I'm so happy to be doing this again, we helped raised a few thousand dollars and had a great turnout from the community, looks like we're already on a great pace for this year's radio-athon. This year the radioathon will take place on Dec. 11th. At the bottom of the blog you will find some of the interviews from last year's radio-athon that we will be using throughout the day, many of them courtesy of John DeVries. Thanks, John
