Radio Talking Book

Radio Talking Book is a free, closed-circuit news and information service that broadcasts 24 hours a day, seven days a week to thousands of subscribers throughout Minnesota and the nation.

We broadcast current newspapers, magazines and the latest best-selling books at the same time that they are available to the print-reading public.

Our programming is not available to the general public. Our broadcast signal can be received only on a special radio, which we lend to eligible listeners free of charge, via the Internet with a special password, or on channel 988 of Paul Bunyan Cable.

To obtain a password for listening on the web or to inquire about the Radio Talking Book, give us a call at 651-642-0885 or toll-free at 1-800-652-9000.
