Volunteers and Reads the News for Radio, In His Retirement.

by Charlie
(New Orleans, LA)

Here in my hometown, we have a radio station for the blind and print-handicapped. Volunteers read the local newspaper every morning of the week and taped magazine articles, books, and advertisements are played during the rest of the day. In the evenings, tapes of old radio shows are sometimes played.

I began volunteering by going in one day a week and recording something for an hour. Sometimes it was a children's book, sometimes an article or articles from magazines, and sometimes it was the TV listings.

After a while, I was asked to come on Monday mornings and read the paper (with someone else) from 7-9 a.m.

I find this to be very enjoyable as well as getting the paper read one day a week in this way.
