Central Kentucky Radio Eye's non-profit radio service for the visually impaired and disabled, brings news, information, and entertainment to Kentuckians across the State, with only three paid staff members and hundreds of unpaid volunteers who do everything from stuffing envelopes to broadcasting! For the past three years, I have served as an on-air reader of books, magazine articles, newspapers, health reports, and even grocery store ads! I also act as their computer repair person, go-to man for hard-to-find replacement parts for our studios, furniture mover, and, yes, even envelope stuffer! I have also donated money and stationery supplies! I have worked harder at this job than in some in my own profession! I have enjoyed every minute of it, and, after having heard from a few of our listeners, I know that I am helping others with just my voice! Sometimes, the best jobs are the ones that don't pay anything at all, yet give so much to the community! I am very happy with my experience with CKRE, and hope to continue it for years to come!
