PRX: Fight The Squeeze!

Hi friend of PRX,

Can you hear the squeals from the sequester threat? As stations consider doing more with less, PRX is still a bargain: we have not raised membership rates in TEN years.

A paid membership gets a station access to unlimited free (zero-point) shows plus tiers of content (check out your rate here). And, with more exclusive content and access to sure-fire hits like The Kitchen Sisters, StoryCorps, Radio Diaries and more…stations can create unique program offerings to enthrall listeners anytime.

Common sense!

Bob Elliott’s Birthday is March 26

Before Colbert and Stewart, a bunch of edgy comedians used absurdity to take on society, mass marketing and media.

Ray Goulding and Bob Elliott were masters. Bob’s birthday is March 26th. Celebrate with this great selection of shows from RadioArt and Larry Josephson.

The Loh Down on Science

March winds blow in a bevy of conundrums: why do beetles follow the Milky Way? How do quail mothers hide their Easter eggs? And while the cat’s away, where does she play?

Find out with The Loh Down on Science‘s daily dose of water-cooler factoids in under two minutes. New pieces for March are up.
