stand out. You always take a stand and reach out to all people as you
reach up. I am so proud that I was listening tonight. Bless you.
You have created something very special in Reaching Up - - -
such energy and really interesting guests/information.
I really love it and tell everybody I know about it.
This is innovative and not like anything else on the air
Bless you and Celebrate Radio!
Your Haiti special was excellent and I pray that it will move
others to contribute to these people who have reached a level of
desperation that we in the United States cannot even imagine.
our information was very detailed and very helpful for people who
are still trying to find out what's happening there. We
all need to help and THEY certainly need us very much.
guest tonight (Pastor Ed Dobson) said that as a young man he had
to determine "What does God want me to do?"
I think that is something that all of us should do.
However, it is something that very few people do these
are so many distractions in our lives that get in the way of the
messages we could be receiving from the Lord. Getting back
to listening to God is my goal and I was pleased to hear
Mr. Dobson mention that.
variety of guests is just terrific and you show us sides of
these people that we did not know before.
you and Street Cats. You have a great organization. I have
been reading about you.
Was good to hear your interview with Kay Warren. What an
interesting lady and a true Christian outreach effort!
Happy Thanksgiving Day to you Mr. Fass.
know it sounds terribly American, but I had never heard
anything about the Black Hebrews of Israel. Your
interview with Eddie Butler was fascinating. What
an accomplished man! The song "You Are A
Dream" is outstanding. Thanks for introducing him
to us and all the other guests you have. Randy Gould, Los Angeles
- I enjoyed your interview with Delirious' Martin Smith and your
discussion of his Compassion Art project. This is a great
idea. It is the kind of thing that your program does so
well, telling us about aspects of performers that are not
covered by other media and that we should really all know about
you Brother Don
Marla W. Brisbane,
- Just a quick note to say that I just
realized that you have your World of Religion
program on Saturday also and I really enjoyed hearing
you today also. Your Wednesday night programs are very special and are
some of my favorites on the channel. Bless you and the Streetcats Organization
Thank you for that interview about the Samoa tsunami
Brother Don. It was good to hear the Katinas and
some kind of follow-up coverage about what has happened
there. It is typical of main stream media to
cover tragedies when they happen, but they rarely follow
up on things. Thank you for additional news.
Christiansted, St. Croix,
Dear Pastor Don,
It was interesting to hear about the mix and match
religion study. "Interesting" is the
only word I can think of to use, because I have always
gone to the same church without moving about. At
least people are going to services. You always have an informative

On this Christmas
eve, I send best wishes for a very Merry
Christmas to you Pastor Fass. May the
new year bring continued success in your mission!

Brother Fass: I have intended to write you for a
long time, but this time of year is so busy, so I
thought I drop you a note before the big day.
I really enjoy your broadcasts. The music is
always special and the guests you have personify the
meaning of love and charity. It is great that you choose
to give these people the recognition that they deserve.
I enjoyed hearing Dolly
Parton on your show tonight. In this day of
tarnished heroes and poor
role models, she is still on top. She is
funny, intelligent, talented and a good person. The Lord has worked through her and she has influenced
so many others with her kindness, determination and
Bless you for the great programs you bring us.
Dear Pastor Don, Your ministry touches us all with these
great stories and music and the Christian spirit and we
feel the care that you put into your program.
Bless you and all who work with you this Christmas time
and all year!
Dear Brother Fass,
I want to thank you for having Max Lucado on your program tonight.
I really needed to hear what he had to say about the fearful environment that
we live in. I know that God is with me, but we are so bombarded by
the fear message everyday, we are all bound to have moments when we
feel so alone and so much in danger. I think that Mr. Lucado brings
all these different things together and deals with them for what they
has been my intention to write to you all week and it
is now Friday and I am just getting around to it. I
want to tell you that not only does my family listen to your
programs, but we are very pleased to learn about your
Street Cats organization. Your group serves as a
safety net for many young people I am sure. Bless you
and your mission.
listen to you and can feel the goodness in your heart and in
your organization. It comes across in your thoughtful
interviews with so many interesting people. My wife and I
hear you every week and we are fascinated with the work of
your Street Cats - - - a unique and important cause. God’s
blessings on you all.
Geiger in Davenport,
for being there, giving us a glimpse of life in Israel.
I think in the U.S. we only have a vague idea of what Israel is
like. Hearing a person's story first-hand is very helpful
in forming a better opinion of what life is like there.
was a great tribute to your friends Brother Don. I like
Delirious and I had never heard Martin Smith interviewed
before. One of your best programs tonight.
Aviv? ? ? You are doing a world tour! This is
just great. I love Reaching Up. The stories you cover are
always interesting and I try never to miss hearing you.
Thanks for caring about these special stories.
music programs are great and I appreciate the many different
artists that you shine your light on. The variety is
something we don't get to hear anywhere else.
you and to God be the Glory!
Natalie Grant is awesome! She is the Gospel of Love!
what we need more of! Thanks for interviewing her.
in the world you are traveling, Brother Fass, I want to wish you
a Happy New Year! May 2011 bring new and exciting
adventures for you and your ministry.
ministry is unique and a blessing to me.
names Anna, I the biggest fan of your radio program, I listen to
you and, you can always learn new things and listen to great
music. And it really helps me in learning the language, because
what I read in textbooks is not a normal speech, and your radio
is giving me this opportunity, it is important to me and I want
to thank you for what you do. And I'm as big a fan of your work
would be very glad to receive any thing
with the symbols of your radio.
Perm, Russia 614105
came across your broadcast a few months ago and I want to tell
you how much I enjoy it. You have something that is really
innovative and different. It is nice to know that secular
and Christian radio has
something to offer that is not just shouting politicians and
preachers. The music and your guests make a great combination.
Bless you Mr. Fass.
could not love Dolly??!!!!!
She is a terrific person and I was thrilled that you had
her on your show tonight. This is the best
show on the air.
U have had a terrific adventure musical and
otherwise. Can't wait to hear more!
appreciate the announcement you guys did this week against hate.
It has gotten to where so-called Christian programs are all
about hating everyone and everything.
the faiths is so essential to living in this world today.
There is a value in this (as Tavis said). We all have to get
along and there are so many things we can accomplish together.
was a great guest for your program. "Folk Icon" was a
great way for you to describe him. Glad you interviewed him in a
coffee house. An appropriate place
cousin Phillip is in Japan and
we are hoping that he will be able to get out. It is a bad
situation for the people there with all the destruction,
shortages, and a fear of the radiation that you cannot see. We
are worried, but feel better knowing that he may be home very
soon. We are praying and we want to ask for your prayers for
these people in a really bad disaster. And thank you
for all you do on the air!
want to thank you for the interview you gave the director of UNICEF
tonight in New York City.
They are a great organization and do such wonderful work all
over the world. Times
are tough for all charities these days and great organizations
like this have to get the word out about what they are doing.
I appreciate that you give time to help groups like this that
are helping others so much.
God be the Glory.
may not have realized it, but you gave a great history of the
village during the 60's. It was a terribly creative
place and time and had a great impact on our culture. I am glad
to hear people talk about that time. You brought
back many memories for me tonight and I am hoping that some
people who did not know about that time got to hear you.
Boskovich's explanation of the "fear" and
"honor" syndromes that are apart of the Arab and
Israeli cultures was something that I had not thought of before.
The violence in that part of the world is perpetuated because of
these idea that are imbedded in the culture. She is doing some
great work there and I am very pleased that you did this
interview with her in Tel Aviv about Peace Child Israel. You are
always bringing new information to us about people who are doing
such great things in the world. Bless you and your
Don, Hello Friends,
the stations I tune into now is the Dutch based Big L on 1395
AM. It was great to hear your “Reaching Up” program on a
Friday night at 2200 UTC. Reception over here in Germany in the
neighbourhood of Cologne was good. On the program
"Reaching Up," I enjoyed you talking to William Paul
Young about his book "The Shack" Thank you.
will keep listening!
Drescher Rosrath, Germany
you 2nite. Like yr
program and will b listening nxt wk. Bless
is sad that there are not more programs like this on the radio.
And television is still a big waste land. I am reaching up with
you and hoping for better times.
always enjoy your Reaching Up! And I am thankful for the
ministry that you have created for the glory
of God. I
am thankful for the freedom to worship that we have in this
country. It is not that way in many parts of the world.
was one of your best programs every. You bring joy to Christian
and secular radio. It is so nice to hear a
faith-rooted program that is not stuck inside the box.
Bless you and your efforts to do something new and exciting on
the radio. I salute.
for your interview in Israel.
civilization is becoming increasingly "un-civil." I was glad
that man said that.; We as people of faith have to stand up
for the common good.
It is almost as though we are the last standing for the way of love
This discussion was refreshing and we need to hear more of this kind
of thing on the radio and on television instead of the hatred that we hear
preached so much of the time.
Your work is just the best in that direction.
We must all
work together to make this world a better place. That is what our
Jesus would want. He was a peace-maker. Some people seem to forget that.
a powerful program Pastor Fass. The music you played
was so telling of the story of South Africa and I was very
interested in the interested in Target Earth that
you guys talked about.
knew that AIDS was a serious problem in Africa, but
it has been a subject of denial for many people for a
very long time. The man you interviewed was right to
compare it to the way that Christians dealt with
with Leprosy centuries ago. It is only
truly "Christian" that we help and that we
care about others.
Tillman Ft. Wayne, IN
program is such praise to the Lord, Brother Fass. What
a testiment to the good that does and can happen in the
world! Your program tells me so much about your
organization and about the interesting people you
interview. He is worthy of praise and everything that
has breath should praise the Lord!
coverage of the events facing Africa is exceptional. I
really appreciate that you give attention to this continent
that for many Americans is only the subject of Tarzan
movies. We have to realize that the issues that these people
deal with on a daily basis are concerns of ours too because
ours is an interactive world in which everything affects
everybody. We don't live on islands anymore.
you in your work of understanding and
Dear Brother Fass,
You are the Dick Clark of Christian radio. We
have needed someone like you on radio for along time.
You bring us good music and your interviews introduce us to
interesting musicians, writers and Christian leaders.
Bless you and your work!
Hello Brother Fass. Your musical selections are always great and I really
enjoyed the interview with Darlene Zschech. You have hit upon just the right
mix of entertainment and information about what your guests are doing in their
Christian missions. I can sense your enthusiasm for what you do. Bless

- There are not many radio programs that I would make a point to listen
to every week, but I confess that I am dedicated to your Reaching Up.
The guests are always outstanding. I wanted to tell
you how much I enjoyed your Newsboys program. I particularly
appreciated the comments about addictions as my sister is suffering
terribly because of a coke addiction and I pray for her and everyone who
is dealing with this disease. Bless you and everyone at Celebrate!
- Dear Brother Don, I am a big Jaci Velasquez fan and I was so pleased that you
chose to feature her on your program. I have heard your program for three or
four weeks and you never fail to have really interesting guests. Bless you in
Michelle E. / Houston, TX
- Dear Don Fass,
I listen to you on the UCR and I can feel the compassion of you and your
organization in the way you treat your guests and in the helpful and uplifting
messages from your organization. If it is alright, I would like to make a prayer request. I lost my job last week and it is going to be difficult for me to make
ends meet for my family. I ask for God's help and guidance in finding a new job, so that my family can have a good and secure life.
- I didn't realize Jars of Clay has been around for 15 years. It was great
to hear about all these guys are doing to reach out in Christian love for people
in Africa. I listen to your interviews and the people you talk with lift me up and
inspire me to walk the walk. You are a blessing to ME this week!
- I have been listening to UCR for a good while, but I have not heard your
program until tonight. Is this new or have I somehow missed it before?
Whatever the case, I will be listening again. You have a unique concept.
Molly L Springfield, MO
- Dear Brother Fass,
I must confess my ignorance about this Pastor
Frisbee that you talked about on your broadcast. What an amazing person and
such an accomplished individual.
At first I thought your program was just going to be some fluff interviews,
but I am realizing that I can count on you to teach me a thing or two.
Congrats on a great program.
Bob R Christiansted St.Croix, VI
- I don't know if you select your topics or if some does it for you, but your
broadcasts are always well put together. Your guests are interesting and are not
only interesting, creative people, but they are also doing important things to
make a difference in our world, some of the best examples of what Christian
people should be. Thank you for sharing their experiences.
- Dear Brother Don, I really enjoy the music and the guests you have on your broadcasts. It is
not like anything else we get on radio and these Christian artists and authors
deserve a place to talk about their work and to reach out to new audiences.
Bless you in your mission. ...
