The New Vrindaban Radio Programming Guide

Please accept my humble obesiances
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

Greetings from New Vrindaban Dham. This past Friday, our application for an FM airwave frequency was sent through to the mighty Federal Communications Commission, and within the next 1-2 months, we will find out if New Vrindaban Dham has been awarded its own FM radio station.

As we anticipate the final decision, I just wanted to unveil to you, the friends and well-wishers of Club 108, a early Programming Guide of possible programs we are planning to do for our FM station.

What we are seeking from you is your input to the Programming guide, i.e what additional programs you would like to see, and also we are seeking advice and hands-on help to get the station up-and-running, especially in terms of getting ourselves hooked up to the Internet, where devotees worldwide could share in our programming.

As always, your help and guidance is essential to our projects

Thank you very much for your time
your humble servant
Bhakta-Chris, Club 108, New Vrindaban Dham
