Carl Munson, Hannahs Project Founder and Manager, said “The Access All Aerials project has surpassed all our expectations in offering a huge range of people with disabilities the chance to create their own radio shows. The most unlikely and passionate presenters have emerged allowing us to break broadcasting boundaries bringing personal and social benefits to people that society often denies a voice or creative expression. We’d love to give anyone challenged by disability the chance to broadcast to the world, wherever they are in the world. The internet and Hannahs have made that possible.”
