>Amigo loves radio. He listens to it in the car, through his headphones, in his bedroom, and even on the Internet. Give him the name of a major U.S. city, and he can probably tell you the name, call letters, and frequency of at least one radio station there. On the rare occasion when we travel, he enjoys finding stations with local flavor, not just the national syndicates. He enjoys accents, weather that differs from ours, and all kinds of local news items. When we made our marathon trip to Missouri a year ago, Amigo amused himself by listening to the broadcast of a local high school tournament basketball game.
My brother tapped into this fascination by giving Amigo six radio t-shirts. Here comes the fun part: only one shirt has the location of the station. Amigo will have to do some research of his own to find out where they are. I will print out the call letters or other information in Braille for him, and then he will sit down at the computer and Google each one. Who knows — maybe he’ll find some of them also broadcast online!
That would be nice, because Amigo announced that after he finds out where the stations are located, we’ll have to travel there and listen to them.
You know, that might just be a fun excuse to travel next summer.
Here they are: if you know any of these, feel free to drop a comment with the location and any other information you might have. I thank you, and so does Amigo.

This is sucha cool idea. I love to read the creative things families do to stay connected. We make new decorations for our tree every year. This year it was paper cranes…
We also draw names to buy one meaningful gift for each visitor that comes.
>Super thoughtful Uncle- way to go!
Also, did you see Favre all teary-eyed this weekend? And saying that playing so well makes it harder to decide? Of course you did… I thought of you.
