Excerpts from some of the letters and messages sent in by RRI's listeners.
one of my favourite programmes. It was interesting to hear about the September
Traditions and holidays for Virgin Mary's Sermons in October. What I find most
interesting are the local customs - like cooking special items, gatherings,
rituals like hair cutting, special dresses, etc, associated with these
holidays. I sometime assume that these customs are pre-Christian and very
unique to Romania, which have been wonderfully blended/adapted to Christianity.
I look forward to more such interesting information on upcoming episodes of
Roots. Another favourite show is The Cooking Show - thanks for
mouth-watering dishes. The latest episode on Romanian pastries made of palm
jams was a very interesting one. Both Roots and the Cooking Show provides a
wonderful window to look into traditional and contemporary Romanian society."

"I would like to
take this opportunity to express how happy I am with how you are handling
broadcasting DRM on Shortwave." (John Lakeland, UK)
"I often listen
to Radio Romania International. You have interesting programs and information
about Romania. Also, Romanian music is exotic. [...] Your signal is very strong
here in Finland. Many shortwave stations have stopped broadcasting in Europe
and also in the world. I hope that Radio Romania International continues
shortwave transmissions." (Risto Happonen, Finland)
"Thank you once
again for the interesting an varied programming which I heard. I very much
enjoy listening to your Roots program - it is fascinating hearing about
varying aspects of Romanian culture." (Elisabeth Milewicz-Tyson, Australia)
like classical music and information about Romanian classical performers. I am
a lifelong classical music listener. Your signal to Northern California has
been exceptionally good during the last week." (Daniel Hawkins, USA)
I particularly enjoyed the segment about health and respiratory benefits of
travelling down into salt mines. I had no idea. Thanks for the broadcast."
