Special program thanking Bill Clause ORIGINAL BROADCAST: July 1, 2014 | 06:00 pm

This special presentation of Radio Active Magazine is a thank you Mr. Bill Clause show from all of the activist groups and people associated with the show. Radio Active Magazine was Bill’s idea a little over a year ago. His concern was that activist groups should have a forum available on which they could present their views, opinions, and information to the people of greater Kansas City. Like most all things Bill sets his sights on, he accomplished that. Radio Active hit the airwaves of KKFI a year ago, first monthly, then every two weeks, until it became a weekly presentation. All the activists associated with Radio Active have much to thank Bill Clause for and this episode of Radio Active is our way of doing that.
