"Our family has loved AFR and it has been a big blessing. It's constantly on in the car, at work, and at home. We especially enjoy it for our journey to attend services at our parish. It's excellent for getting your mind and spirit ready for worship. Even our 4-year-old daughter asks us to "play that church music!" The talk shows and podcasts are very informative, and we like the wide range of topics covered."
