So while flipping through the radio dial yesterday I stumbled across our local NPR (public radio in the United States) station. They were in the middle of their spring pledge drive. The announcers smooth and low voices asking Mr. and Mrs. Moneybags to donate for all the wonderful programming they enjoy on NPR.
I do enjoy NPR from time to time, I like All Things Considered (the afternoon news and general interest program). While living in Minnesota, I was a fairly regular listener to Minnesota Public Radio. MPR had a good news station and a great indie music station, The Current. I enjoy the news stations much more than the classical or jazz stations of NPR. I feel that NPR goes much deeper into news stories and gives the listener a deeper understanding of the world's events.
So what say you? Do you listen to public radio? What is your opinion of public radio? Only for old people? Some people say public radio has a liberal bias, while others say it has a conservative bias. What is your opinion of public radio?
