Yes, I have my morning alarm set to NPR and if I’m lucky I retain most of what I hear, though it is always in a half state of consciousness. The most frustrating thing though is that at 8:00 AM “The Takeaway” starts and they’re always giving the phone number to call in, but because of when I leave for work I never hear any of the phone calls. It’s possible it doesn’t exist at all, but I wouldn’t know unless I actively seek out to listen to the show.
