Hi Wade,

Don't want to be on air, just want to drop you a line and say hi and thank you for being helpful in my early development as a broadcaster. Thanks for helping with my voice work. I've gone on to be a successful public relations professional for more than 20 years. Yep, a far cry from KNEU and that "Ross Nessman" incident...remember? Fred did have a way of making us laugh.

You keep up the good work at Sirius and Billboard! I've enjoyed seeing you from time to time.

Your colleague,
Ross

Wade, Love your shows. Please play a little more of Charlie Louvins songs. Keep up the good work. Happy Thanksgiving! Darrell, Rogersville, Tn.

I enjoy your show so much! I listen to it on Roadhouse everytime it comes on. Classic country is my favorite!!!

Hello Wade I enjoy your show and listen to it all the time. I've learned alot about the music and singers from your show.But today I missed the name of a song by Johnny Paycheck, it was about the fella that was turned away at the church and sat down on the steps to pray. I've been trying to get the name of this song for years. I would be ever greatful if you could e-mail the song title to me. Thank you so much and keep up the good work, oh and I wouldn't mind if you played alot more of Hank The Great.Thanks again. cliff

WADE, COULD PLEASE LET ME KNOW THE SONG AND ARTIST TO THESE LYRICS. THE SONG IS FROM THE 70'S ? -- LISTEN TO IT ON A JUKE BOX -- THINK IT WAS A DUET -- 45 RECORD?.

LYRICS:

EASE UP ON THE HURT
EASE UP ON THE PAIN
WELL I GOT A FEELING IT WON'T BE LONG
TILL YOU WON'T HAVE ME, TO PUT THE HURT ON

GOOD BEER DRINKING - CRYING - COUNTRY SONG

Wade, I really enjoy your Roadhouse show and also the weekend "Rearview". Your knowledge of country music is phenominal. I still remember listening to you on KSLT in Salt Lake City back in the mid 80's. And later at WSM in Nasvhille. I'm probably one of your oldest living fans!! I retired to Arizona a few years back. It's really great to be able to turn on the radio and listen to your daily show on Sirius XM. Would enjoy hearing from you sometime.

Wade, Was in heavy traffic Thurs afternoon (9/24)when you played "Guilty". I couldn't catch the artist. Could you please respond with that name? Or maybe play it more often so that I have a chance of hearing it again.
Thanks, CJ

Wade, Please play "Whole Hog or None" and/or "Good ole Alabam" by Curly Williams and his Georgia Peach Pickers. My Dad wrote these songs, Waymon D. Masters. He played with Hank Williams in Montgomery before Hank made it big. Hank was playing 2 night clubs and Dad was in his band. When Hank became a hit, he got my Dad an audition with Frank Rose of Acuff/Rose at Columbia records. Got some good stories about Hank, my Dad, R.D.(Sonny Boy) Norred and so on.

Hi Wade- I live in the Northwest Territories, way up there in Northern Canada and I listen to your show every time it is on. Love the history of country music and have enjoyed it all my life.

Right now I drive a cab on night shift five nights a week and all my customers love the country music I play. Like American express, I don,t leave home without my Sirius radio.
Keep up the good work and send a dedication to all the fans north of "60" once in awhile.

Hi Wade
I have just discovered your show on xm tv. I love listing to your show especially when you play Faron Young . I heard Faron Young sing "He stopped loving her today" by George Jones. I was wondering if you have that song and could play it. I was also wondering if your going to do a tribute to Faron young on your next Saturday show? Keep up the great work and Thank you

Good Afternoon, Wade!
I just wanted to let you know that you do a SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALADOCIOUS JOB!!! It is always a pleasure to listen to you and the wonderful information about the artists, the songwriters and the songs. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK! I have been an XM fan for almost 3 years. I listen to you at home and in my pickemup. :)

I use to listen on direct to Wade on Road House and now I see he is gone. Did he change to a different station. I miss the road house music. My son said he is not on sirus either,

Wade,
Been listening to your show for a quite a while and enjoy it completely. Would like to request a couple songs that either I've missed or hasn't been played, if you would allow me too.
The first is Porter Waggoner's/ Satisfied Mind and the other would be Willie Nelson, Roger Miller and I believe Ray Price's /Old Friends.
Thanking you in advance and keep up the good work

Wade,

Thank you for always mentioning John Huey when playing Conway Twitty music. He was a great man with a great talent, we miss him very much. Thank you for keeping him alive with the great music you play.

Wade, I enjoy your Sirius radio show. I saw the Statler Brothers on their final tour and thought it was the best concerts I have ever seen. I wish I had discovered them earlier in life. Please include them as often as possible. I hope we always pay tribute to traditional country music.

thanks rick

Love hearing you on Roadhouse. When did you leave KNEU? I used to deliver the "USA TODAY" to Fred & Earl in the mornings back in the late 80's and early 90's. You might remember me as "The Worm Lady"? I was rescued from selling nightcrawlers and have remarried. I found the old tapes I recorded from KNEU to listen to when I was camping in Whiterocks. Good memories. I have two stepsons that live in Tennessee.
