Founded in 1980, GaRRS broadcast is provided by more than 200 volunteer readers from across Georgia who deliver approximately 150 different radio shows each month including cover-to-cover readings of magazines, newspapers, and books, population-specific programming (Seniors, Veterans and Hispanic/Latino News), public service announcements and information regarding community-support programs and activities. GaRRS programs are broadcast 7 days a week, 24 hours a day by way of special sub channel (SCA) radio receivers and a password protected audio streaming link from our website. Who Listens to GaRRS? GaRRS' listening audience is as diverse as its programming. Some listeners have been blind since birth while others lost their sight through illness, age or accident later in life. Still others have retained sufficient peripheral vision to remain physically active, but not enough to read. GaRRS' listeners also include senior citizens too weakened to read, people with palsy whose hands can no longer hold books, and the dyslexic.
