Listener Comments and Reviews

Your anchors in the morning, before talking about the alimony bill should have to pay it for 20 years to someone that chooses not to work a job and collect a payment each month. They said how it would impact those that won't get it anymore..well what about the impact on those that paid it for 20 years and can't retire as they can't afford to. Put the shoe on the other foot and your opinion might be different!

I listen to 970 FM whenever I can get it in my car. I know you have conservative hosts that are willing to support those that help Vets. So I am sending the letter below that I have sent to the Tampa Bay Times in hopes they will run it. It would mean a lot to me as a Vet if you could have it read on air to recognize the fantastic service the Doctors, Nurses, Techs, and others who are boots on the ground at C W Bill Young VA Hospital in St. Petersburg. If are willing to read it, I would appreciate a heads up in order to hear it myself. Thank you in advance for you consideration! A VETERAN'S APPREICATION Much is reported concerning the problems that veterans have to face on a daily basis with the Veterans Administration. Yet veterans overwhelmingly consider the Doctors, PAs, Nurses, Tech Staff, Lab Personnel, and all others who represent boots on ground as some of the best people in their fields. There is a particular group of these people at C W Bill Young VA Hospital in St. Petersburg that I want to acknowledge with my thanks and support. After 2+ years of pain suffered through delayed appointments and appointments that had to be rescheduled due to results being too old for use, I finally got my THR (Total Hip Replacement) almost six months after being diagnosed as having bone on bone in my right hip. On November 17, 2015 I received a Right THR from the skilled & experienced hands of Dr. Bernard Fishalow and his excellent surgical team to whom I am grateful. Although I was not awake to observe their skills I have subsequently experienced a rapid recovery albeit painful & uncomfortable. After only two and a half weeks I am walking, eating out and going shopping using only a cane at times. But I also want to recognize the people who took care of me after coming out of surgery and guiding me as I started my trip to recovery. These are the Nurses, Techs, Housekeeping and Food Service people of Inpatient Surgical Care Unit 3C. There was Kristine, Trish, Ada, Joe, Erick, Herman, Harry, Sophia, Chris (in Physical Therapy), Prea (in Occupational Therapy), Food Service (who provided best meals I've eaten away from home) and others whose names I didn't catch. These are well trained, caring people that put their patients (Veterans) in their sights and keep them there until they are discharged. As for anyone I failed to mention or spelled names wrong, you know who you are and you need to know how much I appreciate each and every one of you. I want Americans to know that the care givers at our VA Hospitals are some of the best there are. But I hope Congress will continue to investigate VA Administrators many of whom are in positions that they are totally unqualified for and only have due to their tenure within the VA Administration. Love each of you in Christ, Rhondal D. Burns Arcadia, FL

I have heard that you will no longer have your gardening show with the current host on Sunday morning. This has been a staple for Floridians as well as others who have tuned in. Hopefully you will have a gardening show in its place. Aside from listening to that on Sunday mornings, which I always try to catch, there will be nothing to listen to on the radio so many of us will merely play a YouTube video while we’re getting ready in the morning. You will lose a lot of your audience if there is no Gardening show. A few people might tune in and discover it is merely an infomercial on in that timeslot or more talk about politics ( for which we can get all the info we need during the week) or another financial show (which many of us turn right off since that can merely be depressing). The gardening show is uplifting and gives us real information that we can use immediately that day and throughout the week. You would be doing a great service to yourselves and to your audience if this type of programming is no longer available on your station.

News reported on a condo who told a homo sodomite to remove her rainbow flag by Sunday or face a fine. You all reported it with a spin that the condo is wrong because she is merely celebrating “I’m a homo-sodomite and my sexual life is with those of the same gender and I am so proud of it that I’m gonna display a flag for everyone to see” Week or however long it is. Your subtle support for such a vile, perverted and abnormal lifestyle is part of an overall media campaign to brainwash the masses into accepting such filth. It is blatantly obvious and you are a reason I have such disdain for the media. There are people that aren’t part of this push for debauchery and sin and we see the agenda you push. Read the Bible and see what the God of creation thinks of homosexuality-sodomites. Leviticus 20:13 and Romans 1.
