In 1898, China granted a 99-year lease to Great Britain for the areas across the harbor in the British controlled island of Hong Kong. But smack in the middle of that territory, known as Kowloon, was an enclave that wasn't included in the lease. A place that would, at least officially, still be controlled by the Chinese. It was a large fort, built decades earlier to put a check on British expansion. But it evolved into something very, very different.
The strength of public radio comes from the grassroots: From listener support, and local stations willing to take risks to create something new. At KALW, that means distinctive a local mix of local, national and global programming -- plus an innovation we all appreciate: The no-interruption membership campaign.
KALW's Fall Membership Campaign began with a goal of $325,000. Now, thanks to one listener at a time giving their generous support, we're down to just $1,000 to go. If you've helped us get this far -- THANK YOU.
