I Love Wyoming Public Radio

I Love Wyoming Public Radio week was February 7-14, 2017. It’s a project raising awareness for Wyoming Public Radio. Be a part of this week by considering what you love about WPR.

I Love Wyoming Public Radio week started September 7, 2014 to raise awareness for Wyoming Public Radio in Wyoming and was hugely successful. We received numerous testimonials and Proclamations, with more still coming! Most of these are proudly displayed below where you can read and listen. You can still be a big part of this initiative and help WPR. All it takes is a minute of your time. It's simple; just think what it is you appreciate about WPR and jot it down. You can record your thoughts, or you can mail them to us. Your testimonials can be short — usually one minute works well.

We will continue to make these testimonials available online and on-air as they come in. We will also refer to these testimonials as support material for grants and other instances where strong community engagement is needed to show WPR's value to Wyoming. This is very important to WPR. Granting organizations as well as state and federal entities want to know that their resources are being spent on a service that people value. This is where you come in. By making the testimonial you show that you value WPR.

David Shelles - Cheyenne WY

My name is David Shelles and I live here in Cheyenne, Wyoming. When I moved from Davenport, Iowa to Laramie, Wyoming in December of 2008, of course I had the privilege of driving Interstate 80 across Iowa and Nebraska.

On the second day of my trip, I crossed the border from Nebraska into Wyoming at Pinebluffs and of course I started messing with the radio and it stopped on 91.9 and I heard Pat Gabriel's voice and that's actually kind of when I knew I was back home.

My name is Gretchen Wheeler, this is Casper Wyoming. I probably really became addicted about four years ago. I listen to it every single morning coming to work and every single evening going home. I just love the special interest stories that they have on it, I love the little tidbits.

Josh: My name is Josh Anderson and I also grew up in Evanston.

Josh: It was probably about ten years ago, when I met you, you were always listening to public radio.

Susan: Specifically in the morning.  That's my routine.

Josh: Turn it on in the morning, make some coffee, that kind of thing. And I remember going, ugh, I can't stand public radio.

Susan: Why?

My name is Claire Dunne, I live in Worland Wyoming with my husband Richard Dunne, who’s also an NPR listener, and I’d like to tell you story of how we first found Wyoming Public Radio. We moved from a city to a farm in Manderson Wyoming in 1984 and for a year we couldn’t get any NPR reception.

My name is Emiline Ostlind, I’m from Big Horn Wyoming. I grew up in Wyoming but I’ve lived out of state a couple of times. I spent a little over a year in Washington D.C. and when I lived there I would stream Wyoming Public Radio online because I loved hearing the weather in Pinedale, and just little snippets of information, and underwriting statements from businesses I recognized.

This is Pete and this is Lynn Simpson.

Lynn: With Wyoming Public Radio we can participate as members of the world, as members of our nation. We can be informed; we have access, what is happening in our lives as Americans.

Pete: It isn’t shrill, it’s reasonable. And in a world of shrillness and sharpness and sound-bites, point is there’s language. There’s depth, there’s reason. This station, this connection, does not abandon reason or thoughtful consideration.

This is Pete and this is Lynn Simpson.
