It’s the Big 4-0 for NPR & All Things Considered

Forty years ago today, NPR launched its first program, All Things Considered. They’re marking the occasion with a virtual birthday party on Facebook & Twitter. Follow @npr today for details. They’ve also posted a photo archive with a look at NPR over the last 40 years (check out picture #5 for a very young Bob Edwards). We at WFPL wish them many happy returns, and lots of cake!
