A Necessary Inconvenience

I like public radio. I like it a lot. But there’s one thing that I can’t stand about public radio: fund raising week. I know, without advertising, they don’t have much choice except to open up the phone lines and prod us into feeling guilty for listening without paying. The management at the radio station probably hates fund raising week as much as the public does, but it’s the nature of the game.

The radio station also fills up with volunteers to man the phones. To help make everyone’s week a little more pleasant, Southern Skies is donating coffee to WAMU, the NPR affiliate in Washington, DC. It might not make the fund drive pass any faster for me, but it might for them.
