If you had to prepare a fancy meal for special friends, what would you make?
I would make them spaghetti with garlic bread. One of the only things I know how to cook.

It shows me how words and communication can hold a great amount of weight.

Your support is greatly appreciated by the KDCR staff! Because of your support, I can learn more about radio and receive substantial experience that will help me acquire a job in the communication field! I owe a lot of the educational value of my college experience to you.
