NPR Generation Listen: Join The Tribe

Mar 7, 2013

Were you a backseat baby? Were you strapped into your car seat and forced to listen to NPR in the 80's and 90's? If so, high fives to your smart parents.

If you weren't force-fed, how did you discover us? We want to know. It's high time we got to know you in an intentional and meaningful way.

Join us on a new on-ramp to NPR that is quietly gaining speed: Generation Listen.

Watch the week's news get the treatment it deserves when the NPR news quiz show Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! brings its star power to big screens near you. It's Carl Kasell reading limericks, celebrity guests answering oddball questions, faces made for radio, and an unapologetic focus on heckling the headlines and fawning over the week's infamous foibles.

Need we say more?

Get Your Public Radio Ball Cap!

Donate to the Equipment Fund between now and midnight.

In celebration of our 40th Anniversary, we are having a special one day on-air fund drive this Saturday to raise funds for much-needed equipment, like new audio control boards.

(The ones we have are so outdated it's hard to find and order new parts when something fails.)

Please consider making your pledge today, so we can get an early start on reaching our goal!
