Hello, to all my fellow songwriters and friends. Thanks to George Wells, they played my song "More Than A Name On The Wall" on Station KFGO in Fargo, North Dakota today at 4:00 on the Veterans hour.

It was broadcast on the internet as it was being played on the radio, so I heard it on the computer. Ed, a retired Veteran, gave the song a really nice introduction and made several nice comments about his old friend George Wells as well. ED made some really good comments about how the song affected him after it was played. He commented on what the lines, "It's your brother on your left and on your right" meant to him.

It's a pretty big station and as radio stations with wide ranges go, it's up there with the best of them, reaching up into Canada. So this is pretty big stuff for me and the song! It's so exciting to have a disc jockey think enough of something you've written to play it on their radio station. Now I can say I've had a song I wrote played on the radio. It's all little steps in the right direction but it is another step and it's all very exciting to me for sure.

It's a good thing I wasn't driving! I'd have had a wreck! I was yelling at Polly, "They’re going to play it! They’re going to play it.”

For those of you who have not heard “More Than A Name On The Wall” here is a video. Please leave comments at the comment link.

Thank you so much, George Wells.
Love, Earl & Polly
