Subject: Website Feedback: I’m so happy

I love your show and have been waking up to tape it at 7am to listen to
it later. Saturday noon is good. Let’s aim for a late weeknight so I
can relax after work with your show. It is so informative and has
fabulous topics. The BEST Air America shows are EcoTalk, Al Franken and
Ring of Fire. The BEST NPR shows are Car Talk and Fresh Air with Terry
Gross. As far as I am concerned, you are one of the top radio
interviewers. Keep up the great show.

Is the show repeated any time during the week?
