Thanks to KRML Program Director, Jim Sintetos

Jim Sintetos, program director at KRML in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, called Margit Productions to personally praise Wendell Harrison’s new release, IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME.  Mr. Sintetos mentioned that he rarely contacts the artists of CDs he receives at the station.  However, he said that he loved the album so much that he wanted to pass on his compliments to Wendell and all others involved.

I think the CD is terriffic.  I really do…and look forward to playing it on KRML

Thanks, Jim, for your kind words.  Speaking for Wendell and the gang, we really appreciate your support!
