I HAVE LISTENED TO 90.5 FOR THE PAST 4 YEARS. I PLAYED IN THE ORCHESTRA IN MY YOUNGER YEARS. BUT, AS A TEENAGER IN THOSE YEARS, I DID NOT GRASP IT AS MUCH AS NOW. NOW THAT I AM OLDER, AND SLOWED MYSELF ENOUGH TO "SMELL THE ROSES", I FIND MYSELF IN A SORT OF CELESTIAL REBIRTH. I LISTEN TO YOU EVERY SINGLE DAY OF MY LIFE. YOU'RE THERE WHEN I FALL ASLEEP, AND YOU'RE THERE WHEN I AWAKEN. I DON'T EXACTLY KNOW WHAT I WOULD DO WITHOUT THIS MOST WONDERFUL PROGRAM. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND GOD BLESS, YOU
