Public radio, but not that public radio

We sent a special email this morning to MinnPost members, asking them to sign up for and distribute five or 10 of our new lawn signs that say “I listen to MPR®, but I read MinnPost.com.”

We already have a lot of takers, but David Porter, a longtime lawyer in South Minneapolis, had a problem. He wrote:  “But I listen to KFAI…”

And in a comment on our story about the lawn sign campaign, Bruce Adomeit wrote: “….Mark me down as preferring something that proclaims loyalty to the Minneapolis Public Schools’ jazz/education station and its North High School announcers at 88.5 on the dial:

I listen to KBEM-FM
but I read
www.minnpost.com

So, here you go. Two PDFs (KFAI | KBEM) that you can use to make your own signs, if you are a MinnPost.com reader who listens to public radio, but not that public radio.

You can also learn about all our free newsletter options.

    BOOM. I actually listen to KBEM more than I do KFAI, but I think I’m printing out both.

    This is why I like you. You are creative, witty, and intelligent.

    KAXE. I listen to community radio in northern Minnesota, KAXE on the Bemidji translator at 105.3 FM. And I read MinnPost.

    How about “I don’t listen to the radio, But I Read MinnPost”?
