2012 Multi-Cultural Wish List
As the year 2011 winds down, many media outlets choose to look at the highlights of the year gone by. Instead, our friends Skot and Rick asked us to share our wishes for the coming year.

Here, Dr. Rik Stevenson and I each share our three fondest wishes for 2012 in two sound files on Radio in Black & White.
