In our very recent morning email, unedited.. Thank You Back ! = ; ) ~
Message: I don’t know how you guys suddenly appeared on my radio dial, but wow.
i listened for hours to radio brava yesterday and couldn’t believe my ears. i was afraid if i turned my dial away i would never find *that* station again. fortunately, i have found you here so i know you’re real and that i will be able to find you again. i haven’t been so excited about an fm station in a long long time. thank you thank you thank you…….
we understand, we know .. the FMs are modest to say the least … and p r e c i o u s … we did not intend worldOne to be a secret … we rather believe that this sound and feeling merits broad availability and wide o p e n appreciation and enjoyment .. it’s just that after talking to everyone we could think of ( local, a longish list of majors, coast to coast broadcasters, Artists and even Mr. Branson!), and or get an audience with, nearly 2o years ago … we found a modest home in little keCg which welcomed the Mission.. Thank you Prentice, Philip, and WCCUSD. And since them we’ve just been doin it and bein it and doin it ( well, we hope). Funnily enough? the station was indeed underground, in a oft-flooding basement/first floor at ECHS for the first 10 years or so of our nightly broadcasts … then we were in a portable for several years, and now in a pair of much more dignified small studios in a classroom suite … please feel free to call to arrange a visit ! or pop in when you are on- site at El Cerrito High School and Performing Arts Center …
and another email… quite on the heels of the missive above …
…or is this just serendipity? I just ran into you accidentally on my car radio yesterday and said, “Wow.” Now I go to your website and find “I don’t know how you guys suddenly appeared on my radio dial, but wow.” Something must be in the air. Keep it up.
Thank you again ! Please enjoy !! = ; ) ~
