The Flowing Waters of Lake Jefferson

Saturday July 11, 2009: Falcon Ridge teaser

Welcome to the fragrance free, chemical free, member-funded, hydro-powered, volunteer-run studios of WJFF. I say chemical and fragrance free for I have a condition where I cannot process chemicals and am accommodated for these two hours by the management and staff to allow me to continue this two hour weekly shift.
