If you haven't been to and donated to Planned Parenthood or The Trevor Project to download the 68 track compilation, it would mean a lot to me (and more so to the organizations and those who utilize them), if you did.

Here's a new article that was published this week about it.


In the last two weeks has been proud to add two new shows to our programming line up!

The other new show (which premiered last week) is Just Add Alcohol. Hosted by Ronnie Black, Just Add Alcohol is a "great backdrop to a drinking session, with friends or alone."
