Support Your Local Public Radio Station
Some around town feel that it’s hip to dislike KCRW, but this LAist is a fan. It was the music programming that got me at first, but nowadays I’m sure that I listen to as much or more of the news and talk programs as I do the music. Plus, what with the internets and podcasting that all the kids are into these days, I can listen to any show any time I want.
There are plenty of other radio stations I listen to, but I get the most out of KCRW. Music recommendations, upcoming live shows, restaurant and cooking ideas and news programs that are actually informative are just some of the reasons I listen.
Because I get so much out of the station, I don’t have a problem when they have a pledge drive every six months. It’s weird, but I actually enjoy listening to the drive. From what I understand, most people who subscribe enjoy the pledge drive and those who don’t tend to be the complainers.
