The American Federation of the Blind has a few stations on iTunes under the Radio selection in the News/Talk tab. They read the news, have discussion groups, read books, etc. When my Old Man was in his last month or so and could no longer read or watch TV, it was the only thing that kept him sane. I sent them a few bucks from his estate.

It's not like they could hear it anyway.

Shouldn't have hired a stutterer to deliver your headlines.

That was your first mistake right there.

I thought radio was television for the blind.

Yeah, I don't know what tried to happen in that headline, and I don't want to know, but it didn't happen

Aren't all radio stations for the blind???

No. In my massive collection of radios I have a few of these "special" radios like the ones used by the folks in TFA, each radio picking a single service aimed at a specific group, mostly foreigh language programming inthe NYC area.

The blind stations mostly read complete articles, stories, books, etc., thus differentiating their programming from that broadcast on regular stations aimed at a general audience. I like when they read articles from Playboy, for obvious ironic reasons.

So while most blind people are able to enjoy the same radio we do, their special blind stations are a horse of a different color, not that they'd know.

You're wrong. THIS is the youngest photo I could find of Amelia Earhart.

The CIA trained her at a young age in advanced hand to hand combat in case she was captured by the Japanese.

I mean, come on! It's so obvious! And shame on you, Farkers, for not pointing out that I didn't post this pic. Or you could have, you know, posted it yourself! Gawd, I hate you sometimes. Absolutely hate you.

Came to say this too. It is too bad that SCA/SCMO radios aren't more readily available, I honestly think that everyone could enjoy the programming.
