KUAR/KLRE in Little Rock, Ark., tells this sweet, good-news story about an elderly couple who helped fund the pubradio stations’ move to a new tower and transmitter site. Minnie and Layne Carson donated in honor of her sister, Mary Matthews, who was an avid newspaper reader until she lost her sight. “She took to her recliner and listening to KUAR,” Minnie Carson said. “She was up on everything, national and international,” Carson said, adding that NPR was a “lifesaver” for Matthews.”There is no doubt in my mind that it would have been a difficult time for her if it were not for KUAR.”
