I moved to Louisville nearly five years ago. (Side note: I just realized that at this point I have lived in Casa Lou longer than I've lived in any one dwelling since I was a child. Huh. Wild.) Since that time I have listened to only two radio stations in the city: WFPK and WFPL.**
Louisville's Public Radio is one of my top ten favorite things about this city. Hell, I lived in NYC for five years, and I don't think their public radio is anywhere near as good. We're so damned lucky to have WFPL and WFPK (and I'm sure we're lucky to have WUOL; it's just not my thing). Waterfront Wednesdays, the whole news team at WFPL, Laura Shine (who doesn't have a HUGE girl-crush on Laura Shine?), and of course all the usual great NPR stuff.
The C-J recently did a good article about local public radio and the political scene. Check it out here.
Anyway, there is no way I could possibly pledge what I owe to Louisville Public Media, so I volunteered to answer phone during their fund drive. You should too. Or better yet, dig deep and pledge at 502-814-6565 or online.
**That statement is 99.99% accurate. Sometimes if Roommate and I are in the car and a Reds game is on, we'll listen to sports radio. And sometimes if I can't sleep, I listen to Coast-to-Coast with George Noory because, shit, I want to believe!
