Liz Murphy emailed: "I recently discovered your podcasts and it has raised my morale enormously. I recently broke my leg seriously, recently, and am stuck, alone, in a rehab clinic for weeks. Your lovely music is so beautiful that I am transported to Ireland instantly, the home of my gorgeous husband. Keep up the good work. You are loved!"

Peter Bengtson emailed: "Enjoyed listening to 6 hours of your podcasts Saturday. I spent that time flying from Phoenix to Honolulu. I could listen to your podcasts stored on my phone.

The SiriusXM symphony hall concerts I listened to don’t stay on the phone.

I’ll be on a commercial birding tour for 12 days. I’ll be too busy to listen to music then.

I’ll catch up when I’m back home."
