If it's happening in Athens, you'll probably hear about it on Conversations from Studio B, WOUB-AM's community talk program.
Conversations from Studio B is unique. It's not hosted by a regular radio "voice," but rather by volunteer hosts from the community. They bring their unique perspectives -- and their friends and visitors -- to WOUB's Studio B for lively conversations.
The talk may be about health, local government, the arts, area history or community events.
Tune in Sundays from noon - 2 p.m., weekdays at 9 a.m. or listen to selected shows from the archives on demand. For more information about Conversations from Studio B, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
