"A Radio is a wonderful thing. It can make you happy; it can inspire you with great music and words. Alternatively it can make you sad, it can make you cry, and it can bring back memories of times gone by. It has the power to make your day, set you up for life, and enhance your experience in the big and not so big things. It is with you in your loving, in your laughter, in your weeping and in your traumas – in all your living experiences.”
