Cool ways to listen!

By Diana Ross | Posted in Staff Blogs | 1 Comment

I just read a comment from a listener who uses a Roku device to listen to WBJC online, and I wondered how many of you out there have found creative new ways of listening to WBJC. I have this very same set-top device for watching Netflix or Amazon on demand via internet on my TV […]
