This will be our third year broadcasting the GDUI events and other material from the summer convention. Our broadcasts include replay of the daily events and workshops, interviews with special guests of interest in the guide dog community, listener interaction through call-in and email and special reports from throughout the convention. Visit http://www.acbradio.org/world to listen.
We are looking forward to bringing the blind community another year of fantastic ACB Convention coverage! We thank you for listening.
Best wishes,
