Dear Christa,

I enjoy your soothing, warm, kind voice every morning before and often during my commute downtown. It starts my day off marvelously. I start every morning relaxed, encouraged, at peace and full of joy. People often ask me why I am seemingly always smiling and so at peace. I tell them that perhaps it is because I am listening to classical Portland. 😉 Hahaha. But seriously, the music has been such a comfort to me; the hosts so professional and delightful. When I moved out here almost 4 years ago, I was afraid I would not find a radio station as good as WFMT Chicago; was I wrong! I enjoy KQAC even more! I’ve so much appreciated recently the broadcast of Pearlfisher’s from the Met as well. I’m so impressed with the knowledge, anecdotes, side comments, and personality that shines through with each host. I also appreciate the variety of programming.

I cannot express enough how pleased I am with KQAC/ All Classical Portland. It has seen me through some very difficult times, a tough Christmas and other holidays. While I enjoy other music genres and styles as well, especially after the passing of both my parents, it has been so lovely to enjoy classical music again, while experiencing such amazing healing and peace. Classical music is absolutely healing for the mind, body and soul! Thank you all who contribute to the continued success of the station and all the programs and benefits it offers community. We are truly blessed here in Portland.

Most sincerely,
Julie
