Hello Librivox!

I haven't been on the forum very much recently, but I am still enjoying all of your fine work.

I download stuff all of the time to air on our little radio station here in Columbus, Mississippi
which is 100%, 24x7 audio books, 99.9% from librivox.

We recently passed our 5 year anniversary from the date we started this project.
It took a couple of years to get everything together and get on the air.

I take this opportunity to invite anyone to read a station identifcation for
our station and send it to me by email. It should be of the form:

This is <your name> in <your place>
and you are listening to Classic Book Radio
WMFH-LP, 95.5, Columbus, Mississippi.

If you don't want to give your name or location, you can leave that top line
off. But we like hearing all of the different voices and accents.
I think it adds to the station to know where various accents come from.

Record it into an mp3 as you would for your librivox readings
and email it to me :

If you would like to hear our station, we have a streaming link on
our website at along with the daily schedule.

p.s. I grew up listening to Doug Brown reading on The Book Club on WOI FM from Ames, Iowa.

This sounds fun! I won't even suppress my natural accent for it like I usually do, haha.
Please give me feedback! I'm always trying to improve!

I just saw this after having been off the forums for a while. I sent a clip of myself reading the station identification, in case you still want it.

I admire your vision and all the work you've put into the radio station. That's quite an accomplishment.

In the eighties and nineties I was an announcer and deejay at West Coast commercial AM and FM radio stations from Portland to San Jose. If somebody had told me then there would be a 24-hour radio station broadcasting only free public domain audiobooks, and even the top-of-the-hour legal station ID's would be recorded independently by volunteers working at home, I'd have thought it was the funniest thing. Because it's so antithetical to the world I lived in, where everybody was getting paid for everything. (But not much in some cases.) But this was before open-source software and a lot of other things changed my thinking.

I am definitely sending you a station ID. Thanks for your service to your community and for extending the reach of the work we do at Librivox.

It's great when people who are helping distribute our readings in the spirit they are produced tell us about it. Keep up the good work :clap: :clap: :clap:
