It’s one thing to have a collection, but maintaining it is a whole different can of worms.
Trenton Museum decided to take a new and different approach to museum maintenance. With their Adopt an Artifact program, patrons got to adopt works of art, books and figurines from the collection.
Some 20 artifacts were restored and repaired– and now you can see them, any time from October, 2013 to February 9th.
Here’s a non-comprehensive list of the things that you can take a gander at:
1. Porcelain figures with names like “Crested Titmouse” and “Alaskan Native American Woman”
2. A Nautilus Shell Vase
3. Mid 19th century Trenton City Directories
4. Paintings like “Bronciculator” and “Farmer’s Tan”
Go check it out! And tell us what you think.
In past drives, we’ve put up posts about WPRB and how it has changed our lives.
But this year, Chester took it to a whole new level:
You pledged $1500 for TOTALLY WIRED.
So Chester got a mohawk on the air.
That’s what WPRB means to us.
We can’t do it without you.

If you donate to WPRB, you will literally OWN THE RADIO
RADIO RADIO RADIO RADIO RADIO THIS IS A RADIO
You can do anything you want with this radio
But we recommend that you listen to it
Vinyl casing, leather handle, and we are going to paint ‘WPRB’ on them. For you.
You also get a mug and coffee and a shirt and stickers and a beanie.
Also, you get our undying affection, because thank you.
“COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE ALSO A THERMOS COFFEE”
That could be you.
You could be amped and ready to go like that.
Because Small World Coffee in Princeton is the single best establishment ever, they have donated an incredible RADIO DESTRUCTOR ROAST that you can acquire by supporting WPRB. You get a full 1/2 pound.
But wait. IT GETS EVEN BETTER.
How will you drink this coffee?
Will you lick it off the floor?
Will you drink it from a dumb plastic coffee cup with one of those stupid patented hand-heat-shield things that have to warn you about the temperature of your coffee because we are a stupidly litigious society?
YOU WILL NOT.
Because you will have also donated your way towards a white WPRB thermos with the Radio Lightning design.
And we will love you forever. Thank you. Thank you thank you.
a beanie design that could be pressed up against your hairline
Top hats are the worst.
Fedoras are even worse than that.
But knit caps?
Knit caps will change your life.
1. They are knit and caps simultaneously, which is pretty impressive.
2. They will keep your head warm during the chilly nightmare that is the wintertime.
3. They will be covered in PRO-WPRB PROPAGANDA so that you can indoctrinate all of your friends.
Also, we will be eternally grateful for your support, which is another plus. PLEDGE! Please!
WPRB and the LAW both recommend that you wear T-Shirts pretty much any time that you go out in public.
DO NOT PANIC. This is a super difficult task but we have got you covered.
For 45$, you can support WPRB and put clothing on your back AND front appropriate for every single occasion.
Plus it has a RADIO TOWER OF BABEL on it.
Plus you get stickers.
Plus we will send you praise and thanks, because we will really appreciate it.
Pledge, please and so much thank you.
YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE ONLY GETTING ONE THING BUT IN FACT YOU ARE GETTING FOUR THINGS
You know what is better than a sticker?
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, which is why we are giving you FOUR OF THEM.
You can put these on your face.
You can put these on your neighbor’s face.
Your neighbor can put them on your face.
And they will stay there for a long time, because they are weather proof!
And you get to support our station, which is just about as good as it gets.
pledge.wprb.com, and thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
