Much Respect,


Dear Sean and Shawn,

I want to thank you guys for another great show this past Monday. I truly enjoyed your interview with Ephraim Salaam. I especially enjoyed hearing him talk of his high school experience & how his counsellor said he would never be a success in Football. His story proves that how important it is to believe in yourself & your talents.

Love you guys!

Dear Senator Brown,

I'm an avid listener and I want to say thanks for another great show this past Sunday. I am sorry to hear Senator about your mishap last week. I hope you will be back in good health in no time. On your show you had mentioned that both you & Kathleen had worked for President Carter’s campaign. What are the chances of having him on your show for an interview?  I would truly enjoy having the two of you interview President Carter & get his perspectives on the current climate in the congress.

As always, thanks again and I look forward to your future shows.

`Dear Wynn- I was finally able to listen to your live Sunday show today although I tuned in late as I was listening to last weeks show and not watching the clock. Your Planetary healing is exactly what I was told to contact George and John B Wells about doing every night as we tune into Coast to Coast, then you came on the show and I have been monitoring you ever since, seeing if this is really where I was being led.  I believe it is. It is a longer story than I can write now, the latest journey began 8-17-2013 when I came home from work, looked at my husband sitting on the deck and asked " Do you need to go to the hospital" Yes" was his reply. Renal cell carcinoma right kidney into inferior vena cava and into right atrium of the heart. 34 days later at 3:40 pm he passed away at home with his children and I, it was amazing, the energy the same as at the births of our children. What he has been teaching me since is wonderful. I will send on  a letter I wrote to the hospitals,Michael's Final Story along with the continuing story as soon as possible.

Thank you


I am employed by BBS Radio and I was working in the studio yesterday when Doug put your show on - and then I heard a piece of music I know intimately - yet had not heard or played on the piano in so long - the opening of the 32 Goldberg Variations by Bach.  I got up and ran over to the speaker it was coming from and listened in respected silence  - the beauty of those notes and the nuances between them interpreted by your guest, Beth, was captivating.  I am used to listening to Glenn Gould, the Canadian Pianist, interpret these notes, and I happen to resonate deeply with his style.  But your guest Beth stood up next to Gould and grabed my attention whole heartedly. It gave me pause - and spoke to me.  Please let her know how much I appreciated her playing all through your show. Even though The Goldberg Variations were published in 1741, they are timeless treasures still.

Lena, thank you for all you bring to your listening audience and the care in which you deliver it.  I studied the Dorothy Taubman method under a teacher for a year when I was younger and it made all the difference in my approach to the piano.

Sincerely from a lover of Bach,

Love your new addition of the "proverb" at the end of your show - and great commentary on the two poems - quite unusual and refreshing! Good show!

Re: your show on the Love for the Written Word -

I stumbled upon your program by mistake.  I got mixed up on the time for another show on another day - but what a treasure I found.

Your voice and presence was soothing and thoughtful and I was taken aback that someone would actually read a poem. Not only read a poem, but read it with intention of letting the listener get lost in the images invoked. When do you ever get the chance to hear the spoken word, in this case, a poem, read to you on the radio? I was spellbound and had to keep listening. There is nothing more enjoyable than a poem read outloud, giving me time to reflect, amid my hectic day, and let the spoken word touch my own heart.

Thank you for those two beautiful poems and that moment to listen - to listen profoundly.


I really enjoyed your show last week on home inspection.
It is so important to ensure that your home is properly inspected.
The home I purchased a few years ago had a garage that was converted to a
living room by the previous owner. I soon started have water leakage and a
severe mold problem in this converted space. When I called a mold inspector
out I had discovered that no stem wall was installed when this space was
converted. It cost me thousands of dollars to make the proper repairs. As
this was not flood related this was not covered by my home insurance. So it
is so important to ensure that your home is properly inspected.

Thanks for the great topic -

love the poem about "the shadow" - moving . . .

I have been listening to your show for sometime now. When I heard last night
that you were going to discuss poetry & more specifically poems from the book
"Ten Poems to Last a Lifetime" I was eager to hear your discussion.

I was a little disappointed when the show lasted a brief 20 minutes last
night and there was only a brief discussion concerning this topic.

I know you must have a very busy life but I hope in the future you will
return to this topic & discuss some of the other fine poems in this book.

I look forward to future topics you will be covering on your show.

Heard your rendition of Bill Evan's "Waltz for Debbie" on a past show- very nice!
I am neither a professional musician nor a jazz critic, but in my humble opinion
what made Bill Evans great was his ability to improvise without losing the
beauty of the melody.  He is the most romantic (I don't mean this in a
degrading sense) jazz pianist I have ever heard.

I was wondering if you could play "Beautiful Love" - in your best Bill Evans
tradition. Thank you for your wonderful show - truly enjoy it!

You guys are so different - I've never heard anything like it before on
radio.  Do you write your own skits? And if you do, how do you come up with
these ideas together?! Really terrific - almost like a Beckett play - kind of
modern day "existential" stuff. . . comedy and truth.  Are we all just still
waiting for Godot? You seem to break down the illusory patterns that appear
to give us security. Bravo!

Dear Mr. Rodriquez-Walling,

Thank you for your commentary on so many interesting subjects - this
particular show included. I don't read or hear much poetry anymore - I read a
lot in college - your show lit a longing in me to connect with poetry again -

Love your honesty and common sense! You're not afraid to explore the "human
condition" -  good and bad - sometimes I cringe as I see myself in your words
but it's still refreshing to hear as it makes me think! You're show is
very intertaining and empowering - thanks for the common sense Marty! And
encouraging me to get off the couch and move!!!

You left out Ballroom Dancing - its great exercise for
the mind and body!

Thanks for your unique outlook on life!

I have been listening to your show for some time now & I truly enjoy listening to you and your guests.

What I like most is how you use the positive aspects of sports rather than reflect on the negative. Case in point was your guest last night, Cornell Ward.

Here is an individual who is giving of his time & talents to help inner city children. It is having guests such as him that separates your sports shows from the others.

Keep up the good work & I look forward to many shows to come.


Thank you so much for playing "Waltz for Debbie by Bill Evans again for me .
. .you know how much Bill Evans means to me and you convey his "cluster
chordings" so well - he would be proud!  I am of you!  You will have to send
me that sheet music sometime.

Valentine's Day is coming up and I am gearing up for hearing songs like "The
Shadow of Your Smile", "The Days of Wine and Roses", "My Funny Valentine",
"Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most", "Beautiful Love" . . . and that
anniversary song you wrote!!!

You are such a 'gem' on the BBS Radio Network Steve  - we have never had a
show like yours!!! Thank you for coming into our lives and bringing your
wonderful music - hugs and kisses to you and Janice . . .

Love, Debrah

I want to thank you for your show on Tuesday evenings. I appreciate your thoughts and feelings that you share with us each week. A lot of what you say is basic common sense that comes from the heart. But many of us don't take the time during our busy lives to explore the ideas/feelings that you express on your show.

Once again thanks & I look forward to your next show!

I have been listening to your show for some time now & I must say that last night's interview with Jake Olson was inspiring.

Jake Olson is one of those rare individuals that had a devastating blow to his health and turned it into something positive not only for himself but also for others.

Thanks again for the engrossing interview and I look forward to your next show.

Love the new Sunday line up on BBS Radio and your show!  The two of you are very  charismatic and alive - and I love what you had to say about "lift or drift" and the "emotional compass" - looking forward to more insights and knowledge - thank you for giving.
