New Orleans, LA
WRBH 88.3 FM began as the dream of a local mathematician, Dr. Robert McClean. Dr. McClean was blind, but he had a vision: a reading radio station that would operate on the FM dial (rather than on sideband frequencies which require special radios to pick up the signal), with strong programming content that would change and improve the lives of blind and visually impaired persons who wanted to lead productive, fulfilling lives in their communities. He leased airtime from WWNO, then bought the 88.3 FM signal and rented space from the Lighthouse for the Blind facilities in New Orleans.
