Somewhere along the radio dial, amid the bluster of conservative blowhards and guy-centric sports talk, is public radio. And while those words can be code for "liberal, hippie, elites" in a state like Texas, KUHF has managed to deliver the kind of legitimate local discussion so often missing from radio in the form of Houston Matters. And at the center of the show is the soft-spoken Craig Cohen, who deftly moderates discussions on a wide variety of far-ranging topics, all focused on Houston. His shows are not only topical but well researched, and his guests are fascinating. It is, simply put, the best midday listen on the airwaves.
