    My wife and I are in love with BGO. We have been loyal members and listeners for 12 years. We would be hard pressed if the station went off the air and that's why we give our support year after year. So kudos for another great year.

    Sincerely,

    Michael W.

    My Dearest WBGO,

    You are so nice to come home to – one of my favorite things.

    We can be alone together; and if I’m afro blue or in one of those sentimental moods,

    you can bring me some of that epistrophy boplicity jelly roll jitterbug black magic and get me to straighten up and fly right.

    Oh yes!  You’ve got what it takes to make my heart sing.

    It don’t me a thing if it ain’t got that swing. And hey, WBGO.  You’ve got it!

    You could  be my one and only love; or even my funny valentine.

    But  if you don’t know by now, you’ll always be the sunshine of my life.

    Love always….

    from Nina  never knew…..aka Nina H.

    PS….I listened to WRVR since I was seven years old,

    and to WBGO since I returned to NYC in the early eighties.

    KEEP THE MUSIC COMING!!!

    A Valentine’s Poem to WBGO

    Roses are red,

    Violets are blue,

    This is so cliché,

    And so not you!

    Trumpets are winds,

    Saxophones are reeds,

    Jazz is an artistic expression openly share by WBGO,

    Thus I kindly thank thee!

    Over the years,

    And through the obstacles,

    Mr. Cephas Bowles,

    You have honored us.

    With your creative endeavors,

    And blessed plan and action,

    You and your team have aided WBGO and Newark in their successful expansion.

    I wish WBGO increased stardom,

    And to Mr. Bowles, your team and listeners,

    I wish you continued success, joy and wisdom.
