For Pamela Weiss, KSMU is the first thing she hears in the morning.

“It wakes me up,” she says.

And it’s often the last thing she listens to before bed. Pamela will even tune in overnights to the BBC if she’s up then. She finds many of the stories on KSMU engaging, and vividly recalls a news segment that transported her mind to North Africa.

“The words took you there, and you heard the birds, and you heard the streams, and you heard the rocks crunch under his [reporter’s] feet,” she said.
