Thanks--he's a class act!

Wow thank you so much for posting this interview. (totally realize I am way late to the game, but thank you nonetheless)

His points on Karma and positive-thinking all coupled to a hard work-ethic really made me smile, happy to hear someone of his stature extol these most basic of concepts.

To me, Garry's perseverance in the face of backstabbing-adversity makes him deserving of being radio's "George Bailey" to Roe's "Henry F. Potter"

Also his ability to remain humble and not act like he is above the rest of us, endears him to me as one of the best voices on radio.

It is my hope that HE will always be in radio; perhaps eventually in his later days or after tiring of the daily show grind settle into a position similar to that of the late-great Paul Harvey.

Thanks for stopping by--it's never too late to listen to any of the podcasts.

You are right about him. He's a good guy, and I've seen this first-hand because I've worked on his show a few times, and he was nothing but professional, friendly to everyone, and really enjoying himself.

He also likes the listeners and they like him. It's just a good situation for him, and I hope it continues because he deserves it.
