KABF,
the community radio station started by ACORN and still going as a true alternative voice in Little Rock, is adding new programs through an underwriting agreement with the Central Arkansas Library System.

CALS announced:

The Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) is taking to the airwaves with a weekly radio show on KABF beginning on Friday, January 8, from noon-2 p.m. As part of an underwriting agreement with the community radio station, the show will feature a combination of Arkansas-related music and library-related news and interviews that are conducted by staff.

The Butler Center for Arkansas Studies, CALS' Arkansas history department, has an extensive collection of music by Arkansas musicians and about Arkansas. The Butler Center has also collected many oral histories, or stories of the lives of Arkansans. These audio files will be included in the programming, which is a way to promote a greater understanding and appreciation of Arkansas history, literature, art, and culture.
CALS Director Bobby Roberts said, "This new underwriting agreement will enable us to offer news of CALS programming, recordings of public appearances by authors and other speakers, and excerpts of oral histories and other historical materials in free, readily accessible ways. This will be of special benefit to people who are homebound or who have visual limitations."
