Theodore and Donald Boniface of Jeffersonville and Burlington were auspiciously introduced to one another by a mutual friend 17 years ago and have been together ever since. While Ted is primarily a VPR Classical listener, Don prefers waking up with VPR News. Together, they enjoy programs that have live audiences, such as Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me, A Prairie Home Companion, and From The Top.
Both say that the programming reflects the values and characteristics of Vermonters.
The picnic site is on Route 100, 1.7 miles south of Bridge Street in downtown Waitsfield. It is handicap accessible, well behaved dogs on leashes are welcome and cash is recommended for food vendors and t-shirt sales. We'll be selling the new VPR t-shirt, designed by Randolph 5th grader Mikael Luke-Currier, for just $10!
Two new programs are coming to VPR on weekday afternoons at 2 p.m. beginning August 4. Listen Monday through Thursday for The Takeaway with John Hockenberry, and on Fridays for Science Friday with Ira Flatow.
State officials have long encouraged young people to stay and work in Vermont. But still, many young Vermonters are choosing to leave the state to find opportunity elsewhere. To this end, the state launched a new jobs website last month, and the Vermont Strong Scholar Program seeks to reimburse tuition for Vermonters in some cases.

Did you know that if own a smart phone, you are also carrying an FM radio in your pocket?
Every smart phone manufactured today contains an FM chip, but unlike in Europe, most in the U.S. are not activated. Increasingly, the device that people use for connecting to the world is their smart phone. For that reason, NPR and APM are working with our friends in commercial radio and religious broadcasting to urge the major cell phone service providers to activate the FM chip that is already in all the mobile phones they sell.
