I believe the world should broadcast and receive public supported public radio.
I believe public radio balances both private radio and government radio by offering a third, public, voice. A voice for the public. A voice not faded or forgotten during the nine minute commercials or only after nine minutes of programming. A voice united and created by the local public, the national public and the international publics.
I believe all radio waves should not be entirely controlled by shock -n- awe, advertisers and month required listening fees.
I believe all radio waves to be free, but know services require fees.
I believe in supporting public radio services with donation for local or national or international pubic radio,
I believe the public remains a public with the help of public radio.
I believe the public should support public radio.
I know all my beliefs are not always the only beliefs. I know this because the voices of public radio have spoken many public beliefs to me.
Public Radio, This I Believe.
