Want to talk to me on the phone? You’ll have to donate to Louisville Public Media first

I’ve recently made one of the best purchases of my adult life.

I donated money to Louisville Public Media, the fine folks that bring us NPR programming, music and local news on WFPL News, Classical 90.5 and 91.9 WFPK. 

Louisville Public Media is holding its spring pledge drive through Friday to raise $600,000. This money helps the three stations give listeners like me the content that we love and need.

During the past year, I have become an NPR junkie. My radio is always on 89.3 WFPL, where I can listen to some of my favorite shows, including All Things Considered, Fresh Air with Terry Gross, Car Talk, This American Life and my favorite game show, Wait, Wait … Don’t Tell MeIf I’m not listening to these national shows, then I’m getting the latest news about the Louisville area from the team of WFPL local reporters. What’s not to like?

Here are just a few of the many reasons why you should consider making a pledge and becoming a member of Louisville Public Media:

  • For every donation that comes in through this year’s pledge drive, Green BEAN Delivery is donating two pounds of food to Dare to Care Food Bank.
  • WFPL broadcasts a great food program called The Splendid Table. It comes on at 11 a.m. on Sundays, which makes it the perfect soundtrack when I’m cooking brunch.
  • If you call today between 8 and 11 p.m. to make a pledge, you might get me on the line. The wonderful Louisville blogger Loueyville, aka Melissa Chipman, organized a group of folks to man the phones during the pledge drive.
