NPR Staff Celebrate The Big 4-0

Originally published on November 14, 2012 11:36 am

Whew, it's been such a fun day at NPR.

The staff showed up wearing their "I <3 NPR" tees. The Pleasant Pops truck came to the front of our DC offices just in time for a little mid-day treat. ATC produced a great show, just as it has done daily for the last 40 years. Today's show featured special remembrances from the past hosts.

We are especially thrilled with the birthday wishes on Twitter at #happybdaynpr, on NPR's Facebook page and elsewhere.

So, thanks for coming to our party. Without you, public radio's loyal listeners, we'd just be talking to ourselves.

Enjoy a glimpse of today's fun....
