Support Your Local Public Radio Stations

It is that time of year again: the fall membership drive us underway at the nation's public radio stations. As much as I find it annoying to hear the repetitive pleas, I understand that this is the price to pay for non-commercial programming.

I plan to phone in tomorrow morning with my pledge, and I am a bit embarrassed to admit that a few years have passed since my last donation. If it has been a few years for you, or if you have never donated, follow this link to the WGTE membership page.

I wake up under reduced home lighting to NPR's Morning Edition, and I occasionally tune in Car Talk, A Prairie Home Companion, and local classical programming on WGTE-FM. When I receive decent reception from Ann Arbor, I also tune in the BBC World Service on WUOM.

Even if you can only spare a few bucks, send what you can. Public radio is one of the few alternatives we have left to the monotony of corporate radio, excepting those stations available on satellite.
