Radio Talking Book Service Introduces New Programming for Nebraska’s 150th Year
To celebrate Nebraska’s Sesquicentennial, a new weekly program on Radio Talking Book Network (www.RTBS.org) features volunteers reading from the new book by David Hendee entitled Nebraska, 150 Years Told Through 93 Counties. Each installment is about the history, people and landmarks of one of Nebraska’s counties. RTBN volunteers will also be reading excerpts from the Nebraska 150 list during the Bookshelf Hour: Monday-Friday at 1 p.m. Then, tune in for Community Conversations each Friday at noon for live interviews, and The Veteran’s Hour Saturday at 2 p.m., which features stories about Nebraska and Iowa veterans.
Radio Talking Book Service, Nebraska’s Audio Companion, was founded in 1974 and provides human-voiced print information for individuals with visual or physical disabilities that prevent them from reading printed material. 24/7 programming includes daily and weekly newspapers, magazines, and books, and pre-programed radios are provided to individuals or care facilities at NO cost. Please call or visit the website if someone you know would enjoy listening to RTBN. You may apply to become a volunteer reader, check out the program guide, or listen to RTBN via the website.
