The Purpose of a Story

“Like so many others, I’ve been listening to your show since the first show. Some of the stories make me cry and many of them remind me of my own past Christmases. The Christmas music and your daughters both make it special, but make no mistake…I could listen to you talk all day. You’ve got a wonderful radio voice. Great story teller. Thanks for showing up every year!”
