When I lived in that country to the north one of the things that I missed most was National Public Radio. I did listen to CBC radio but honestly, it wasn’t the same. Now that I’m back in SoCal I am a loyal listener and subscriber to one of the two local NPR stations, KPCC. I find that listening to NPR teaches me something new every time. I learn about new happenings. I understand global issues better (the other day there was a great synopsis of the Greek debt crisis in more layman’s terms). I learn of new and upcoming music (have you heard the new Muppet album? It is phenomenal).
When MY DAD used to drive THE DIVA and I to school when he was in town during our high school days we weren’t terribly interested in talking. It was usually before 7am (high school started at 7:30). THE DIVA and I are not at our best in the morning. MY DAD always had NPR on in the car. When I started driving, I too listened to NPR. At my alma mater NPR was often on the radio.
I do love music. I listen to that, also. There’s something about listening to the radio when driving really keeps my brain working, piques my interest and I always learn something. Love you, NPR.
I’m participating in NaBloPoMo, are you?
