The Jewish Federation of the Berkshires presents the program "What Is A Radio Reading Service and How Does it Differ From Public Radio," with Beverly Prentice, Coordinator of the Berkshire Talking Chronicle Radio Reading Service.  Open to the public at $3.  The Berkshire Talking Chronicle has provided free of charge radio reading services to visually-impaired and print-handicapped listeners in the Berkshires since 1984.  Offering programming 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, 'the Chronicle' focuses on broadcasting content not available elsewhere.  Local news programs are supplemented with readings from periodicals focusing on health, literature, shopping, and national happenings.
