Our informal mission…

We’re not trying to get everybody to watch and listen to our show…  (Although we love the attention!) We just want enough people paying attention to set other people straight when they hear someone say that there’s nothing to do in Topeka. And we want to do everything we can to help out the small businesses and organizations that make our community unique.
