Hey..NPR listeners

Is your local affiliate doing it's pledge drive right now?

If yes, have you heard Alec Baldwin? Do you think he sounds sooooo creepy?

  • hoohoohoooo! I truly felt like I got my reward when I stayed with NPR throughout the pledge drive - after four or five days of it (and YES I pledged!), I FINALLY got to hear Ira Glass's pitch! I had been waiting and hoping I would be in the car when they aired it - his pledge drive pleas are always hilarious! (Remember when he called up the cable co. and asked if he could decide for himself how much was fair to pay, like you do with public radio?)

    Anyway, to answer your actual question, Ira's talk with Alec Baldwin was SUPER FUNNY! And then later I heard Alec's "levels of giving" bit, and that had me rolling even more! I LOVED IT!

    Did he sound creepy? ...well yeah, maybe a bit. But I idenify Alec Baldwin's voice with Red October and The Royal Tennenbaums, so I guess I can't really objectively assess its creepiness.

    Fun question! :o)

  • Haven't had a chance to listen today, so not sure if they are or not. They should totally get him to spoof his SNL NPR parody, LOL.

  • OK, here is the REAL question...


    HAVE YOU PLEDGED YET?


    *8grin**


    We are running several Alec Baldwin spots in our drive right now and they crack me up. Especially the one in which he says "don't pledge."


    But what we haven't run yet... and I hope we do run when we wrap up pledge tomorrow... is the NPR Song spot. Here's a link to the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r63Sou9xU9E
