Thursday, 6 June 2013 | A Public Affair
Wow, what a day. A big shout-out to everyone whose generous donations made this hour possible! This is historic for A Public Affair. We are so grateful for all the support for this show, WORT and community radio!!
On Thursday, June 6th sub host Bob McChesney interviewed Ralph Nader about his new book, “Told You So: The Big Book of Weekly Columns”. As the show was a pledge drive show, both McChesney and Nader also challenged 9 listeners to pledge $100 – promising that they would each then pledge $100 each. When 9 pledgers were reached at halfway through the hour, they upped the odds to 18 listeners and $200 each. Suffice it to say that both McChesney and Nader pledged $200!
In addition to the exciting hour of pledges, Ralph Nader spoke about community organizing, answered questions about both gun control and taxation rates, and read a short paragraph from his recently released book. In addition, he discussed his latest movement to raise the minimum wage – Time for a Raise.
Once more, a thank-you to everyone who pledged! Remember the pledge drive runs until June 14th. you can still pledge online or call us again on A Public Affair.
