Locally Made Monday - Radio For A Cause

"We help people with disabilities with getting a job in radio because usually people have to have a degree or be in college to work at a radio station. So we're trying to hire people with with disabilities where you don't need a degree or to be in college to be a part of something, and you can still make money from it, and you won't exactly be an intern either."

Many people have dreamed of starting their own radio station.

Tonight on Locally Made Monday we found a group who started a local online radio station, and they do it to help people with disabilities.

WFFT's Andrew Logsdon shows us Radio For A Cause- this week's Locally Made Monday.

John Graham and Jordain King started their podcast 'Everything and Anything' in the past year.

"Basically we talk about everything from how our project is going, to our
daily lives. Like how's work going, you know, like just like the daily things,
and our downfalls," Graham says.

That project, called Radio For A Cause, is part of a bigger picture.

"We help people with disabilities get a job in radio because usually people have to have a degree or be in college to work at a radio station. So we're trying to hire people with with disabilities where you don't need a degree or to be in college to be a part of something, and you can still make money from it, and you won't exactly be an intern either," King says.

Graham and King want other people to start their own podcasts under the 'Radio For A Cause' channel.

For now, the non-profit is looking for donations.

"Just generally speaking, once we raise the money for the station, then each individual that works with us will basically be able to create their own show, from start to finish," Graham says.

Graham says Sweetwater recently donated one thousand dollars.

If you want to help, there's a link on their web site.

"There's an extended link to our donation page where we offer a two thousand dollar sponsorship if you want to be in the name of our studios and fifteen hundred will get you underwriter pretty much for life," Graham says.

Graham and King say their podcast through Radio For A Cause helps give them a voice, and they want to help you get your voice on air too.

"If someone wants to start their own podcast, all they've got to do really is
go to radioforacause.org and just contact me," Graham says.

"We plan on hiring people with disabilities, but once we get our team,
essentially, I guess that's what we'll call it once we are a team, we would
work with other businesses, like for charities and things like that," King
says.
