As we close out 2016, and look toward 2017, there are some people who need to be thanked. In the day-to-day hustle and bustle, sometimes we forget to thank those people who make our blessings possible.
First, I want to thank our dealer affiliates from coast-to-coast for living up to the promises I make on the air. Without them, there would be no Car Pro Show. You guys and gals do a great job.
Next, there are a lot of people behind the scenes of the show who produce, direct, coach, edit, keep our website running smoothly, and the list goes on and on. Many thanks to Tom Haynes and Tom Hansen, and the staff at Acuity Strategy who make my life easier, and our managing editor and task master, Amy Plemons. Also, thanks for Tom Wilson my pro bona proofreader who helps to make me look smarter.
Of course, my trusty, musty, rusty, crusty sidekick, Kevin McCarthy. I’ve had to do a few shows solo and I can tell you that five straight hours of talking can be grueling. Kevin takes a load off, thanks buddy. He had the vision back in 2001 to see the need for a radio show likes ours, and give me the courage to make it happen.
I thank our radio affiliates and the people there who put us on the air every weekend. We are blessed to be on some of the top stations in the country, and looking forward to adding Boston and New York in the first quarter of next year.
I want to thank our Military, our police and fire, EMTs, and all those out there who keep us safe and help us maintain the freedoms we enjoy, but too often take for granted.
I want to thank our listeners and newsletter subscribers, our Facebook and Twitter friends, for without all of you, there is no show. The trust and faith you put into the things I tell you is awe-inspiring.
And last, but certainly not least…my family, especially my wife Kelly who has stood with me through the loss of a child, cancer, and congestive heart failure all in the past few years. Love you honey, thanks for everything, most of all for being beside me through thick and thin.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and get to spend time with your loved ones. Mend riffs, cherish your time together, hold your family a little tighter and a little longer. Check on your neighbors, love your pets. Be thankful for your blessings, no matter how big or small. Remember, too, no matter what your problems may be, somebody has it worse off.
Thank you for listening to the Car Pro Show.
