We reached out to attendees at AccessAbility Fest 2012 to get their take on what the event means to them. Mariah Kilbourne, who is this years Ms. Wheelchair America, sent us this note:

HearSA Audio Library Showcases Presentations and Events Recorded in the San Antonio Area

Texas Public Radio celebrates a milestone this month. On November 7, 1982, KPAC signed on for the first time, broadcasting classical music 24 hours a day to San Antonio. Thanks to the vision and determination of Wilford Stapp, J.C. Stromberger, B.J. McClain and countless other heroes of classical music, the groundwork was laid for Texas Public Radio as it exists today, broadcasting NPR News and classical music programming to San Antonio and the Texas Hill Country.

You can listen to KSTX and KPAC via the "Listen Live" button at the top of the web page -- click the button and select which station you want, which will open the pop-up Flash player in a new window.

The "Now Playing" block on the right hand side of the page shows you what is on the air at that moment on each station (including KTXI, KTPR & KVHL) and also includes listen live links for each station. The iTunes and Windows links will open the stream in the associated players.

AccessAbility Fest 2012 was a fun- and information-filled event  on Sunday, October 28. More than 3,000 people (and zombies!) filled HemisFair Park. Even the Sith Shadow Council of Texas was on-hand, making children and adults smile and reach for their light sabers.
