Spring 2014 Fund Raising
On-Air Total: $190,628
Total Raised: $196,890*
*updated 9am Thursday, April 17
YPR extends a very big THANK YOU to all who participated in the success of our Spring on-air fund raising week. By Sunday evening, April 13, 1,521 pledges totaling $190,628 put us over our minimum goal in a down-to-the-wire finish. Thanks to some generous last-minute matching funds and a phenomenal response from our listeners, we raised more than $43,400 on Sunday alone, shattering all previous records for total amount raised on a single day. YPR also thanks the dozens of volunteers who answered phones and stuffed envelopes and the businesses and individuals who donated food and beverages throughout the week. YPR deeply appreciates the hard work of our volunteers and the generous support from our community of listeners that made our on-air fund raising week a success. If you have yet to get yourself a pint glass or t-shirt, or missed your opportunity to pledge during our on-air fund raiser, you can still pledge online in support of our Spring fund raising effort.

Pretty much all of us believe in our Constitutional Rights, but many would have trouble naming exactly what they are. And what happens when our rights conflict? Supreme court Justice Beth Baker’s job is to know our rights in-depth, and when they come in conflict, to make the call.

Thursdays at 6:30pm
For the first time, Paul Zarzyski’s most popular “lite” poems are collected together under one cover titled Steering With My Knees. From “Whale in my Wallet” to “Benny Reynolds,” “Tumbleweed Munchies” to “Long Sagebrush Drives,” nothing entertains and provokes, amuses and inspires, quite like the king of the poet lariati. In addition to a hand-picked selection of previously-published work, Steering with my Knees also includes more than thirty never-before-seen original poems.
