A weekly half-hour radio show called One More Story plays in Omaha on the local NPR station, KIOS-FM, and across the state of Nebraska. One More Story is seeking more cds and tapes of adult stories to use on the show. If you'd be willing to send us yours, we'll give it a happy listening and will try to use the stories which suit out programming. We'd like to expand the territory some - making the show accessible to tellers who are not heard as often as others. Right now the show only plays to an audience of from 5 - 10 thousand a week, but we do advertise how to get your tapes & cds during the show. And we are looking for an underwriter to get the show on satellite so it can be picked up by other stations. You must sign a release form. It is important to everyone that you have permission to broadcast the stories that you send us, so if there are some on your tape or cd for which you do not have broadcast permission, please let us know which. If you have questions or concerns, send them to Nancy Duncan, at email address: Tapes & CDs should be mailed to One More Story, 1803 S. 58th St., Omaha, NE 68106. If you'd like to have a cassette copy of any show that uses a story by you, let me know also. 402-551-4532
