Silent Drive - Join Other TSPR Members Today!

The typical "on-air" portion of our spring campaign is usually scheduled for 8 days in March or April. You know the format: extended program interruptions for a full 6-8 days reminding our listeners and friends that their financial support is essential to the way TSPR operates.

Once again, we hope to reduce fundraising that interrupts programs by as much as possible and we're counting on your support to help us do it. Our promise is simple--we won't come back for a traditional "on-air" campaign this spring if we are able to reach our campaign goal of $47,000.
