    Hey Tom! I’m so excited to have found you again! Of course you didn’t know you were missing but I did 🙂 I’ve been listening to the KQ Morning Show since I started working overnights as a night audit at the old Sheraton on 94 & 81 when I was 19, way back in 1995. In 2007 I moved to WI to be with my boyfriend (now husband.) In all of the years since I have been missing MN and especially you and the KQ morning show. I never thought to check I Heart Radio for you because I know how much you are against syndication. I checked a week or so ago and found you guys! I couldn’t believe it! Now I’m listening every day and it feels like I’m back home. Last night I was searching the web and found your pod casts! I’m so excited! I think it’s great that you are doing the podcast. It’s even better that you’re doing it your way with your family. I am privileged to listen!

    I am sorry to hear that things in your life haven’t been great lately but I hope you realize that you have a ton of support out there. Don’t worry about what the idiots say. I was reading some of their posts last night about your being a racist and things like that. I feel like those people don’t listen enough to understand you. Not that I do, I don’t mean to assume things. It’s interesting to me because I’ve always known you were older than I was but I didn’t know how much until I googled you last night. You are one year older than my father which is probably why you make so much sense to me. It’s really not about liking or disliking any certain type of person but that all people should contribute equally and not expect a handout.

    Sorry I’m rambling on and on I’m just so excited to be able to listen to you again. Thank you also for taking a stand for Terri. She is a smart woman. In a man’s world she has certainly found her niche. Yes, she has to take a lot of crap and abuse but I suspect she’s got a pretty good gig in life. In the end isn’t that what it’s about, making choices? Yes she could work somewhere else where she would get more respect and less of the stupid comments but I think she probably really likes her job and the perks that come with it. She’s great as well! Really, I’m so happy to have found you guys again!

    Please remember that we are thinking about you and standing behind you. The world is filled with a-holes and sometimes you just need to tell them to get the f*** out of the way!

    Oh, and by the way, I joined your Twitter feed last night. I was super excited to see that you were following me this morning! It made me laugh because I’ve never posted anything on Twitter, I don’t think I even know how. My picture or icon is an egg for God’s sake!

    Thanks for everything, and know now that I’ve found you guys on I Heart Radio I will be teaching these cheese heads what real radio is all about!
