Join WWNO as we present a month of holiday programming! This week we celebrate Hanukkah with Candles Burning Brightly(airing Tuesday at 8 p.m.), where hosts Mindy Ratner and Bill Morelock offer a program which explores the customs and music of the holiday, and Hanukkah Lights (airing Friday at 8 p.m.), hosted by Murray Horwitz and Susan Stamberg, where five authors explore Hanukkah traditions in original stories.
The holiday spirit continues through December with these other great shows:

"I grew up by a creek, south of Harrisburg, PA, where I never imagined what the outside of my community looked like. I started listening to NPR when I was in high school, and it connected me to a world that I felt out of touch with but wanted to know more about."

"I once missed lunch due to NPR. In the time I had driven to a cafe, I got completely hooked on a story and did not want to get out of my car. Before I knew it, my lunch was over, and I concluded that NPR was more filling than the most tempting picnic fare."
It's on! Men vs Women Thursday. And, as of now, the women are in the lead. In the left corner, representing the men: General Manager Paul Maassen. In the right corner, representing the women, Phyllis Jordan!

A pack of our delightful volunteers, from this past Saturday.
Gratitude! That's what we at WWNO feel at the conclusion of our Fall Membership Drive, which took place from Oct. 19-26. With the support of over 1000 donors in the last ten days, not to mention many others who gave to our Lagniappe Fund earlier in October, we have had a very successful Fall Drive. We at the station were struck by the high number of new and returning members and by the many enthusiastic comments that donors made online or on the phones, voicing support for the new schedule of programs on 89.9 and for 24-hour classical music on WWNO2.

It's fall y'all! No tricks here, just treats: check out these NPR-themed stencils to inspire your pumpkin carving.
If you use these templates to carve a pumpkin or if public radio otherwise inspires your Halloween celebrations, email a picture to email@example.com. We'll post the collection here and on our Facebook page on Halloween.
NPR’s “Morning Edition” has one of the most peculiar formats of any morning show on radio or television: it’s split between the East Coast, with the co-host Steve Inskeep in Washington, and the West, with Renee Montagne. The director cues Ms. Montagne through a videoconferencing system, and the co-hosts routinely add what they call “splits” to their scripts, so that they share the responsibility for introductions and interviews. “We are functionally sitting next to one another,” Ms. Montagne said, yet by staying on separate coasts, they are reflecting the audience’s geographic diversity.
CULVER CITY, Calif. - Fifteen minutes before "Morning Edition" is beamed to radios across the country, Renee Montagne is ready to record her one-minute introduction. To cue her, the director points his index finger. "Good morning. It was the president's turn to court Latino voters..." And she's off.
