The Morning News - Radio Free Marfa: "The next host arrives. His show, it turns out, is, a burned CD copy of the audio portion of the liberal television news show Democracy Now. Though legally blind for thirty years, the man burns the CD at home every day and %u2013 every day %u2013 rides his bike to the studio to play it on the air. And, since Radio Free Marfa is the sole receivable radio station in the area, his show is the only news anyone can get without a satellite (there%u2019s no TV either). Unfortunately, he can only play an hour of the two-hour show because of the limitations of his CD burner. Someday, he tells me, he hopes to get a DVD burner so he can bring in the whole show.
