Includes Morning Show episodes and Gary Eichten's Middays from the 80s!
Kim from Bloomington asks: I would like to know if the money given to MPR would also go to support shows like On Being? Or is that a separate entity since it's with APM?
Your membership contribution goes into MPR’s general operating budget
which supports our ability to bring you all of the programs you hear on MPR

This next question was an FAQ this year due to a record sell-out time for Rock The Garden: "I didn’t get tickets for Rock the Garden, but I’m a Sustainer!"
Yes it sure was - All of the tickets to Rock Garden sold out to Members of MPR and the Walker in record time...
We realize the interest in and response to Rock the Garden has grown, and we're grateful for that.
We have also received a lot of great feedback in response to the most recent RtG and
we are taking all of it into consideration as we begin to plan for next year’s event.

Next question for you, Nicole: "If I become a member of The Current, does my money go to News and Classical?"
Another good one - To provide any of our radio services, we draw on resources of the entire organization
This means that when a listener contributes to The Current
that contribution becomes part of the operating resources for all of MPR.
The support is not restricted to just The Current.
All of our services share space and staff. We also share support staff and services, including
engineering, marketing, operations, membership, finance and human resources.
Most members listen to more than one service, and many listen to everything
Our goal is to have a family of healthy, growing radio services that continue to be worthy of your support.
This next question is timely: "How is the member drive going?"
The Fall Member Drive is going really well
With 3 days left to go - we're looking to hear from...
about 4,118 listeners to reach our overall goal of 10,000 Members
One more down! 4117 to go...
And thanks so much to everyone who has already contributed
Not only during this drive - but throughout the year
Thanks to your generosity
I am constantly in awe of the generosity of our listeners
