Spring 2014 Fund Raising
On-Air Total: $190,628
Total Raised: $195,130*
*updated 10:30am Wednesday, April 16
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.

w/ Chérie Newman
Thursdays at 6:30pm
In his journalistic memoir Blood Will Out: The True Story of a Murder, a Mystery, and a Masquerade, Walter Kirn tells how, in the summer of 1998, he set out on a peculiar, fateful errand: to personally deliver a crippled hunting dog from his home in Montana to the New York apartment of one Clark Rockefeller, a secretive young banker and art collector who had adopted the dog over the Internet. Thus began a fifteen-year relationship that drew Kirn deep into the fun-house world of an outlandish, eccentric son of privilege who ultimately would be unmasked as a brazen serial impostor, child kidnapper, and brutal murderer.
