Listening to MPR

September 10, 2009 - Cindy Votruba
I’ve slowly become a fan of Minnesota Public Radio. Guess someone’s influence is rubbing off on me. Or maybe it’s the radio station Ross has on when I come to his place on Saturdays. Took long enough I’m sure.

Now I find myself getting CDs of Click and Clack’s “Car Talk” from the library and listening to them whenever I’m driving. It’s hilarious. As is “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me.” When I was at the State Fair last Thursday, I debated on getting a CD of “Wait, Wait.” I got an 89.3 The Current t-shirt instead.

But it’s taking a while to warm up to “This American Life.” Some of the stories I’ll listen to. Some I’ll take a pass on.

As most of you know, Garrison Keillor had a minor stroke, but he promises to come back for another season in a couple of weeks. I’m also finding myself enjoying the different characters, stories and songs during “A Prairie Home Companion.” Heck, I even was at the 35th anniversary celebration in Avon this past July 4. At this time last year, I probably would’ve never considered traveling more than two hours to listen to a live show, let alone tune my radio to MPR.
