ACB Radio Now On Your Phone
 
WASHINGTON, Nov. 26, 2013 — The American Council of the Blind (ACB) is proud to announce that its Internet radio service, ACB Radio, is now fully available by phone. 
 
"This is a fabulous way for anyone to listen to the great offerings on ACB Radio, anytime from just about anywhere, and does not require using a computer," says ACB president Kim Charlson. "We can now reach many more people who are blind who cannot afford to purchase costly computer equipment or who are not comfortable using the Internet, but who could greatly benefit from information and entertainment offered on any of ACB Radio's six channels."
 
Marlaina Lieberg, ACB second vice president and project director, says, "From blindness-related programming on Mainstream to old-time radio classics on Treasure Trove and lots of music and coverage of live events in between, there's something for everyone, and it's all at your fingertips by using your phone."
 
To listen to ACB Radio by phone, dial (231) 460-1047.  Note: long-distance phone charges may apply.
 
ACB Radio is a project of the American Council of the Blind.  On the air since 1999, the project is responsible for providing countless hours of relevant information and entertainment prepared for and presented by people who are blind.
