A bit of disclosure is probably necessary: Mrs. MBR used to be on the board for WYOU. Still, it's a great cause and it keeps an outlet for public access to television on the air. So, get thee to The Nottingham Co-op on Saturday night, donate some money, drink some beer, and eat some food. Who knows, you might just get the itch to video tape yourself at a White House State Dinner and want to take advantage of WYOU's programming to make yourself famous.
