"If you’ll permit I’d like to share a listener’s perspective ‘about Chuck’. When you hit the airwaves in Calgary way, way back I thought “Who the hell is this guy?? He’s so loud, so boisterous, so in your face!”. I didn’t like you. That sentiment lasted for two days. On day three I really listened and fell in love with your passion, your honesty, your range of conversations. From that day forward I listened every single day no matter what – working, on the bus or in the car, working out, cleaning the house, in the kitchen, bathroom or garden – didn’t matter, When it was Chuck time it was not to be missed. I’ve carted around and wrecked more radios than I care to admit but no matter. I’ve laughed heartily, cried mightily and cared deeply because of the ‘stuff’ you put out there. You’ve made me a better person, you’ve pushed me forward to reach out to volunteer, to go places I never would have ventured, to speak out, to care. My kids grew up vicariously listening to you (lucky them) and they love you. They know there’s something ‘about Chuck’.We have corresponded over the years and you’ve always taken the time to personally respond. That, too, is something ‘about Chuck’. It’s more challenging these days getting opportunities to listen to you but I grab every opportunity whether (mostly) online or on my pocket radio such as it is with its duct taped together condition. So, Charles, if new online followers or listeners are wondering if they should give you a listen the answer is yes, Because, indeed, there is something ‘about Chuck’. - Mary Ann in Calgary, via charlesadler.com
