I enjoyed ‘Singing Along with the Radio’ a lot. It reintroduced me to a lot of songs that I’ve heard over the years but not recently. Then it reintroduced me to many singers I’ve also heard and enjoyed over the years but haven’t had time to hear them for some time. Finally, it introduced me to Wanda as a singer and not just a folk DJ. It conjured up memories of hootenannies and singarounds when I was an undergrad at the University of Chicago. It also conjured up memories of such wonderful folks as Bob and Evelyne Beers, George and Gerry Armstrong, and many others who formed my musical psyche. It was almost as if a new Golden Ring had been born. (note: Mike passed away shortly after sending this comment.  I have left his words here in his memory.  He was a wonderful person and an outstanding folk DJ–WF)
