The 24 hour / 7 day per week service offered by GaRRS is voiced by volunteers from across the State of Georgia who bring a variety of backgrounds, experiences, ages and expertise to the more than 170 radio shows that air on GaRRS each month.

GaRRS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, limited access radio station founded in 1980 to serve Georgia’s blind, visually impaired and print disabled communities by broadcasting the printed word. Volunteers recrod and broadcast local and national newspapers, a wide variety of magazines and periodicals, and the best in recent fiction and non-fiction, read cover-to-cover and unabridged.

GaRRS is staffed by volunteers and professionals who offer 24-hour programming seven days a week to a listening audience that serves over 16,000 blind, visually and print-disabled Georgians of all ages.

In Georgia, more than 800,000 cases of blindness and visual impairment have been reported. As these numbers are increasing, the need to have access to the printed word has never been greater. With community support, GaRRS will be able to continue this unique broadcast service, lifting the barriers of isolation from the lives of Georgia’s blind and print-disabled citizens. GaRRS is supported by government grants, universities, foundations, corporate gifts and by general donations from listeners and individuals like you. If you wish to join our efforts in keeping Georgia’s blind, visually impaired and print disabled communities connected to the world of print, please consider making a contribution.
