"I would like to thank AFR for the wonderful programming. I don't always agree with every single opinion, but it's good to hear all of them just the same. Some of the programs really make me think and even help to strengthen my faith. And even when I listen to hosts who I don't generally like (I don't mean on a personal level), every now and then they'll say something that I might have never even considered . . . and it helps to knock a little arrogance out of me."
