Brother Justin from WNCW 88.7FMs Dubatomic Particles here. Just wanted to send a link to let you know that your album And God Said To Man finsished as the number one album of 2010 in our Best of 2010 Year in review! I felt that this was a particularly brilliant effort and I want to commend you for releasing such strong roots music in this modern time. We have been spinning the record very often with incredibly positive response from our listeners. I would love to have you do a promotional drop for the radio show that I can play when I spin the record. All relevant information will be listed at the bottom of the message.
On a personal note, I want to let you know that your lyrics offer inspiration during difficult times. Having such tough music to fall back on can keep that foot stepping forward against all opposition.
Again, congratulations on putting forth the strongest effort of 2010! Please keep us informed of your future efforts.
