An interesting and enlightening story of amateur radio operator Chris Howard who has a new concept for radio–"Classic Book Radio"–programming consisting of the reading of public domain literature over the airwaves.  Chris already has a FCC license for a low-power FM station at 95.5 MHz.  All he lacks is money to buy the necessary equipment to get on the air.  As a former broadcaster, I can appreciate the challenge of getting a station on the air.  You need money and lots of time.  Contrary to what Chris envisions, he won’t be able to do the project alone.   None the less, I salute him for trying to add some quality programming to the broadcasting mix.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
