All things considered
Live NPR in Bangalore? It was a dream come true. A few weeks ago, we were at a carnival in the building and came across a satellite radio service called WorldSpace. NPR was one of the stations on their list, which instantly had Mona and me sold on the service.
After we signed up, we realized that we don't have a decent music system. So we went a bought a new system. Installation of the receiver was a bit tricky but with help from the electrician in our building, the WorldSpace technicians were able to get it installed with a minimum amount of damage. But now as we sit back and listen to Fresh Air or Talk of the Nation, it all feels worth it. A bit strange to listen to the Morning Edition in the evening, but heck - we feel connected!
