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.
