Testimonials

Even when I am in a motel where there are over 80 TV channels available, I spend most of my time watching the same PBS shows I receive at home on a simple antenna. Thus I prefer to take the money I would spend on satellite connection for my home, and donate it to KTWU. When one sees truly shining examples of a public good, like PBS, one feels compelled to support...
