Dear Sir: Nothing works the imagination like Home Companion. What a wonderful gift you have given us all these years. How disheartening that the true magic of radio lives - but it your show. Gentle, fulfilling, nourishing, may Home Companion never takes its leave, and maybe, maybe one day it can come to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Two-thirds of life are behind me, but I am content to wait.
