I love it. I re-discovered it last year here in Columbus and joined as a supportive member. funny thing is that I was a news anchor there in the 80s as WOSU. I love NPR, the Amadeaus (sp?) deli at noon and All Things Considered.

I LOVE NPR and my nearby college classical music radio stations. All things considered is the best! I am a fan on facebook and get updates from them.

I am so glad I found someone to share my interests. :-D

I love NPR. Been listening to it off and on for a few years. Much more so for the past year.
When the programs get too depressing, I switch to a classical music station. :-)

AND PBS! Is anybody watching PBS?
I am a big fan of PBS even though we have Direct TV.
In Chicago, there are 2 PBS stations. I watch these 2 stations 99% of the times.

I love news programs from different countries around the world, commentaries and documentaries--both on NPR & PBS.
News programs on the mainstream stations are too narrow and focus only on the US and US interests shutting out the rest of the world.

And is anybody interested in foreign films?
I've been watching Spanish, Dutch, French, German, Swedish, Japanese films. lol. And Chinese. Even the Middle East.

I am enormored of Japanese films, most specifically Akira Kurosawa's films. :-D

I started renting foreign films about six years ago, 940 of them last time I checked, mostly European films from the end of WWII through the '70s but some others too. There is some really interesting and very different stuff out there.

Yes, I do like NPR. I used to work for a public community radio station in Toronto, I was a music DJ and social justice on air advocate there for 10 years.

Bakemom,
I cannot live without NPR. If I'm not listening to it on the radio, I'm listening to shows from it online. I am an addict.
I also discovered I can get CBC Ottawa on my radio and I'm finding shows online from the CBC to be good as well.
This American Life is my favorite NPR show. Ira has a very soothing voice.

I recently heard a story that National Public Radio had officially changed it's name to NPR.
