Alpha Media - Lincoln

Musicians are always good, and so are people who can articulate agricultural perspectives to an urban audience. I am into organics and the environment, so authors in those areas are always welcome. I stay away from politics (enough of that going on), otherwise I'm open for nearly anything. I record shows from 9am CENTRAL to Noon CENTRAL Monday through Thursday.
