For two decades the voices of Vision Australia Radio's Albury volunteers have echoed through Owen Jones' Albury home daily, keeping him connected to his community.
But after 20 years the station could soon deliver its final bulletin, plunging people like Owen into a silent disconnection.
Operated by Vision Australia, the radio service give people who are unable to read print access to a wide range of printed material, which are otherwise off limits.
However the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme has change the the way disability service organisations are funded.
Vision Australia's Chris Edwards said the change have jeopardised the broadcaster's future.
He said Vision Australia must secure $700,000 in federal funding to keep ts eight studios, including Albury, on air.
Mr Jones, who became blind after a car accident in 1969, said Vision Australia Radio keeps him connected to his community.
"I'd be shattered [if it closed], I really would be shattered," Mr Jones said. "I'm with the radio seven days a week.

"Volunteers read The Border Mail of a morning and until about 11am they have volunteers reading the national daily papers without that I'd be lost.
"I think the government really is responsible for all disabled people and abled bodied people having access to information, and it's their responsibility to keep community radio stations on air."
Vision Australia's Chris Edwards said without government intervention, the service could close.
"The NDIS has meant major changes to how disability support organisations are funded, and unfortunately those changes have severely jeopardized the future of Vision Australia Radio," he said. "Each year more than 700,000 people tune into Vision Australia Radio.
"Closure would mean equal access to broadcast media for people with a print disability is severely restricted and local and diverse content will be lost for good."
Vision Australia Radio has called on volunteers, listeners and community members to speak to local politicians about the issue.
A spokesman for Member for Farrer Sussan Ley said Vision Australia had been in contact and Ms Ley's officer had requested some more details about the funding needs and requirements of the Albury station.
"Under the NDIS a specific fund has been created for activities and programmes to help connect someone with a disability with our local community," he said.
"$398 million will be spent over the next three years, and I know Minister Robert is encouraging Vision Australia to apply for a grant within this fund."
