Almost a year ago a perfect I LOVE Radio t-shirt and a funny clay radio arrived in a box from a young friend of Bob Crane’s. He had sent her an entrepreneur kit a few months previously but never expected to hear back. The shirt expresses why radio (all types) is great for Bob and millions of others. Nielsen (whose job it is to find out), recently announced “more people (higher numbers), listen to radio than watch TV or consume content on smartphones.”….. our staff picked the t-shirt graphic for this year’s cover over several other designs.

From Bob: “I love radio” is such a strong belief it caused me to think about why I feel this way. One clear minded morning it dawned on me that radio is just an electronic extension of what has been going on for thousands of years and it will continue for thousands more. Radio is oral history, it’s storytelling, it is the best way for most of us to receive information because we’re wired for it. A good radio show might have music, though provoking content and maybe a bit of comedy….probably like it has been for thousands of years.

The t-shirt and radio were made by a wonderful girl name Asia Bell…..maybe you’ve heard of her father…Art?

We are donating $1.00 from each t-shirt sale towards Asia Bell’s future to encourage her budding entrepreneurship.
