From a Radio Listener
My fondest memory is of a station manager who called me. I seldom had such contact because I avoided it, seeing as my spoken French was so inadequate. He said he thought I would like to know what was happening at his station (the range of his signal reached over a million people.) One night a beleaguered volunteer, the only one on duty, didn’t listen to the programs playing as she had been left with too much work to do. The listeners heard one of my stories entitled The Good Samaritan.
A listener called and asked the volunteer what that man had done who was a patient in The Good Samaritan Hospital. She confessed she didn’t know because she hadn’t the time to listen. The caller said he was desperate to know because he, too, like the character, had terminal cancer and he wanted to overcome his cancer like the character did in the story.
She apologized. But, she said, she would take the station off the automatic programming, she would announce to the listening audience what the caller wanted, and tell them she would now replay the story The Good Samaritan. That way the caller could take notes on what to do to overcome his cancer.
The station manager said the volunteer did just that, and for the last two months the station had received over 200 calls from people thanking them for re-playing the story, because now they were healed. The healings were of all varieties of ills, not just of cancer. And yes, six weeks after the re-play the man who made the initial call, called again to report he had been totally healed of the terminal cancer.
