Recent radio listener + festival comments sampler ( still more on the air .. )
“I’m basking in the glow of Sitara’s song. It just played, and I’ve been meaning to let you know I’ve heard the song several times at night. The song warms my heart!” Kaiwe.
“Hi, we found out about this radio station last year and we love it!! We listen to it every day.” Natalie.
Hi there! I LOVE your radio station so much!!! Tonight you played song with the lyrics “I’m letting go” and I think you may have said it is by Deborah Ayol(sp?). I tried searching for it but may have her name wrong and the title wrong. Any chance you could tell me the details? Thank you! Life changing radio! Lindsay
“Thank you for all you do. I found your station this year and have quickly come to depend on it for daily doses of love, intelligence, inspiration and rhythm. I’d like to donate but it looks like the Funding Pal link is no longer active. Let me know when it is active again, or how I can best send you some $.” Catherine.
“I love seeing how many people are willing to volunteer to help with the festival. El Cerrito is a great city!” Ann.

“Greetings folks. I’m hoping you can help me out. On Tuesday 11/29 at 11:38 am you played the sweetest little bit of something I’ve heard maybe ever. I don’t wanna sink into hyperbole, but I do know that it held me pinned to my seat until it was done with me. Great female voice, acoustic guitar just cooking, slide tasty. wow…talk about moogin the oot greet…It had been preceded by an fine african rhythm thing, and when it ended I heard ‘way back in the distance the dj, in a kind of deep wave voice, “Andrea (something) Ya yo no, or Yano no”. Who is Andrea? Who was that band? Please help if you can. Thanks.“ Kyle
We are interested in knowing the name of the inspirational DJ/poet/natural mystic who offers meditations every day re: personal attitude, loving one another, honoring earth, etc. This mystery man is definitely a highlight in addition to all the terrific music y’all got goin’ on... Please respond and let us know. Thanks! Jennifer and Kurt, El Cerrito
Heard a great track last night I want to share. The Chorus was “I am great mother amma, I’m immortal” with a female rapper. It was about 9pm 3/24. I love your station so much! I’m a local listener in Berkeley….James
Love your broadcasts!! The overall theme and messages are exactly what we need as a society. The musical diversity is so refreshing. Thank you! Alan
Hey Cory. Always always always enjoy the show. THANK YOU. Richard S.
Hey Corey, its Ben – ( allCREATURES vet…) Anyhoo -> I would like to help out with the festival this year if you still need hands. Also, I am dropping a check in the mail right now as a thanks for keeping the lights on and the music going. I have a big long story about it but basically if I am not listening to CBC radio in my car (sirus radio) Then I have KECG on or occasionally NPR for Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me and such! ANYHOO its time I paid my fair share. Thanks again for all the great tunes and hit me back if you need help this summer.
Tonight you are playing deep Native American. It is powerful yet comforting yet empowering.
During these increasingly troubled times, We wish for such a transforming performance at the
the 4th of July Festival. Perhaps we would all take a much-needed collective sigh and be reminded about the gift of life. Thanks for all your great vibes/music/etc. We are not worthy !!!!! Flo ..
