I am so glad that you are conducting yet again programming of a genre that is very dear to my heart. In fact, it turned my life around.
You and your team have been with me in the best of times (the birth of my three sons, especially when they wouldn't go to sleep in the wee hours of the night and I had to rock them to "shu shu"). And you also were with me on the worst of times during the loss or work and a divorce.
I left Chicago some time ago for a better job and a fresh start in Florida and the ONLY thing that I missed most was my Smooth Jazz radio station, WNUA, where you, Danae, Scott and Bill--and who can forget Ramsey--truly brightened my day, every day since early in the morning.
Your programing and jazz itself were and are still my M.O. to relax and put up the craziness of everyday life.
Just the other day I found you on "Smooth Jazz Chicago," and I love it. Thanks for not giving up on us, poor souls that depend so much on what you do. For many years you guys were like my extended family because you were with me where ever I was, really! You guys are the best and, without sounding too mushy, all of you are very dear to my heart--just like the music you taught me to love. Congratulations and cheers on you new endeavor. May it last for many generations, and may it touch many lives as you did mine!
Please pass along a warm hi to Mr. Scott Adams. I missed his "Sounds of Brazil" so much on Saturday nights but I am glad that I can be there stuck to the radio again to enjoy such beautiful music and culture.
I am so glad you guys are still fighting the good fight. Merry Christmas & a Successful New Year 2013! Blessings!
One of your many great and faith full admirers,
Marvin R. Donis, Sr.
