Here's a look ahead at this week's conversations on Sounds Good:
Monday, November 17:
A 30 year career Army nurse now consults with the VA to commemorate the service of Vietnam Veterans in communities across the nation. She's Colonel Lucretia McClenney who's back at Murray State for the Global Alumni Lecture Wednesday night - and we meet her on Sounds Good today.
NPR is subtly changing delivery times of stories and interviews, newscasts, and funding credits on Morning Edition starting next Monday. It will be barely noticeable, but it will move our Writers Almanac ten minutes later to 8:45 a.m. We'll be able to bring you StarDate at a new time, 5:30 a.m., in addition to its present time at 7:30 a.m. You'll hear Frank DeFord's weekly commentaries at 6:51 a.m. & 8:51 a.m. Wednesdays.
When you donate a vehicle to benefit WKMS, you actually turn your car into the community programming you love. Donate a vehicle and we'll use the proceeds to support your favorite programs like Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Sounds Good, Music From the Front Porch and all of the news and cultural programming you value. Your gift makes a difference at WKMS!
We've met our autumn fundraising goal, thanks to a flurry of calls in the middle of All Things Considered, September 30. Angel Beelzebub (a very good dog!) made the final call to meet our goal of $110,000 in community support. Thank you to everyone who pledged, to our sustainers, to our renewing friends, to new members, to businesses underwriting, to our phone volunteers, to restaurants who donated food! It takes a community to make this public radio station work and you came together once again.
Thanks also to Greater Paducah Sustainability - Recycle Now for donating one tree for every pledge to be planted in our region. We're still counting that number, but it's safe to say it's a massive forest. We've ended a full day early, so we'll celebrate by returning to our regular programming schedule, uninterrupted. Pat yourselves on the back for the great work you've done. Thank you.
Program Time Change: Starting Monday, NPR and American Public Media are partnering to bring you the Marketplace Morning Report at new times: 5:51 and 7:51, within Morning Edition. Same up-to-the-minute reporting, new times.
When you give to WKMS this fall, you nourish your public radio home and your environment. GPS Recycle NOW is partnering to donate one tree for every pledge we receive. Your tree will be planted in Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park so you can one day enjoy your favorite WKMS programs under a leafy canopy.
Make your gift today. Because you grow listening to stories from around the world on WKMS, AND you believe in leaving that world better than you found it.
Many thanks to Greater Paducah Sustainability - Recycle Now! and their commitment to the environment. And to you for making a difference!
