Albany - Instead of music, you'll be hearing pleas to help sick children on the radio. Country 104.5 and Mix 107 are holding the annual St. Jude Radiothon. Tuesday and Wednesday, the radio stations are asking you to call in and make donations to help with research and medical care at St. Jude's Children's Hospital in Memphis.

"For just $20 a month, you can become a Partner in Hope," said radio personality Gena Davis. "We can simply charge the money to your credit or debt card monthly, and you don't have to worry about it again. For less than the cost of a soda a day, you can save the life of a child."

Last year, the Albany Radiothon raised $48,000, and they hope to raise even more money this year.
