WRKF Marks My Day

Sep 9, 2014

  

Debra Salvadras grew up in Brusly, La and now lives in Port Allen, La where she works for Enterprise Products. She began listening to WRKF for economic news during the great recession, but slowly found herself listening more and more.  

Now, her day is filled with WRKF. From Morning Edition to All Things Considered, her radio is always playing either in her car or her office. 

After she made the decision to become a sustaining member, she admits it's much easier now supporting the station she loves. Of course, winning a trip to New York to see Radiolab didn't hurt either.

WRKF Helps Me Discover New Music

You know, sometimes I'll get in my car with someone, and I'll switch on the radio and go straight for the nearest public radio station and whoever I'm in the car with, they'll say something like "no, I want to listen to music!"

And that's just weird to me! Because I have found out about so much great music on NPR, on shows like Morning Edition or All Things Considered.

WRKF Lets Me Tell More of the Story

Sue Lincoln has spent much of the last two decades as a reporter for radio and television. And she's put in many hours covering the capitol. 

Her expertise covering the statehouse makes her a valuable asset to WRKF and our listeners during the legislative session. 

"It’s often said that Louisiana has two sports: football and politics. And we watch both avidly," Sue says. "Louisiana’s politics are known to be different, wonky, if you will, to the rest of the U.S. But they’re endlessly fascinating."

My Pet Listens to WRKF

WRKF has a diverse listenership.

There is a dog who curls up next to the radio for the BBC World Service overnight, and another who prefers to listen to WRKF in the afternoon while lounging in the pool.

There are cats who purr at Elizabeth Eads hosting All Things Considered; a bird that sings the Weekend Edition theme song; a turtle and a lizard who crawl up to an iPad to see environmental news with the WRKF app.

All of them are well-informed members of the animal kingdom because of all that public radio listening.

And they will be drinking from the "I Heart NPR" bowl their families receive as a thank you for their monthly contribution to WRKF.
