Listener Request - August 27, 2011
I am a full time single mom and college student working part time to make ends meet for me and my six-year-old boy. I am so thankful for my parentsâ€™ support, or I wouldnâ€™t be able to do it. Recently, Iâ€™ve been hearing your show during my long weekly car rides and it has brought back a lot of old good memories of growing up. My family would always have your countdown on while we did our household chores, and I can remember wishing and praying that my favorite would make it to number one. Well, Iâ€™m still listening and wishing for my favorites to make it to number one. One big favorite from the 90â€™s was Reba McEntireâ€™s â€śTake It Backâ€ť. It would be so great to hear it on your program once again.

When we finished with college, my husband and I were married and began planning our lives. We both wanted a big family, but it just didnâ€™t seem to happening for us. We tried, for 12 years, to have children. Then, seven years ago, we were introduced to another young woman who was pregnant and looking for a family who could adopt her baby. She turned out to be a child with special needs. Not at all what we had planned, but it felt just right and our daughter, Addison was born 3 months later. Ever since Billy Curringtonâ€™s â€śGood Directionsâ€ť came out, my husband has danced with Addison every time itâ€™s come on the radio. And when it comes on in the car, she asks if we can call daddy so he can sing it to her. No question itâ€™s their song. Please play â€śGood Directionsâ€ťâ€¦ I would love to watch my husband and his little girl dance together in the living room once again.
