Several years later, I now live in LA and listen to KCRW.com as much as I can. I love Jason Bentley in the mornings, Anne Litt when I am walking the dogs on the weekend, and Raul Campos just before I go to sleep.
So when the pledge drive happens twice a year, I head to Santa Monica College and answer phones as listeners pledge their support. My favorite is when an "Angel" pledges $365. Volunteers in the phone room all clap, and we ring bells.
And...if you love KCRW and love my boutique, listen during the drives as you can pledge to receive $75 Gift Certificates to ME & Blue.
