On Roger's behalf we want to say a heartfelt THANK-YOU to the State of MN, the midwest and all the listeners that he "woke up with" every morning. He truly understood that his amazing life was because of the loyalty of the people listening and the hard work from the CCO' on air personalities, news room, weather dept., sales, executives, producers, switchboard operators, etc.. Special thanks to Charlie Boone for years of hard work and friendship. We celebrate a life well lived and we can only imagine the reunion of Rogers parents, siblings and son Steve as well as so many friends and long time listeners that have gone before him. If only the signal from the transmitter above the clouds were strong enough to hear the "Good Morning Song" as Boone and Erickson find themselves together once again and the endless array of guests, interviews and comedy bits that await them.
