Carly Rae Jepsen has a hit with "Call Me Maybe," a sunny pop song. So NPR producer Brent Baughman cornered some NPR personalities and put together an NPR version of the song.

You can listen here to the "dramatic reading" of Call Me, Maybe.

I know you are right Kevin...the news business changed when they replaced newspeople with corporate bean counters. But I still hold onto my fantasies of what was.

@Noreen:

"most reporters I have known would gladly take your free gifts or your sponsorship and then treat you with as much disdain and distrust as everyone else."

This is pure gold. Love it!

"And in fairness, when I worked at newspapers, there was never any pressure to tone down a story for the sake of an advertiser."

Yes.......but newspapers are different now. The Philly Inquirer has been owned by corporate giants who could - not saying do or would do - but conceivably could attempt to influence coverage in some manner. And remember the recent controversies at the LA Times....

Good point PC. There's little real return on your PBS investment, beyond, perhaps, a t-shirt.

@Broadway, I guess that's it. 

The difference between the "not ads" on PBS and the ads on other networks just isn't enough that I feel I should donate money to PBS every year.
