The Georgia Radio Reading Service officially signed on the air today in 1980. happy 39 Garrs! Keep up the Great Work!
I'm really taking advantage of the Garrs Program Library. I couldn't hear some of the programs I wanted to listen to if it weren't for the Library. Because of the Library I can read a lot of books and I'm doing just that!
This is a special day for The Georgia Radio Reading Service. For we are celebrating our 38th Anniversary of broadcasting! We officially signed on the air on October 14th 1980. And look where we are now. We're going strong and getting stronger! Altho I am not an employee any more I'm still part of Garrs and I guess I always will be! Happy Anniversary Garrs! Let's keep it up!
Hello everyone. I just did a wonderful interview on Eye on Blindness about Echevarriatravel. I hope everyone enjoys it.
I miss you all at Garrs. I'm doing well, trying to stay busy and listening to Garrs even more. Since Garrs is a part of me now I say let's keep up the great work!
Even in an age when we have so much available to us by way of the internet, audio devi et cetera people still appreciate real books and magazines. And that's what Garrs is all about. The best reading in Books, Magazines and newspapers is their 24 hours a day, 365 a year, rain or shine, sleet or snow provided Mother Nature doesn't have anything to say about it. teett
You folks are angels in my book,..I am not blind, but near sighted and I love the soothing voice coming over my radio and telling me the news and such. Thank you very much.
