Supporting a station that supports

WTJX-FM of the US Virgin Islands was the first station to help me develop an NPR-oriented music program, then became the first to feature the syndicated show from the African American Public Radio Consortium. When I was invited to host their second pledge drive, it was my turn to give. It was a fruitful three days, with the added bonus of working with the station team face to face. Much learned, much gained.
