WAMU Membership Campaign, Day 4...

All right, I've taken the moral high ground and pledged to support WAMU with lots of money. All I'm hearing on the radio today is, "blah, blah, blah, chatter, chatter." The campaign irritates me enough to find another place on the radio dial this week, (WTOP, anyone?). I guess WAMU wants to punish its listeners, and it does this four (count 'em!) times a year - four weeks of my life lost to blather on public radio.

I'm hoping that the marketing folks at WAMU will devise a gentler way to separate green from their listeners' wallets. There has to be a better way than the "Winter Membership Campaign."
