QUOTES FROM OUR LISTENERS
 
Brittany Deininger of Tacoma, WA, Marketing Manager of Sound Options, had this to say about their recent behind-the-scenes visit to a Classical KING FM live broadcast in the studios:   “Thank you so much for the invitation. The entire experience of seeing creativity in action was so interesting, the music of course was phenomenal, and I had some great conversations with other underwriters. As soon as my husband got in the car, he turned to me and said that is seriously one of the coolest experiences I have had all year. It was a pleasure to see the craft behind Classical KING FM. Thanks!”
 
“I'm a lifelong listener to classical music radio stations, from babyhood to 18 yrs. in  Los Angeles --my mother always kept the music station on all day. I continued the practice through college (Santa Barbara) and in Kirkland for these 35 yrs.Thanks!” -Mary Whittington, Kirkland, WA
 
“We enjoy classical music and listener-supported radio. One of our favorite programs on Classical King is "The Score" with Edmund Stone. We tune in attentively each weekend to hear his array of symphonic music for film. Thank-you!” -Mari and Lucas Martinez, Edmonds, WA
 
“Soothing music for the busy world.” -Pattie Berghof, Everett, WA
 
“I have just started listening to this station yesterday when I was flipping through the channels, I never knew it existed. I am very excited that I have found it now when I drive in the Washington rain I have a peaceful and relaxing trip :) -Thank you!”  -Naim Méndez, Yelm, WA
 
“I find the music soothing for myself - and my chickens love it.”  -Julie Pellegrini, Issaquah, WA
 
“Music Through The Night” with host Mike Brooks helped get me through a difficult period of my life. Mike plays wonderful music! I also love Sunday evenings of  'angel music' - the early music and the masses are very calming. And of course who doesn’t love Brad Eaton!”  -Tamara Bernstein, Duvall, WA
 
“Other than occasionally CBC reception (in Canada), Classical KING FM is the only local source for symphonic music.  Although you dwell on the Mozart type era too much for me, I do get exposed to many new composers and am thankful for that.  Good job!”  -Arthur Pederson, Seattle, WA
 
“[KING FM provides] protection against the dumbing down of the world. Be part of the movement to keep classical available to everyone!”  -Robert Leclaire, Everett, WA
