A Riel-ly Amazing Day

This event would not have been pos­si­ble with­out the gen­er­ous peo­ple who donat­ed Lin­dens to reserve an hour of pro­gram­ming. First of all, your pro­grams were sim­ply stun­ning. Each of you illus­trat­ed your knowl­edge and appre­ci­a­tion of music, and for me that was one of the biggest joys of the day.

You Riel Audio­philes, our lis­ten­ers and sup­port­ers, are intel­li­gent, classy and amaz­ing peo­ple. I have always known this! But yes­ter­day brought it home to me in such a con­crete way. I was hon­ored, along with Otenth and Edward, to bring your pro­grams to you through­out the day. Yes­ter­day’s pro­gram­ming was pos­si­ble due to the fol­low­ing peo­ple, orga­ni­za­tions and com­mu­ni­ties:

Wild­star Beau­mont
Ser­aph City
Rowan Der­ry­th
The Prim­graph Mag­a­zine
Bod­hisat­va Paper­clip
Azul Drak­en
Eva Bel­lam­bi
Design­ing Worlds
PJ Tren­ton
Aval­on Town
Neill McCul­lough
Elrik Mer­lin
The Bash­ful Pea­cock
Book­worm Hien­richs
Prim Per­fect Mag­a­zine
Annechen Lowey
Otenth Pader­born
Breezy Carv­er
Pier­mont Land­ing
Kara Tin­tam
Eleanor Ander­ton

As always, the Radio Riel Staff deserves a huge “thank you” for being the fab­u­lous folks that they are.  Thank you all for your sup­port, which you all pro­vid­ed in var­i­ous ways.  I have a super spe­cial “thank you” for Edward and Otenth for your live sets that you pro­vid­ed yes­ter­day.  I think the two of you helped save me from com­plete exhaus­tion!

Thank you to RFL Team New Bab­bage for wel­com­ing me, Radio Riel and New Toulouse with open arms into the team.  I am hon­ored that you have includ­ed us in your com­mu­ni­ty efforts.  Thank you for see­ing the val­ue in us and our con­tri­bu­tions.  It means more to me than you will ever know.

I, and Radio Riel, have hap­pi­ly pro­vid­ed innu­mer­able hours, Lin­dens and effort to RFL for the past 4 years because it’s some­thing that we believe is impor­tant.  We have all been touched by can­cer.  Some of us are sur­vivors.  Some of us are care­tak­ers.  So many of us have had friends and loved ones that have fought the bat­tle with can­cer.

Thank you all for join­ing togeth­er, in the spir­it of joy and team­work, to make Riel Day for Life a resound­ing suc­cess.  I could not have done with­out all of you.

Thank you.
