Wayne Stutzer Devotes Airtime to Help Sun Sounds of Arizona Increase Awareness and to Field Investment Related Questions Geared Toward People Living With Disabilities
(Phoenix, AZ Ė December 16, 2007)† If you tune into The Smart Investor on KTAR FM 92.3 on Sunday, December 16 between 8-10 AM, itís likely youíll hear host Wayne Stutzer talking about a different kind of investment Valley residents should consider; an investment in Sun Sounds of Arizona.
ďThis is my way of helping Sun Sounds staff get the word out about what they do and a chance for me to educate listeners about a valuable community service that keeps people informed and engaged,Ē says Wayne who suggested and coordinated the joint venture.†
Wayne will also field financial related questions geared toward people living with disabilities.† He encourages you to forward your questions in advance to Sun Sounds Director of Development, David Noble via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If youíre remotely interested in financial news, then itís likely you know about investment specialist, Wayne Stutzer, who is a Financial Consultant and Senior Vice President of RBC Dain Rauscher and host of KTAR The Smart Investor,†KFNN Business for Breakfast and Stocks on Fox.†
In spite of his busy schedule, Wayne has decided to join the ranks of 500 Sun Sounds volunteers by providing tips on financial-based news features Sun Sounds can share with listeners and sharing his airtime to educate the public about Sun Sounds services.
Sun Sounds is a volunteer-based public radio station thatís been serving Arizona since 1979 and likely to benefit you or someone you know.† Itís like no other Arizona radio station.† First of all, you wonít hear its broadcast over the regular airwaves because the signal is transmitted through an FM sub-carrier, which is not available on most consumer radios.† Second, itís not about music, itís not about talk, itís about readingÖ to people who canít because of a disability or medical condition.
Most listeners started losing their vision late in life because of macular degeneration or diabetes, which is on the rise.† Others lost the ability to read print suddenly because of a stroke or an accident.† Some are blind, living with dyslexia or have difficulty handling printed materials because of cerebral palsy, ALS or arthritis, so every one knows someone who can benefit from Sun Sounds.
Volunteers read aloud for them, from 200+ publications like local and national newspapers, magazines, best-selling books and even grocery ads.† One of those readers is Ron Tang who says, ďI have probably gained more in volunteering here for the past 15 years than the service I have provided.Ē††
Many of Ronís volunteer colleagues feel the same way, which is why itís no surprise to them that the Arizona Republic recently included volunteering at Sun Sounds in its Top 60 Things to Tackle in Your 60s.
Of course, the listeners benefit as much, if not more than the volunteers.† ďI never knew this type of service existed until I became blindÖ. It is like having a coffee table with every publication you can think of right in front of you,Ē is just one of many testimonials Sun Sounds receives from listeners.
Sun Sounds serves 49,000 listeners on any given day but thatís only one in four eligible listeners.† Thatís due in part because many people donít know about Sun Sounds or donít think they qualify for this free community service.†
Wayne Stutzer is joining forces with Sun Sounds of Arizona in an effort to help change that.† You can too, by telling someone you know about Sun Sounds or by volunteering your time.†
You donít have to wait until your 60s to volunteer.† If you have a skill and passion for reading or you just want to get involved in helping a worthy community service continue its missionÖ while you have some funÖ then call Sun Sounds at 480-774-8300 or visit http://sunsounds.org today.
