Hi Friends,

Back in February, I was invited to be a guest on the Champagne Sundays 
radio show with Lisa Smith.  We talked about several NFB issues 
including the Braille literacy crisis and employment stats as well as 
the "Sound in Sight" CD project of the Performing Arts Division and the 
Mary Anne Parks Performing Arts division Scholarship.

Lisa has invited me back this Sunday. This time she has also invited two 
other musicians from the "Sound in Sight" CD: Jazz pianist      Mike 
Markaverich from the Sarasota, Florida jazz scene and Alvin Suarez from 
the NYC Latino band Los Ciegos Del Barrio . Also joining us will be 
Performing Arts Division board member Dr. Mindy Jacobsen (NYC), the 
first blind woman ordained as a Jewish cantor. Los Ciegos Del Barrio 
recently released their  third CD and are generously giving us 25% of 
their Digg Station sales through the end of August. Visit:


This is a chance to hear cuts from the CD and meet the artists who are 
all, of course, blind. Below is the information on the show. Please pass 
it around.
