The Kansas Audio-Reader Network has launched a series of Facebook Live fundraisers, designed to replace "For Your Ears Only," the radio reading service's annual audio sale at the Douglas County Fairgrounds.  On Thursday night, Audio-Reader's 2nd Facebook Live sale of vintage audio gear brought in nearly $1,300.  Its first Facebook Live  event in mid-July generated a similar amount of funds.  The 3rd online sale is set for later this month.
