There's nothing worse than sitting in traffic on a hot afternoon in Tucson, unless it's sitting in traffic ignorantly. One option to put your mind elsewhere: Tune your radio to 89.1 FM and distract yourself from the sun and bad drivers with good old National Public Radio. Offering everything from your basic local and world news to shows like Talk of the Nation
and Fresh Air
, this station makes it easy to be informed and entertained each and every weekday, wherever you are. And don't forget about the weekend--that's when they air Prairie Home Companion
, which is always good for a laugh, and This American Life
, which actually has been known to make people cry. Right there in traffic.
