I liked this piece a lot. Simple, effective and quite charming. I thought the music throughout was great, and very well used. Maybe a little overlong? Could be 2 minutes shorter and work just as well, I think. Very enjoyable.

this is a good piece. it's rough and raw and real. it's got that realness that you don't often hear on the radio. also, a great diversity of voices that you don't often hear on public radio. great for the holidays.
two small crits: a few strong stroies would have helped. Also, it could cut really nicely into a shorter piece for other formats. right where the aretha cut comes in. but these are small points on a really good story.

What a provocative word is wish. This collage of people's wishes, hopes and dreams is perfect for a starry summer's night when one is sitting outside watching the moon rise and waiting for that first falling star. Listeners will enjoy hearing what other people wish for. Put the piece in a quiet time.

I liked this piece although the sound was a little choppy at times. I'm not sure if I like the interuption of the interviewer's voice mixed in with the answers. Overall, a nice piece.

A lovely sound collage with well-used and unobtrusive music. The interviews start out rather classic but then are often very surprising, individual, and touching. While listening, it reminded me alot of my own beginnings in the 1980's, when myself and a group of fledgling producers started making audio pieces with similiar impulses - they were open, dreamy, hopeful wishes. I wish the radio stays open. I wish this piece to fly out there and find an audience. I wish fulfilling things for the producer, I wish for more wishing.

"I wish for a laptop and a million dollars" maybe one of the most honest admissions I've ever heard. Actually there were quite a good number of people who were honest with their answers without being politically correct, but that one stuck out for me. In summary, the piece was able to capture honesty, and the credit goes to the interviewer. A sweet little glimpse into people's hearts. Well done.
