Hi, I would like to know what is your song submission policy? I have a CD entitled " I Saw Two Rainbows In The Sky." How can I submit a free copy to your radio station? My CD is on iTunes. My most requested songs are " It's All About You" and "Sing Luther Sing." Please let me know if you can help me out.

I am currently a senior studying Travel, Leisure, and Event Planning at Bowling Green State University. As a project within of my classes, I, along with a group of others, are putting on a fundraising event in Toledo in mid April and was wondering if you would be able to advertise this event on your radio show!
If this is at all possible, please contact me at my email I provided.

Concerned Salon Professionals in Ohio about House Bill 189
Public Broadcasting Foundation Of Nw Ohio,
My name is Brenda Holsey, I am a licensed cosmetologist and a representative of the Ohio Association of Beauticians, Inc.
The Ohio Association of Beauticians, Inc. was chartered as a state association in 1934. Purposed to organize for educational advancement, strive for professionalism in performance, seek improved economic opportunities, and advocate social legislation and work for the welfare of our members and future cosmetologists, barbers, and all in the beauty industry. Our Association has fought for the rights of beauticians, in 1936, a dramatic incident demonstrated the need for an organization. At that time, a group of barbers tried pass an ordinance to stop beauticians from cutting hair, the Association stood against legislation, and we still stand united today.
· This is the position of the Ohio Association of Beauticians, Inc. We are an official voice of the Ohio salon licensed professionals of the cosmetology industry in seeking legislation beneficial to our professional interest.
· We are licensed Cosmetologists, Estheticians, Nails, Natural & Braids Stylists and all that encompasses the beauty industry.
This letter is an attempt to provide vital information to licensees practicing cosmetology related skills.
The Ohio House of Representatives is poised to vote very soon on HB 189, making
sweeping education reduction in all disciplines, eliminating a number of licenses,
and literally affecting every person in Ohio who visits salons.
One would think when a state agency is considering massive change, licensees
would be informed in advance. Such is not the current case.
An organization known as the Ohio Salon Association is sponsoring the legislation.
The OSA does not represent the majority - small single unit establishments.
The Ohio Salon Association founders are owners of corporate salons and national
chains trying to use legislation to serve their business models: the need for schools
to quickly pump out a high volume of basic, entry level, low-wage workers.
We want the education, we want the hours, and we want the option for advanced
licensure! We are thriving as is! Over 3,000 people in the industry submitted
opposition testimony to fight this big business bill. We don't want what the OSA is
Small businesses rely on schools to produce highly skilled graduates because
we (they)can't afford the built-in training infrastructure that corporate salons and
national chain salon owners have at their fingertips. This is a David and Goliath bill-
big business vs small business.
Licensees I’ve met feel it's an astounding conflict of interest that the designers of
this bill (major players in the Ohio market) are members of our state board and
govern our licensure, while pushing their self-serving agenda.
The legislation is at a point where only House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger can prevent
HB 189 from moving forward to a full house vote. He can be contacted at: 614 466 3506 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have contacted every State Representative and Senator at the State House in Columbus, about our concerns of HB 189, along with others Associations, Beauty and Barber Schools that are opposed.
