something rom someone

Canadian singer-writer Nicole ‘Songbird’ Coward writes to CMR:

”I was very sad to hear today that you are pulling Folkal Point from your programming.
I am an Indie musician from Toronto, Canada and my songs have been aired several times on Colin MacDonald’s show. I’ve even played the show live in the restaurant where I work for all there to enjoy. I can honestly say that through the hundreds of DJs I’ve encountered nobody has shown they care more about us Indie artists as Colin has.
”He has taken great care and time to let us know when a song is in a playlist and even shows interest in developments in our career. This is someone very special that the world needs more of, and your station will be less without him”.
