One of the nicest things about being a WMCA DJ is receiving
your cards and letters. You make our job easier, and more fun,
by telling us what you like and don’t like. That way we can
tailor our DJ segments to your tastes. That’s the reason, too,
why we can keep the WMCA Top 21 list right up to date, week
after week. Keep up the good work! And we’ll keep on playing
the ones you like to hear, right around the clock!
