Okay, first let me say that I LOVE our listeners! I can't believe how many people shuffled through the snow flurries in Saint Paul to come by MPR's new headquarters for our 40th Anniversary open house. Tons and tons and tons - from longtime members to infants in strollers and everyone in between. Even though I've been up since 3:30 this morning, I'm totally amped and filled with a wonderful mix of joy and pride. I'm so proud of what we do at MPR every day, but if I had a vest the buttons would have burst right off because of our MEMBERS. We have the most loyal, active, engaged listeners in the country. And surely the most good-looking, strong and above-average.
So. Jeff Esworthy said he got a great quote from a guest today and wants to make t-shirts.
"Minnesota Public Radio Rules the World"
Though I don't think we're actually headed toward total world domination, I think I can safely say that MPR and its listeners rule!
