From the On Point Mailbox: Gathering Round the Radio...

Tom just received this listener letter. He read it aloud today in the staff meeting:

Dear Mr. Ashbrook & the On Point Staff –

Thank you so much for this show and its attitude of patience and care. I think of it as a ‘philosophical’ survey of our experience with each other and the world. You always consider the essence, treat it with respect, view it from several perspectives, and allow it to entertain us without ever obscuring the facts with rhetoric or drama. It’s just a great, great job and Tom has the feel of the show so rich I could picture families once again gathering around the living room radio and staring at it.

Thank you!
