KUT is set to the first button on Dave’s radio. Sure, he listens to annoying, commercial-driven pop stations, but he makes time for thoughtful, member-supported radio.
He’s often bringing up NPR news stories in conversations, and not just to impress people – he’s genuinely interested in sharing thoughtful, left-leaning, non-mainstream, member-supported news.
He’s even known to listen to Eklektikos every now and again, too – he does a great (and creepy) impression of host John Aielli.
He’s not station member yet (doesn’t make enough money) but he’s only 10 years away from becoming a tote bag-carrying, bumper sticker-wearing NPR supporter.
