It's Saturday morning ... time to pay bills. In the mail are letters from both Minnesota Public Radio and Twin Cities Public Television. Both organizations want me to renew. Hmmm ... thought I renewed recently. Searched their letters in depth trying to find my renewal date. None to be found. I'm still getting both magazines; thus I'm obviously an active member.
I've been a member of both organizations for well over 25 years at the "standard" family level. Don't you find it annoying that you now receive so many solicitations from public radio and TV? I know everyone needs money; so do I! I do not regard either network as "non commercial" broadcasting anymore. I now tend to "trash" all their solicitations for more money as a new letter seems to arrive every month. The net result is I may end up being late some year with my actual renewal. Show me my renewal date!
