WKMS Kindle Giveaway Winners

leave a comment »

Congratulations to Rodney and Saundra Shinall, winners of our pre-fundraiser web Kindle giveaway, Autumn 2010.  Here are some kind words from the Shinalls:

We want to thank WKMS so very much for the wonderful Amazon Kindle. I don’t remember ever winning such a valuable prize.

We love WKMS and listen daily. We especially like all of the NPR news and talk programs. We try never to miss Car Talk on Saturday mornings. I could listen to those guys all day. Anything associated with Garrison Keillor is a class act; please keep him coming.

I most certainly will continue supporting WKMS as long as I am financially able to do so.

Again, thank you and all of the WKMS staff who do such a wonderful job, the service you provide is greatly appreciated and I look forward to many more years of listening.

Rodney and Saundra Shinall
