"I can't say in words how wonderful that makes me feel to know that I have the support of yourself and the staff of BBS Radio. I think all of you are awesome and I look for many more of these days. Your support made this show happened tonight. I say this because you were absolutely there walking me through everything and not one time did you allow me to feel discomfort. I truly believe that I would have never done this show if it was not for your support. I am grateful to be apart of the BBS Radio family. I have no reason to go else where because BBS Rocks. Thank you for the wonderful recording of introduction. I loved it. It was so amazing. Thank you also for just believing in me."

"Thank you and Doug for your kind hospitality in patiently answering my questions today. You both were so pleasant to speak with. And I learned a lot. It really rung a bell with me when you and he emphasized that you do everything for the budding host. Thus, all I have to do is 'show up,' and, as Doug said,  perform good radio."

"I reviewed the sample profile you sent, Debrah. It looks very professional. You and Doug and your website impress as top-notch."

Hey - love your show. Love the stories you all tell and the music reminds me of my old neighborood piano bar thats not around anymore sadly. Anyway, just wanted to compliment you on your playing and all the terrific songs you do - never had heard "Spring can really hang you up" - I liked it and "Slow boat to China" .

I want to thank you so much for your “Valentine” special this past week. I listened to your show this weekend from the BBS archive and it was great! It was so enjoyable to hear your playing and your wife Janis has a great voice alone or with harmonies with you. I especially enjoyed your rendition of “Days of Wine & Roses”. Until I heard you recite the poem  I always thought the song was written for the film. Once again thank you so much for your weekly show - I look forward to it!

that was a beautiful poem Dr. Love - there are tears in my eyes as I hear you speak it...


I have been listening to your show on BBS radio and just wanted to send you a quick note to say how much I enjoyed hearing your poetry.

Thank you so much for the touching story before you shared the poem Hunger. More especially is the poem itself. As a widower myself I was deeply touched by the poem.

Once again, thanks.


to Steve and Janis,

You guys are so great - I missed your show on Valentine's Day but I caught it tonight, Saturday, Feb. 15!  I made a nice pasta dinner, lit a fire in the fireplace, poured myself a glass of wine and sat down to listen to your show Golden Memories - and what a treat that was!!!! Steve, thank you for playing my request, The Shadow of your Smile - and especially for playing the intro written for that song - gave me goosebumps - as you never hear that beginning - thank you!!!!

And your reportoire is excellent for love songs! Both of you together bring a warmth and sincerity to your show every week, but tonight when I was listening it was so clear that the two of you love each other - it truly comes across - so Happy Valentine's Day to you too!

I love the part of the poem you read before The Days of Wine and Roses - a little piece of information I did not know!  And Janis always gives us little tid bits and I so enjoy them - keep it up Janis. The two of you are not only talented, but deliciously entertaining, warm, funny and just plain awesome!!! I like nothing better than to sit back at night and tune into your show - very relaxing and I feel like I am spending time with old firends and the music I love to hear played and sang!

You truly bring the warmth and joy of a piano bar to the living rooms of all your listeners - what a gift you give!



LOVE LOVE LOVE the new opeing song "Changed Man" - it so stands up to and vocalizes ALL that TEEN-TRAIN stands for! And Happy Birthday to your brother John!!!! 

May the train keep moving ...

Much Respect,


Dear Sean and Shawn,

I want to thank you guys for another great show this past Monday. I truly enjoyed your interview with Ephraim Salaam. I especially enjoyed hearing him talk of his high school experience & how his counsellor said he would never be a success in Football. His story proves that how important it is to believe in yourself & your talents.

Love you guys!

Dear Senator Brown,

I'm an avid listener and I want to say thanks for another great show this past Sunday. I am sorry to hear Senator about your mishap last week. I hope you will be back in good health in no time. On your show you had mentioned that both you & Kathleen had worked for President Carter’s campaign. What are the chances of having him on your show for an interview?  I would truly enjoy having the two of you interview President Carter & get his perspectives on the current climate in the congress.

As always, thanks again and I look forward to your future shows.

`Dear Wynn- I was finally able to listen to your live Sunday show today although I tuned in late as I was listening to last weeks show and not watching the clock. Your Planetary healing is exactly what I was told to contact George and John B Wells about doing every night as we tune into Coast to Coast, then you came on the show and I have been monitoring you ever since, seeing if this is really where I was being led.  I believe it is. It is a longer story than I can write now, the latest journey began 8-17-2013 when I came home from work, looked at my husband sitting on the deck and asked " Do you need to go to the hospital" Yes" was his reply. Renal cell carcinoma right kidney into inferior vena cava and into right atrium of the heart. 34 days later at 3:40 pm he passed away at home with his children and I, it was amazing, the energy the same as at the births of our children. What he has been teaching me since is wonderful. I will send on  a letter I wrote to the hospitals,Michael's Final Story along with the continuing story as soon as possible.

Thank you


I am employed by BBS Radio and I was working in the studio yesterday when Doug put your show on - and then I heard a piece of music I know intimately - yet had not heard or played on the piano in so long - the opening of the 32 Goldberg Variations by Bach.  I got up and ran over to the speaker it was coming from and listened in respected silence  - the beauty of those notes and the nuances between them interpreted by your guest, Beth, was captivating.  I am used to listening to Glenn Gould, the Canadian Pianist, interpret these notes, and I happen to resonate deeply with his style.  But your guest Beth stood up next to Gould and grabed my attention whole heartedly. It gave me pause - and spoke to me.  Please let her know how much I appreciated her playing all through your show. Even though The Goldberg Variations were published in 1741, they are timeless treasures still.

Lena, thank you for all you bring to your listening audience and the care in which you deliver it.  I studied the Dorothy Taubman method under a teacher for a year when I was younger and it made all the difference in my approach to the piano.

Sincerely from a lover of Bach,

Love your new addition of the "proverb" at the end of your show - and great commentary on the two poems - quite unusual and refreshing! Good show!

Re: your show on the Love for the Written Word -

I stumbled upon your program by mistake.  I got mixed up on the time for another show on another day - but what a treasure I found.

Your voice and presence was soothing and thoughtful and I was taken aback that someone would actually read a poem. Not only read a poem, but read it with intention of letting the listener get lost in the images invoked. When do you ever get the chance to hear the spoken word, in this case, a poem, read to you on the radio? I was spellbound and had to keep listening. There is nothing more enjoyable than a poem read outloud, giving me time to reflect, amid my hectic day, and let the spoken word touch my own heart.

Thank you for those two beautiful poems and that moment to listen - to listen profoundly.


I really enjoyed your show last week on home inspection.
It is so important to ensure that your home is properly inspected.
The home I purchased a few years ago had a garage that was converted to a
living room by the previous owner. I soon started have water leakage and a
severe mold problem in this converted space. When I called a mold inspector
out I had discovered that no stem wall was installed when this space was
converted. It cost me thousands of dollars to make the proper repairs. As
this was not flood related this was not covered by my home insurance. So it
is so important to ensure that your home is properly inspected.

Thanks for the great topic -

love the poem about "the shadow" - moving . . .

I have been listening to your show for sometime now. When I heard last night
that you were going to discuss poetry & more specifically poems from the book
"Ten Poems to Last a Lifetime" I was eager to hear your discussion.

I was a little disappointed when the show lasted a brief 20 minutes last
night and there was only a brief discussion concerning this topic.

I know you must have a very busy life but I hope in the future you will
return to this topic & discuss some of the other fine poems in this book.

I look forward to future topics you will be covering on your show.

Heard your rendition of Bill Evan's "Waltz for Debbie" on a past show- very nice!
I am neither a professional musician nor a jazz critic, but in my humble opinion
what made Bill Evans great was his ability to improvise without losing the
beauty of the melody.  He is the most romantic (I don't mean this in a
degrading sense) jazz pianist I have ever heard.

I was wondering if you could play "Beautiful Love" - in your best Bill Evans
tradition. Thank you for your wonderful show - truly enjoy it!
