Can't wait to hear it! Congratulations on speaking up about what's in your heart and finding a way to express your beliefs that will reach a wider audience. What a great feeling that must be! I love radio, and am thinking that this year I may find a way to reach a wider audience than my community station with my weekly commentary.


Word Lily

Very cool! Will you give us a link here once it's up and archived?


You wrote a beautiful essay. I am looking forward to listening to it.

Deb Robson

Susan, thanks for your support and encouragement. I love your commentaries (listenable at http://ow.ly/TNLb), and yes, it would be great to have them reach a larger audience!

Susan J. Tweit

Thanks, Deb. Once I get my brain cancer honey settled in at home, that's one of the things I'll be thinking about.... Loved hearing your voice on the streaming audio--what a wonderful piece!


Love your essay, and I'm glad to hear about the recording process. Congratulations on making it all happen! I haven't been able to get the KUNC website come live for myself yet, but maybe by Sunday...

Deb Robson

Ill definitely post the link when they get it to me, which they said they would.

I had a little challenge streaming the audio myself (Im within KUNCs range, but the computer was handier than the radio). Once I picked the right format and transmission rate, it came right in. I got it on iTunes MP3 stream at 24kbps. I dont know much about this stuff!

So glad to hear that the piece was good to listen to.


My first time to your blog - great post!


Wow! I loved your essay (read it a long time ago) and am so pleased to hear it will be on the radio. I too wrote a "This I Believe" essay a while back, but no one has ever asked me to record it. I'm so glad to hear you had this opportunity!

Deb Robson

Welcome, and thanks! Im having fun with your Ireland trade-up adventure,http://ow.ly/UwkX . I skeined up the handspun yarn last night. Couldnt believe there was a whole kilo (more than 2 pounds). Looking forward to the hair of the dog!

Deb Robson

Congratulations on writing a This I Believe piece. Its an amazing exercise, whether one is a writer by practice or not. I was delighted to have this chance to read it for our regional NPR affiliate. And to have the opportunity to meet the people at the station. Ive known about them for years, by name, but havent met any of them before.


I loved your This I Believe essay...thanks for sharing the link!

Deb Robson

Thanks so much, Valerie. I loved reading it! Im spending part of this weekend spinning, in company with the same friends I wrote about visiting--and some new friends as well. Continuity, and movement. . . .


I sent your "This I Believe" essay around to all my spinning friends here in the North Country last month. I was overwhelmed with positive comments! Thank you for writing that, we believe it too. Shelagh in Vermont.

Deb Robson

Thank you so much, Shelagh! Your comments (and passing around the link) mean a great deal to me. Sooner or later the audio from the radio broadcast should be posted on the KUNC website, but it seems to take a while for that to happen.
