From: "Massimo Ferro" <highway61@interfree.it>  Media Copy: 'Songs For a Better Planet Volume II'    …    some days ago I received a copy of "Songs For A Better Planet, Vol. II" and I now want to thank you so much for sending it to me. It is again a very fine and pleasant compilation and I immediately started playing it in my radio shows here at Radio Voce Spazio, as you can see from the alleged playlist. That CD will become an essential part of my musical diet and more songs from it will surely follow on air in the next weeks of course. In the meantime let me please thank you once again for your kind attention and wish you all the best for Christmas and the New Year! Yours,  Massimo Ferro  www.highway61.it

FROM: mike <mikepenard@wanadoo.fr> RE: Mike the DJ, Mike the Frenchy, RADIO ISA, France Bonjour Brian,  Thanks for the very good musical compilation and above all for the good  fight. My daughter who is 20 is stuying environment protection so I am  more than informed on these problems. It is a very good thing to hear  voices coming from your country as you know your gouverment is not the  most active country for fighting pollution (Kyoto Treaty…) From here , USA don't give the feeling that they are ready to try to  change something in their way of consuming. But I 'm sure that with  time, men will have to change … Back to the music. I would say in this very particular case , the music  is just the background of a international cause. Honestly I didn't find a weak song , I didn't also find one  that is really above the others. I will air all of them from time to  time and I always give the translation to people to be sure they can get  the meaning .. Thanks again for the good music and highest congratuations for trying to do something to preserve this planet. Take care Mike from Lhuisiana, PENARD Mike c/o ISA Radio,  FRANCE


FROM: SHeartfiel@aol.com RE: Peace Songs for a Better World Hi Brian,  Thanks for sending me a copy of Song for a Better Planet. It's  important to me to have as many topical songs on subjects like ecology for my radio program. I have played and/or will be playing Global Warming Blues; For Whom; Pesticide Song; and The Air. Thanks again. Harlon Joye, Fox's Minstrel Show – WRFG, Atlanta, GA

FROM: Arthur Elliott <aw.elliott@qut.edu.au> RE: Peace Songs For A Better World Brian – At last I have had the chance to listen to this CD. All I Can Say is :"Wow!"   Actually, I CAN say more than that. The CD comprises an inspired choice of  songs and artists, many of whom I have emailed to obtain some further  examples of their work. Congratulations on a fine outcome for this great  cause. I am thinking of featuring the CD on an edition of my programme soon. Regards, Arthur Elliott. "Sidestream" 99.7FM Brisbane, Australia.

FROM: Michel PENARD <MikePENARD@wanadoo.fr> TO: Peace Songs For a Better World <mastermail@abetterworld.ca> RE: Mike the DJ, Mike the Frenchy Dear Brian, So good to hear from you, to get good music and to see you involved in  such an association. Hope you are fine and ready for a real canadian winter…Here nothing  really new. Thanks so much for the CD. I can't say all the tracks fit my format but  some are OK. I have selected tracks 1,2,6,8 and 11 to be on the air from  tomorrow. I remind you my own and special way of airing music. I prefer to air songs by turn and only from time to time . When songs  come on my playlist, it is for a very long time butt they can be 2 weeks  on the air, disappear one month (or even more) , come back , there is no  precise rules , just the musical spirit of the program of the day. Once agai thanks for all. The Froggie send you a friendly "CROAK"! Please confirm you have got this email. Thanks Take care Mike PENARD Mike c/o ISA MILIEU FRANCE
