I live in MN, found this team while going to send someone a Goodie! My car didn't know there WERE any other stations other than 91.1 KNOW, or the Current (89.3). Occasionally it finds KBEM (a public jazz station funded by the public schools).

Thank you all for the Welcome mat - I 'preciate it. I listed my NPR favorite programs on the What Is Your Favorite NPR Program topic line. So... another reason I love to listen to NPR is personal. I live in the outer Mongolia section of rural nowhere. However, I was very fortunate to have gotten to live in Boston for 11 years and in Manhattan for 6. While I was in Boston I became friends with a young musician/artist named David Greenberger, who also worked at The Duplex Nursing Home. In NYC I used to walk in Central Park every day and made friends with a 45 year old woman named Margo Adler who was about to have her first baby. My current home is way out on a mountain where the bus don't run, there ain't no cable, reception for the nearest NPR stations is dicey at best, and DSL is closer to being a favor than a service - but every once in a while I hear David's voice talking about a little-known music group, or Margo doing an offbeat news piece - and I literally get tears in my eyes. I love now & I love ago.

Hello, fellow NPR junkies! My name is Jen. I currently live in Stafford, VA (which is south of Washington D.C.) but I am a Pacific Northwest native. My NPR station is WAMU 88.5, and my favorite shows are the morning and evening Market Place. As for the dinner guest, I would say probably either Nina Totenburg of Carl Kassell. I think both would be really quite funny to listen to as they shared some of the things they have seen and heard in their time with the station.

As for other information - I am a fan of live theater, crocheting, reading, live music, photography, camping, dogs and cats, and rescue organizations.

Glad to be an NPR loser with all of you!!

Goals:

1. Get into the teens
2. Lose the Xs
3. Run a 5k
4. 20% reduction
5. 40% reduction
6. GGGOOOOAAAAAALLLLLL,

Actions reflect priorities.

Hi everyone! I'm Susi, and I'm an NPR addict! ;)

I listen to WBUR out of Boston, pretty much all day long. My husband also listens throughout the day, and we've noticed that a good 50% of our conversations now start with "so I heard this story on NPR..."

Also, podcasts of "Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me" get me through long runs.

If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how fast or how far. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run.

I am newly committed to SparkPeople, and it occurred to me that there had to be other NPR listeners out there...and voila! here you/s are.

I live in the Chicago area, so I listen to WBEZ at 91.5. For fav show, I have to give it up for my hometown folks at "Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me," although I harbor a soft spot for Terry Gross and I miss Dick Gordon--BEZ stopped carrinyg The Story a while back.

I found myself alluding to radio stories so much that I designated an acronym for it: IHASONPR for "I heard a story on NPR."

I started reading the DASH Diet plan, and I knew it was a good fit for me when the author recommended listening to NPR v. watching TV while exercising.

I am a mom to two HS daughters, and in grad school myself, for library and information science.

I started listening to NPR without even realizing it in the 90's when I worked the night shift at 800 Flowers - one night I found Afro Pop Worldwide and I was hooked. And then it was on the radio when I woke up. It's the one constant in my life. I wake up with it. I hear it in the car and podcasts save my life at work!

I am enjoying the freedom of retirement, finally. Now I won't have to wait for a vacation to be here. But...my habit was to catch NPR in the car. I need a new system for that. I loved listening in the car--no distractions.

Oh and I know exactly what you mean about judging the non-addicts. I try not to feel too superior after listening to NPR, but it is dificult. emoticon
Now with Spark I have become rather much of a snob at the checkout in the grocery store...judging what everyone else has in their cart. emoticon

I can't imagine life without NPR. I cannot socialize with out having those many sentences peppered throughout my conversations saying “I was listening to NPR...”. I don't always think everything I hear on NPR is 100% accurate or always takes a stand that I agree with, but I appreciate their approach 100% of the time. I like thoughtfulness and secular based news with as little sensationalism as possible. I also love facts and science. I honestly do not understand why people listen to news coverage that is backed by corporations and such. And what is it that Fox News does to attract viewers? I sometimes get very snotty and judgmental about people who don't love NPR and consider them stupid. I do try to overcome that on a daily basis. I have plenty of practice in my hometown of Redding, California. I love Redding, but wish it was more progressive, intellectual and liberal, so I try to bring it on when possible.

I also struggle with an emotional attachment to food that crosses over every known bit of good sense I have. I overeat and under exercise. And I put the PRO in procrastinator and still haven't gotten around to taking off my unhealthy weight and keeping it off.

I don't want to ever DIET again- I want to make lasting changes, even if it is a small step at a time.

I have cats, a wonderful scientist husband who works out of town, a daughter who is the jewel of my heart, a job that I am amazed I still have. I love audiobooks, quilting, quilt guild, and sleeping.

Favorite NPR shows are RadioLab, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, and World Café. There is only one NPR show that I avoid and that is Le Show.

Hope to sparkteam with you, with great success for us all, Raven

Hi! I've been a member of Spark for quite awhile but I just recently discovered this group. SO GREAT! I live in an area where there aren't many people I can talk to (unless the topic is whatever was on Fox News), so I am so happy to find this here.

I am the mom of 3 children. My 17 year old daughter is studying abroad in Belgium this year, so Christmas is a bit tough for me but I'm surviving! I have a 12 year old daughter who is autistic, but has so many other great personality traits that I hate to describe her that way. My son is 10.

I have lost almost 80 pounds and have become a runner because of Sparkpeople.

I love NPR and my local station!

Yes I am ready. I want to go to water aerobics in the daytime. there are awesome instructors. I love my instructor in the evening, but I like to mix it up. last summer was a bummer. I was sleeping day and night! I did not realize it was my new blood pressure medicine! It ran out and I called my doctor and his office did not renew it --twice! I did not sleep so much and finally realized it was the medicine! Since he changed that, I am OK. But I wasted most of last summer sleeping! A real BUMMER! Chris

Thank you for the Birthday Greeting! I have not been here very much-though I listen to NPR daily in the car. Soon I will be on summer vacation and I can visit more again.

Hi, I'm Jodee and I listen to NPR on KPBS San Diego.

My favorite program is This American Life. I can't tell you how many times I've hung out in my car after reaching my destination so I could finish a story..

I also love Car Talk, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, A Prairie Home Companion, Marketplace Money and BBC news. I can't think of a program that I don't enjoy.. It's all good!



Life's a song; let's sing from the heart!

Hi. I lived in San Francisco and when I moved back to Ireland (in 1995!) one of the things I missed most was KALW. Now I can listen whenever I want with my internet radio! Timing is not the best as it's 8 hours ahead of the US westcoast here. Fresh Air, Whad d'ya know, This American Life I especially like. Used to listen to As it happens from Canada on KALW but I think its on in the middle of the night for me now!

*What city do you call home?

I live in the woods far from any city! We're in the great wet PNW.

*What's your local NPR station?

KUOW, if local is 100 miles away. We don't actually have much radio reception here so I stream it on the internet.

Recently I've also started evaluating OPB (music) since I might want to stream that in our cafe. Then I could be a member of two stations. :D

*What's your favorite NPR show?

Probably To the Point and Marketplace. My favorite local show is Weekday. We're lucky to have a LOT of local programming.

*If you could have one of your favorite NPR personalities over for dinner, who would it be, and why?

Daniel Schorr. Unfortunately it's too late for that, but since this was fantasy I figured it was okay to invite him.

*Anything else you would like us to know about you?

I'm not as serious as my choices seem to indicate. I love all the fun shows too. My favorite fun guests are Sedaris (both of them, actually) and Rakoff.

But now I'm missing Wait, Wait! emoticon

Hi Melissa! So glad you joined us. Our team of NPR Addicts is really growing. I listen to North Country sometimes, but mostly Vermont 107.9. We really like listening to Saturday mornings while we are doing our routine around the house and outside. Our stable radio is always tuned in to NPR. Take care...
