Your Weekly Public Radio Quiz #4

My apologies for missing the quiz last week. We're back in business. This week's quiz takes us back in time a bit.

1. True or False? Public radio successfully met its goal in the 1980s of doubling the AQH audience in five years.

2. Based on On-Air Fundraising Partnership research in the 1990s, what was the number one reason listeners gave for NOT contributing to public radio?

a) Public radio is too liberal
b) Someone else will give
c) They could get better stuff from public television

3. Why is Car Talk's Doug Berman known as the Subway Fugitive?

Disclaimers: The answer to question 2 is based on national averages. Your mileage may vary. Past results do not necessarily predict future performance but ignoring them can cause audience loss. This quiz is for recreational purposes only. RadioSutton does not condone wagering anything of value on the answers. Use Your Weekly Public Radio Quiz at your own risk. Ask your doctor if a career in public radio is right for you.

All answers are wild guesses! Yay!!! :-)

True.

b) Someone else will give

3. Why is Car Talk's Doug Berman known as the Subway Fugitive?

He jumped the turnstiles at the Harvard Square subway "T stop" and now has to drive to work in Harvard Square (Dewey, Cheatum & Howe's office window looks down on "The Pit" next to the T stop's entrance) where parking is never less than $25 a day and never takes less than 30 minutes to find a garage with an empty spot. That poor, poor man. All to avoid paying a lousy 90 cents. :-)
