Back at the end of the swinging sixties, we had a groovy idea — to expand people’s minds to the breaking point.

Do you remember when TV and radio were young?

Do you remember the days when radio and television could be anything?

You know…fill the minds of children to the brim with exciting ways to connect with numbers and literacy…expose whole generations to wonderful new worlds of music, theatre and the arts…bring incredibly diverse cultures right into the living rooms of millions of homes…and deliver truly unbiased news programs free from commercial or political influence.

Public television and radio brought that groovy idea to life.

And you brought that idea to life, too…through your generous and frequent gifts to Illinois Public Media.

You have been a media pioneer for many years, my friend. Thank you!

Keep the idea alive…forever.
