Blog comments Your Say

  • Hi, Ric,
    I am writing to you from New York. I am listening on line to your program and your Magic 1278 wonderful music. I heard about you from my new dear friend, who I met in Poland last summer. She sings your praises and I can see why. Thank you for the joy you bring to others and may God bless you with continuous good health.
