While I find it nice to have "listener supported" Classical South Florida on the air, and I will ocassionally tune them in to hear what they are doing or I am stuck with a terrestrial radio, the truth is that in the car, I have three classical XM channels and a bunch of other XM channels I also listen to, and at home I have Beethoven Radio plus several hundred other sources (after all, this is the World Wide Web!).
I figured that if I were to contribute based on the amount of time I actually listen to WKCP proportional to the time I spend with other stations, streams, and channels and the amount I pay for them, it would be more of an insult than a gift, well under a dollar per month.
So, do I donate to a service I do not take advantage of because it seems like a nice thing to do, or do I accept that this is the third millennium and that I am no longer a consumer of second millennium limitations and just cling on to my hard earned money?
