        The day I found WTMD was one of the happiest days of my life!! I love you guys so much. I have missed WHFS for so many years now, and my knowledge of new music has been non-existent since then as well. Thank you so much for finally filling the void!! You are wonderful like a big breath of fresh air. Good bye talk radio forever!!

        Just what Darlene said and SO much more! Your programming moves me on a very deep level whenever I tune in! There's definitely been a profound re-awakening, for me, that I cannot really even put words to. It also seems it's been a Really DYNAMIC year for new music! I cannot thank you enough for what you do for me! My soul gets fed...I'm not ashamed or embarrassed to admit it either!:) Happy Holidays and Love from me to you WTMD.ORG! ♥ you stole my heart & it's a beautiful thing! ♥

        I just got home after taking my last final and turning in the paper I've been working on all weekend. They were both easier than trying to pick the "5 best songs" of the year! But it's only because of WTMD that I know so many worth choosing from. God bless you -- every one. XXOO
