You Can Not Escape the Pledge Drive

My local public radio station is doing fundraising this week, and I am hoping that they will follow through on their threat. They keep telling us that it is only through the support of listeners like us that it is possible for them to play very boring classical music all day and that without continued support that the classical music might go away. I'm hoping that Talk of the Nation will replace the afternoon of boring classical music, so I am withholding my support.

Last night I had switched to using the Public Radio Tuner app on my iPhone to listen to a folk music program being broadcast in a different language. I couldn't really understand anything that the announcer was saying until I hear: jeden osiem siedem siedem…. That could only be one thing. Pledge drive.
