upward arrow Usually we can predict which stories or topics will really resonate with listeners and web visitors -- but sometimes it's a complete surprise when a story gets a disproportionately large number of online views.  


We had a couple of surprise hits this week: Linton Weeks' foray into predicting the future of winter, and our own Susan Shannon's interview with runner Billy Mills. Give them a read -- it seems everyone else has!

Photo submissions may include images from the storms themselves, the aftermath or recovery. Selected photos will be exhibited at Leadership Square in downtown Oklahoma City during the month of May 2014. See the guidelines for submission and more information. The deadline to submit photos is April 18.

Spring Membership Drive: Strength in Numbers
tiles with sequential numbers KGOU's community of listeners and web visitors is growing! There's strength in numbers -- in the number of people who use KGOU's service over the airwaves or online, and in the number who support the service financially.

Our spring membership drive is coming up. That's our semi-annual celebration of all that KGOU is, and what it can become with community support. If it's time to begin or renew your membership, you can do so online.

"Strength in Numbers" is all about community -- a community of listeners and news consumers working together to make KGOU financially strong!

Changing Lives Of Women: Women and Wealth

And at the basic household level, women have enormous influence over how money is saved and spent.

As part of the Changing Lives of Women series, NPR looks at "Women and Wealth" a Morning Edition series beginning Friday, March 28 through the three weeks leading up to tax day, April 15. NPR's popular Tumblr app She Works: Note to Self (named one of Time's 30 Best Tumblrs in 2013) has launched a new theme: Her Money, featuring prominent women giving their best advice.
