Get those rubies ready … Minnesota Radio Talking Book is celebrating its 40th anniversary.
Launched in 1969, Minnesota Radio Talking Book was the first broadcast publication reading service for the visually impaired. The majority of publications read are newspapers and popular magazines. Its managers believe about 7,500 people listen daily.
Recognizing this effort, Twin Cities Public Television produced a documentary, “On Air: 40 Years of the Radio Talking Book.” The program has aired and will continue to air through the year. It is also available from Minnesota Radio Talking Book.
