Keith Richards Assists Radio Station

Angel Radio, an Isle of Wight  station in a bind over the costs of a new transmitter, found an angel in Keith Richards.  The Rolling Stones guitarist, flush with royalties from his memoir that recently passed the million copies sales mark, decided to send nearly $5,000 to help the station replace a transmitter that was hard hit by a July storm - that's around $1,500 more than the cost of the equipment.  Station manager Bev Webster said she nearly had a heart attack when she read the letter from the musician's accountant while opening envelopes containing donations from listeners.
