I truly enjoy Abs Place. What can be done in order to have this program included in GPB's weekly
programming. I have nothing against the Classics (which dominate most of GPB's daily schedule), but I (after having relocated to Dublin, Ga. from Atlanta) find it refreshing to hear some truly Great Music coming out of Abs Place (WMUM-Macon 89.7fm) only to regret having to wait an entire week before I can enjoy hearing him again. I truly feel that Abs Place should be included in GPS's
weekly programming. What can be done to accomplish this?
