"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Subscribe to Public Radio

The project: Donate cash (aka "subscribe") to my local public radio station.

5 minutes

Why bother?
Public radio is my favored radio station at home and in the car. We listen to it for HOURS on end some days (usually Saturdays when our favorite programs are on). Public radio, while somewhat non-commercial (there are show sponsors, but the mentions are brief), depends upon subscribers.

Worth it?
Absolutely. I like the various view points and the variety of programs offered. And while we're growing increasingly strapped for cash (like so many of our friends and family), we'll consider this the cable bill we never see. (We dropped cable nearly a decade ago.)
