“This is an excellent opportunity for people to dust off the musical instruments that have been sitting in their basements and put them to good use with very little effort.” WZBA PD DAN MICHAELS commented. “We feel as one of the few locally based radio stations in the area, we have a unique opportunity to highlight this important effort.”
