Reason #22: The Swag
There’s an innocuous wooden door down a back hallway at WNIJ’s headquarters in DeKalb – and behind
that door? The treasures of public radio. No, we aren’t holding Ira Glass and Sylvia Poggioli against their will. It’s a room full of t-shirts, mugs, tote bags, book lights, socks – all of the things that help listeners and WNIJ feel a little more connected to each other. Yes, it’s the Inventory Closet – a very dry (but accurate) term for the place where we squirrel away the swag between membership campaigns. You can’t buy this stuff in stores, but we are always happy to get it into the hands of listeners!
