My trip to Cabrini University’s college radio station WYBF was a long-time coming.

Radio Station Visit #120 – KABF in Little Rock, Arkansas

When I arrived at community radio station KABF in Little Rock, Arkansas on the afternoon of October 7, 2016, I was embarking on my fifth radio station visit in a 24-hour period.
