I also listen to comedy.

I could not name one NPR show, nor tell you where to find it on my radio dial.

i grew up listening to npr every day in the car from the time i was four years old. when i was 8 years old i won a contest at a school assembly by naming all of the OPEC countries from memory and my class got a pizza party.


I just had a conversation about this at a Christmas party. I mentioned that I had never listened to an NPR program in my life and they were all aghast.


I haven't, either.

i quit sports talk, i can't with them anymore. i will say Trump is making it difficult for me to enjoy NPR these days as well. They can't stop talking about him and i'm just over here waiting for a story about salmon fishing in the Snake River.

I'll listen to NPR when I drive. Other than pledge drive time, its pretty even keeled (sound wise, not politically), has no commercial breaks, and I can just set it and forget it.

While there is plenty of better stuff on the radio (like music), between the commercials, the DJ blather, and hopping around some one station to the next, its too much work for me.

Nowadays if I am listening to music in the car, its going to be running off Spotify plugged into the aux line.

I listened to NPR for a few years in college when I was delivering pizzas. It was either that or a shitty country station or a shitty classic rock station.

Haven't listened to any radio in several years. Always have my iPod in the car. When I still did, I was listening to the local public radio station (just people playing whatever music they wanted).

Trump is making enjoying any news based media difficult these days.

The soothing, nasal tones of Mike McGrath as he reassures you that yes, you can put that miniature potted lemon tree in a bay window in the winter? Those are apolitical.

The only time I used to listen to NPR was when I was driving all over Ohio for work, and sometimes that was the only station that could be heard. I remember one program/story on the payola scandal in radio. Dick Clark was very lucky to save his career. It was very interesting. I guess I should seek it out more.

You jest, but that sort of knowledge is powerful during heated arguments over tea at the club. Imagine the look on Thurston when you drop that nugget on him!
