For Ellen Neville, listening to KSMU is common practice while making art. She says the station helps her listen to stories because it "keeps my brain involved and engaged."
In the mornings, she frequently starts her day with NPR's Morning Edition, heard weekdays on KSMU.
"That kind of gets me started for the day and gets my brain going," Neville says.
Listening to the station is also a way for Neville to stay current during the week, or recharge on the weekends.
“Sundays are my days to reset and I love to listen to A Prairie Home Companion while I’m cooking and baking. Sundays are my KSMU day because I feel they have a great Sunday line up.”
