Listener Spotlight: Beth Graves

By: Joel Scott

Beth Graves of Lexington is one of Radio Eye’s newest listeners, having listened for only a couple of months.  Beth, 89, got interested in Radio Eye when friends started telling her about it last year.  She mainly listens to the Lexington Herald-Leader.  She has suffered from macular degeneration for roughly a year.
 
Beth raised three children - two girls and a boy.  She also worked for 11 years in United States Geological  Service offices in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Washington, D.C.  After raising her family, she worked for 15 years on the office staff of the University of Kentucky College of Nursing.
 
Prior to her vision declining, Beth did quite a lot of volunteering.  She helped at God’s Pantry and also at Central Christian Church in Lexington, where she was also a member of the choir for 27 years.  These days she likes to listen to books on tape, mainly historical novels and mysteries.

Listener Spotlight: John Stivers

By: Joel Scott
 
Fifty-three-year-old John Stivers, has been listening to Radio Eye since 2010.  John lives in Versailles, where he was born.  He also lived in Indiana for 13 years during his twenties and early thirties.  He was born with retinitis pigmentosa, a type of retinal dystrophy caused by defects either in the retinal pigment epithelium or the photoreceptors themselves.
 
Growing up, John worked on farms around Versailles.  He worked at a furniture store while he was in Indiana, and has also worked for the Woodford County School Board.
 
John learned about Radio Eye when he began attending alumni functions at Kentucky School for the Blind in Louisville after he returned from Indiana. He likes to listen to the local news and the grocery ads.  Aside from that, he just listens to whatever is on when he happens to be listening.
 
John also enjoys listening to books on tape, especially those about Kentucky history.  He has recently started a book on the history of Kentucky funeral homes.
 
About Radio Eye, John says “I think it’s a real good program.”
