PRX Sends Royal Gifts

Hi friend of PRX,

We were out shopping anyway, so why not pick up something special for the eventual heir or heiress to the throne?

Why not gift your favorite producer by listening to his or her story on PRX? Better yet, stations, license a few programs and make a producer smile when we pay a royalty next quarter! Some suggestions below and all over PRX, by the way.

PRX is on track to its most successful year ever in terms of licensed pieces. Thank YOU for that gift of support. If you are feeling especially Santa-like you can always contribute to PRX’s growth as we try to build the future of public media. Otherwise, treat yourself to some holiday listening and get ready for some amazing radio in the new year!

Rattle, rattle…
