Donation Week for Favorite Station?

Asked by jarogers80 (27 points ) March 20th, 2014

My favorite public radio station has been taking pledges all week and is constantly asking for donations. When this happens to you, do you:
A. Turn the channel.
B. Flip back and forth, hoping to hear one of your programs in the middle of all the demands/requests for support.
C. Donate.

I switch to the other public radio station in the market.

flip over to Christian Hate Radio (AFR/AFN) and listen to them prattle on until I can no longer stand the hypocrisy then I switch back.

BTW I do contribute to my local Public Access Channel, I just don’t listen to their pleas.

@Coloma WTF!!! you don’t listen to public radio. another childhood illusion shattered

We listen to 4 commercial-free stations – two in New York City and two in Philadelphia. I know he consistently pays his membership to the one NYC music station that is NOT NPR affiliated, but the other 3 we haven’t contributed to in the last 5 years. I used to donate to the one Philly music station, but had to stop. I keep meaning to start again but never remember because I’m driving. Whether or not I listen to their pledge pitches depends on what program is on and how interested I am in it. I might flip to the other station or play what’s in the CD player.

I donate as much as is financially feasible. Community events and drives are my favorite charities.
