SLB is an invaluable community asset for the children and families of Pittsburgh! Their weekly radio show continues the tradition of quality family entertainment that is not only enjoyable by all members of the family, but also educational, information, and engaging. Not just that, SLB's community outreach programs help empower children, youth, teens, and adults by putting the power of media into their hands, letting them tell their own stories, the stories of their communities, and create connections to others. Pittsburgh wouldn't be the same without SLB.

SLB staff and leadership is really effective in working with youth, particularly teens. SLB empowers the youth it works with by providing them with the skills, training and equipment that they need to develop and create compelling audio narratives. SLB is great at amplifying the voice of youth in Pittsburgh.

I have listened to this radio show since it started, and watch it grow from a small hobby to a well organized and effective educational organization, focused especially on the children of the Pittsburgh region. They go out of their way to help boost other Pittsburgh organizations, and their excellent work in the schools both empowers and educates children.

I have been a faithful listener of SLB Radio's The Saturday Light Brigade since its inception. I don't call in very often (my cal-in name is "John in Lincoln Place"), usually only when one of the games has most of the listeners stumped and I think I know what the answer is. But I really enjoy just listening to the music, interviews, stories, and general chit-chat with other listeners. When SLB Radio moved from one radio station to another a few years back, I was afraid the quality of the programming would deteriorate. Thanks to the new station, however, the programming expanded from 2 hours to 6, allowing for more, and better, of everything. In an age when politically-oriented and hate-filled diatribes dominate the airwaves, it is important to have family-oriented shows such as The Saturday Light Brigade on the air and internet to bring a few calm, relaxing, fun-filled, and - yes, loving! - hours to the hectic week. This show is definitely worth keeping. Please donate to make sure it stays on the air.

Make the program last all weekend.

The Bergers have been supportive of many community endeavors throughout the years. Not only through their own show but also through promotion of worthwhile community events.

When our children were young, we discovered SLB radio while on our way to visit their grandparents. We loved the games and we made it a family competion to come up with the correct answers. We soon were looking forward to the amusing tunes and games each weekend. Finally someone decided to join in and call in our answers. On one occasion, our correct answer gave us tickets to a viewing of a movie hosted by SLB, at the Oaks theatre in Oakmont Pa. Everyone there were SLB winners and we all got to meet the host, Larry! This event was an opportune to introduce friends to SLB. When SLB could be connected to through the internet, I informed out of state, family members to tune in on Saturday mornings. SLB is now listened to, shared and enjoyed around the globe. It's great to hear the up and coming young talent of school children, while they learn about radio.

SLB is an outstanding community resource here in Pittsburgh. I've known Larry Berger, the show's producer and voice, for over 25 years, and have enjoyed listening to his varied, family-oriented show. Larry has hosted many open houses where he invites the community to come in to visit with him and the staaff as they produce on-air, live radio. I took our two young children in to see how radio is done about 15 years ago when SLB was originating from the campus of Chatham College (now University). Both kids enjoyed meeting Larry, and having breakfast goodies. I commend SLB and Larry and Rikki Berger for their commitment to excellence in family radio. Bob Kenneweg rdkenneweg@yahoo.com

I've been a listern of the Saturday Light Brigade for many years. I've also been at some off site broadcasts, such as the Allegheny County Music Festival at Hartwood Acres, the Storywalk, and National Adoption Day the Allegheny County Family Court. I have admired Larry Berger's ability to relate to people of all ages and engage them in conversation and games. Over the years, SLB Radio has expanded its education prgrams by engaging schools, scounting groups, and other organizations. Larry Berger and his team have successfully used radio broadcast to teach young people the value of the medium in having their thoughts and opinions heard. I consider SLB Radio to be one of the special assets of Pittsburgh.
