Pre-production of our weekly talk-radio show -- “It Could Be You” -- began in July of 2011 with broadcast training for our volunteers and a lot of help from the folks at KABF.

We did our first live broadcast at noon on October 12, 2011 and continue to fill the airwaves live from 12 noon to 1pm every Wednesday on KABF-88.3 Little Rock.

Our overarching mission in producing the show is to develop a cooperative sense of community (rather than take an adversarial approach) among all members of the community with a special focus on advocating for common sense practicality on sex-offender issues.

We welcome the opportunity to interview representatives of victim's advocacy groups, attorneys, public officials,  those who are on the registry and others who have a personal story to tell or useful information to share about community programs and events.

Our debut broadcast included a guest appearance by MiChelle Moore, a volunteer with the Little Rock organization Compassion Works for All.

MiChelle shared information about a meeting she organized in Little Rock for the Washington D.C.-based Justice Policy Institute (JPI) addressing the 'life without parole' issue in Arkansas.

Our October 19th broadcast featured an interview with Lewis-Burnett Employment Finders Inc. and a spirited conversation about employment, skill development the assistance provided with job-seeking by the agency, which specialized in finding work for registered sex offenders and other felons who often have difficulty securing gainful employment.

Our October 26th show featured a dynamic interview with Jeff Rosenzweig (pictured at right).
