NPR 2013 Wall Calendar artwork - October: Bill Carman. Bill says: "Turning on NPR in the morning is as important as turning on the lights. Most radio has become noise; it's about who can scream or play the loudest. I hate noise. So now I choose my own music and eavesdrop on people I admire by listening to NPR."

NPR 2013 Wall Calendar artwork - September: Kyle T. Webster. Kyle says: "In these times of rapid-fire communication and sound bites, I find it refreshing that NPR delivers moving personal stories, humorous essays, poetry, and other wonderful long-form pieces that truly shine. These aural treats have compelled me to stop whatever I am doing, sit down, and just listen. They transport me to the time and place that is being described."

This week, like man of you, we are highlighting just a few of the things we are thankful for. Topping the list, we are grateful for YOU - our listeners - 26 million per week, in fact. You are the reason we do what we do.
