I just joined KQED, the Bay Area's premier public radio station (yes, they do TV too). My "subscription" lapsed about a year ago and I had forgotten until their recent pledge drive.

If you're in the area and listen to KQED once in a while, consider doing the same--even if it's just $10. I'll be the first to admit that NPR and KQED aren't all that they could be, but they're so much better than the commercial alternatives. Heck, I probably listen to 12 hours worth of it every weekend.

Down here we have KCRW. That is one of the really nice things about Los Angeles.
