
