"Thank you very much for the wonderful music and radio that you are broadcasting. I'm a student, and my study and work require my mind to always be occupied. There is barely time for praying. However, because of the orthodox music that you play, I feel peace in my soul and can pray while I'm doing my job or learning. Thank you and God bless you!"
