Live and Local on KWTU: A Note About the Music

Apr 5, 2018

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who supported our Spring Fund Drive on KWTU last month. For me, it was more than just a wonderful opportunity to make the case for supporting Public Radio Tulsa; it was also a chance to play some of my favorite recordings for you on Classical 88.7.

Nothing comes close to public radio.

Public Radio Tulsa and NPR are like nothing else.  When you listen, you hear balanced, fact-based journalism.  You hear programs that nourish your mind.  You experience “driveway moments,” those bits of bliss when you just can’t miss one second of that great story.

Independent journalism and intelligent entertainment this good are worthy of our support.

Supporting Public Radio Has Never Been This Great! 

Wine Spectator magazine in your mailbox each month for donations beginning at $60!

Our newest mug: it’s beautiful, it’s bold, and it celebrates NPR’s award-winning All Things Considered!

All this, plus TWO Early-Bird Specials (EXPIRED!).        

YES! I would like to make my Spring 2018 Pledge to Public Radio Tulsa

Dear Friends of Public Radio Tulsa,               

We get a LOT of questions from listeners here at the station.  Everything from “How do I donate my car? (Easy!)” to “Did you know you’re off the air??? (Yep.)” to “I heard this one story this one time about this one guy…what was it?  (Ummm…)” 

Last spring, we decided we needed to do some asking.  We surveyed our newest donors, asking them about their favorite programs, when they listened, how long they had been listening, and more.  And we requested their comments.  Here’s what they said:

You Did It!
