Just Some Of The Many E-mails Received About Me,
My Show & My Websites .........
"Hi Richard: Just want to say Hi and hope everything is going ok. You had another good show this Thursday. I never heard the Russ the Drunken Barber song before that was funny. You are always picking out something unusual and fun to listen to. Boy are we having a great winter here in Southgate, MI the temps have been in the 40 s and just some rain. Any snow we get melts right away. Hope you are having good weather in Delta Ville. God Bless and stay well."
"Hi Delta: THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU !! I received the CD of Your New Year Show yesterday (Wed). It sounded so much better then I imagined it. I played it as soon as I received it. Then like you said you aired it again on 247 and all the bugs were taken out. The Cd sounded so much better on my little Bose Radio than it sounded on the internet. I guess I should get better speakers. You really out did yourself on this New Year Show, better than last years. Thank You again for sending it to us. If you ever need anything please feel free to ask."
"Hi Delta, We just got done listening to your show and WOW, what an honor to have our whole CD featured. I called our guitar player from Illinois and had him tune in as well. I think he was impressed. You sure do a great job and we want you to know we do appreciate all you do for us. Keep up the good work, I know folks love listening to your show."

"Hi Delta: We listen every Thursday morning, your show really gives our day a good start. Your show is the only one on the internet that provides such a variety!! We love the funny songs you play. You do not just play polkas, but music from many genres. That song 'I Don’t Look Good Naked Anymore' and 'Don't Squeeze My Charmin' we can relate to. Also the PSA are very informative. It is the fastest hour show that we listen to. I love the stories you tell and news about the lake. Have a Merry Christmas to you and your family and a Happy New Year !!

"I enjoy your Webpage and check it quite often."
"Dick, Your Webpage looks fantastic. Wow, what a talent you have. I am very impressed."

"Love your show !!"
"Dick, You said everything I believe in. As what Rush would hear, "dittos"..."
"Delta Dick; You're the authority. You're the man when it comes to finding those blasts from the past.....some that we would think were obsolete."
"Nice job Delta Dick."
"Hi Delta, I'm listening on Wed on March 30, and you just played the most beautiful German song. I think it's Aba dich (I'm Polish, so I'm guessing at that :)"

"Dick; Congratulations on your new site!"
"Dick: Every time I check your site there is something new. I am impressed!"
"Dick, It was great seeing you as well. My wife and I went to the 50th Anniversary party for North Ambulance Service tonight. I saw Chuck Lindstrom, Mike Murphy, Ricky Karnitz, Ron Robinson, and a great many of the old North paramedics. I brought your name up to many and they of course recognized the famous name behind the dulcet tones of the great Dick Odoms. You are a legend."
"Heard from Brandi Yaeck's sister how nice you were to put her benefit info on your Website. What a nice gesture."
"Hello Dick, I am Judy Feltmann, you stopped by my house to drop off your CD, business card and donation. I want to follow up today by first saying "THANK YOU" for the generous donation of the Gift Card.

RETIRED CAVER COUNTY SHERIFF BUD OLSON SAID THIS .....
"Dick: Thanks for your public service; you do so much and probably don't get recognized for any of it. But, you are a wonderful asset for Carver County and Hamburg and for your radio listening community; you're just a great guy. Thanks so much."
"My prayer would be more Dick Odoms' would rise up and get involved in their lives, in their communities and in our way of life! Our future needs courageous leaders who are not afraid to “challenge” the process and our leaders. America needs our involvement more than ever because of the polarizations that is taking place at all levels of government and our lives. I have tried to think of any part of my life where government in NOT involved in some way, shape or form. While I believe we cannot live without “the people” looking out for each other, I believe we have created a monster that has an appetite we cannot sustain. Something has to give……"
"Thank you for taking such an interest in the Office and my journey. It has been enjoyable to connect and reconnect over the years."
"Wishing you Life’s Best today and everyday !! Many blessings in the New Year."
Byron 'Bud' Olson, Sheriff of Carver County, Minnesota (Retired)

"Hi: My name is Wendy and am originally from Hamburg. My dad used to be the postmaster in the 1950's-1960's. I was wondering if anyone has any photos of the old public school or teacher Miss Hildur Carlson? We moved from Hamburg when I was 12 but I attended the school up until then and would love to see photos or make copies as I have none. Thank you for your help."
