No. We have
strict guidelines as to the suitability and appropriateness of
our guests. We approach many of our prospective hosts and guests after hearing
of their work from other sources. Others contact us
and if we approve, we extend an invitation for them to appear on
our station. However, we have also turned down many
applications - even though they offered to sponsor the station -
because they did not meet our qualification standards.
