It’s pledge week here in Oregon. I’ll be answering phones for Oregon Public Broadcasting Radio tomorrow, Thur Feb 5 from 6:30AM – 9:30AM. Call me. 503-245-2345 or toll-free 800-245-2346.OPB gets no funds from the state. In fact, 63% of OPB’s budget comes from members “like you and me.” Remember that big 200 million dollar gift Mrs. Joan Kroc gave to NPR? That went to NPR, not OPB. So forget it. OPB needs you. Don’t have a spare million bucks? That’s okay. Basic membership starts at $35, any amounts accepted gratefully.
Before you get all snippy about pledge week begging 3x a year, consider this: it beats hearing every 50 minutes that you have a friend in the diamond business.
