Hang on, it’s going to be a bumpy ride. Radio Boston

Around here I'd say it is already a bumpy ride. Radio Boston is a new weekly radio program (Fridays from 1-2 p.m.) on 90.9 WBUR about Boston-related issues. It is great to have more media focus on local issues and this week's program is looking at transportation needs and problems in and around Boston.

One segment of the show is about the "inner belt" highway Route 695 that was proposed, but canceled in 1971.

One of the guests just paraphrased a quote by Albert Einstein suggesting that a newer and more radical and comprehensive approach is needed to fix the transportation problems in our area - "The significant problems we face can not be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them."

Another great quote from the show - "Every time you plan a road you are going to be expressing a certain set of values"
