Have you ever thought about starting your own business from the comfort of your backyard? For one Taylor County man, that dream has come true.

Roger Blake runs WLMN radio in the small town of Grafton, and it all started from using his personal computer all the way back in 2000.

Since then, his station has gained a lot of popularity.

Where's the station headquartered? In a small building right in his backyard.

5 News had a chance to sit down with him on Sunday, and he said he has so many listeners, which range from about 400 to 500, and people can't wait for him to start broadcasting.

"The gain is giving the chance to get Taylor County and local businesses on the map. I have a passion for it. I live it, I eat, and I breathe it," said Roger Blake, owner of WLMN radio.

Blake said he couldn't be happier to be bringing attention to the Grafton area, and hopes to further expand his radio station to the FM radio waves very soon.
