Joan Machlis is a loyal listener and supporter of KPLU. She decided to include KPLU as a beneficiary in her will:

To me, public radio is a national treasure. KPLU is my station. I find mediocrity all around me in news reporting, advertising and entertainment. When I turn on KPLU I find excellence: interesting, provocative stories, outstanding staff, and a great balance of entertainment."

"I want my legacy to include sustaining a pillar of democratic, non-commercial news and investigative reporting. KPLU's intelligence is not the only reason why I love them. They provide their content with good heart, dedication, humor and curiosity about the entire world."
