PRX: Freedom to Listen

Hi friend of PRX,

We hope you did your part today.

It is no small thing to be able to choose. In our corner of public media, PRX believes in open access by many free voices.

And true diversity of sound so you can listen to a whole range of audio: from the sure thing of the Kitchen Sisters to the tiny voices of elementary school kids; young street poets to classical music; jazz to the sound of history.

This is what audio democracy sounds like,
John
