You made a mistake in your article. You said the song in French that Horace did was "vien me touche" which meant come get me, but vien me touche really means come touch me. The song that he sang was come get me but in French it is "vien me chercher"

Bonjour Paul. I'm Paul Marx, owner of KBON. I want to thank you so much for your kindness. I am so happy you enjoy what we do here. I have had the idea for this type of music format, featuring local music daily, for several years before KBON, I was told by every station I approached with the idea that it would never work, that people wouldn't listen to local music every day. Boy, how wrong they were!!

Again, thank you for your wonderful articles. I hope you & I get to meet next time you are this way.

Thank you, Derek,
Getting is right is important to me. I'll correct the title. How long have you been listening to music - I assume you speak and understand the French lyrics.How did you find my story?
Thanks for taking the time to correct the story.

Bonjour, Paul,
I loved my visit to KBON. I've wanted to see where all that great music that I heard on my first trip to Louisiana in 2008 came from. Now when I listen online I can picture the broadcast booth and surroundings - even imagine I hear Phil or Todd singing along with the music.

I look forward to meeting you on a future trip to Eunice.
I'd love to watch you say "Louisiana Proud KBON 101.1 FM, Mamou, Eunice, Ville Platte, Opelousas, Lafayette, et...Tous Le Monde!"
Thanks for your note.

Todd Ortego

Very nice work my friend, on all the stories I've read that you penned.
Keep in touch.

Another excellent piece, Paul.

Paul, you are indeed going to have the world knocking at our door. Your love and appreciation of the culture here in "Cajun/Zydeco Country" shows in every word you write. So many of us from other parts of the country feel this way, and you write it so beautifully.

Thank you.
