Today is the day to consider a gift to WRVO.

The odd thing about public radio is that you don't (technically) have to pay for it. You have to pay for a lot of things: your internet and cable bill, your hobbies, or a night out on the town -- but you don't get a monthly bill from WRVO.

Not unless you ask for one!

"I listen to NPR because I trust their reporters and hosts to provide me with accurate facts in a non-biased context. We can't expect to solve our problems if we can't first come to a consensus about the facts."

Station Manager Bill Drake has been in this business for a while. He came to us from Northern Public Radio (WNIU and WNIJ) in DeKalb, Illinois.

The idea of cancer can make many of us uncomfortable, and with that discomfort can come uncertainty, and fears about our own mortality. But when a friend or relative is facing a diagnosis of cancer, that's when they need the most understanding and support.

This week on “Take Care,” Dr. Mindy Greenstein, a cancer survivor herself, gives some advice on how to talk to someone who has cancer. Greenstein is a clinical psychologist, psycho-oncologist, and a consultant in the Department of Psychiatry at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. She's also the author of the book “The House on Crash Corner and Other Unavoidable Calamities.”

It's time to think fall -- and with fall comes WRVO's annual fall fundraiser. Get your donation out of the way, and contribute to our member pool, before our fundraiser starts.

Why donate to WRVO?

Because of the ideas and information you hear each time to tune to WRVO.

Because of the moments you find yourself sitting in the car, waiting for a story to finish.

For all the times you say, "I was listening to WRVO and I heard that..."
