I heart public radio

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?

    {{sigh…}} I miss KPCC.

    The NPR stations here are just NOT the same.

    We {heart} KPCC so much that even though our primary public radio contribution goes to our local stations, we still support our “home” station.

  2. Thank you so much for the kind words! It’s always wonderful to hear how we impact people’s lives through the work we do every day.
