Yesterday, radio host Marion Webster announced she would cease broadcasting her program "Marion's Attic" October 31.

Marion Webster said the decision was due to financial reasons, aging equipment and the fact she was getting older.

It's kind of sad to see Marion's Attic go. She hasn't been in the best of health
for years. For most of the show's run, Kristena, her homecare worker has had to do the show with her. Many of the records she plays are available on the internet, anyway. Still, this program was an important part of my musical education and Marion will definitely be missed.

Marion Webster began broadcasting on Wbcq in September 1999. In 2000, Marion's Attic moved from Tuesday afternoons and expanded from half an hour to an hour. It has had a few different time slots since then. Currently the show can be heard Sunday afternoons at 5:00.
