The entire trip home I was trying to craft the right words… “Thank you” sounds trivial.
From our perspective, this was an amazing experience and one made even more enjoyable by the fantastic core group who support your masterful efforts. As a veteran of many a radio remote, this one was as technically sound and trouble-free as any.
You are a joy and my world is much richer for knowing you.
I can only hope we see you again soon.

I want to take a moment to thank you and your tireless staff for the excellent effort put forth for RadioRow. It was an amazing experience from top to bottom and the dedication of your staff was evident in every guest, every schedule, every bio. You all have just cause to be proud of the work you do to get liberal/progressive ideas into the the national debate. It is through efforts like yours that we are changing the direction in our country.
I hope to see you again soon.

I wanted you to know you did an absolutely stellar job with the inauguration. Thank you so much for everything you did for our show. The guests were wonderful. Thom had a great time talking to everyone that came on the program. He especially enjoyed the former Prime Minister of Ireland…as did we all! What a wonderful speaker he is.
You are the best! Thank you for everything you do.

I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work running the inaugural radio row, and for including Progressive Blend Radio in the historic event. I can only imagine all the hard work you and your crew did in order to arrange, schedule and choreograph such an amazing array of guests. We tremendously appreciate each and every guest we had, as well as the way we, being “just” an internet radio station, were treated by your folks and the guests. We’re used to being at the back of the bus, but that was absolutely not the case at the row, and for that we are truly grateful.
I’m pleased to report that, to the best of my knowledge, we were able to conduct interviews, either live or on tape, with every single guest we were provided by the row, and the feedback we got from the guests was universally positive, with many saying it was their favorite interview of the day. In fact, we’ve already been inundated by guests asking when we can provide them with a copy of their interviews. For us the event was an unmitigated, unqualified success, and we thank you profusely for everything you did to help make it that way.

September 15 2008: Just wanted to say, I thought you were incredible! How you managed to perform at the convention so brilliantly, let alone perform at all is an amazing thing to me. You must have been exhausted afterwards. I hope you’re recovering and taking some time for yourself.

Kandy what a marvelous job you did at the Denver Convention (as always)! What a zoo, yet you made order from the chaos while assuring best message.

I just want to say thank you, for all you hard work. Our presence there at the Denver Convention was a complete success with your help.

The key to talk radio is the booker–the person who books the appearances and coordinates the advance work with the hosts. In my case, that person is Kandy Stroud…there’s none better in this business. After her bookings this morning, Carrier’s Amazon rating shot up from 900,000 to 40,000…
After 30 years in business, I’ve found that people who are in fact everything that they claim to be and who do exactly what they promised to do, are too damn few. But Stroud is one of the few. She does what she says she will and she does it better than anyone. She is completely professional and she delivers. I can think of no higher compliment.—Richard Miller, author, conservative Republican
I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for all of the help you have given me these past couple of years. You arranged some terrific guests for my show and helped make it entertaining and informative for my listeners. I’m sure the folks at the DNC will really miss you as will I and all of the others you have helped so much. You are a real pro and that is rare nowdays.

You are simply amazing. The quality, depth, and consistency of the guests you secure for our show truly make an enormous difference for our listening audience. Regardless of topic, you have an uncanny sense as to whom would be the prefect fit each and every time. It ignites the show, energizes Mitch the host, and positions us to have our show clearly a “cut” above our competition.
If you were a baseball palyer, your “batting average” would be in that untouchable stratosphere of .400. You are a delight to work with and make my job a literal cake-walk in this trecherous business of ours. And you make it appear so effortless. I, more than anyone, know how stressful it can be.
I will never be able to thank you enough.
