I received a delightful email today from Austin Njoku, a loyal VOA listener in Abuja, Nigeria’s political capital. Austin titled his email, “I Am A Proud Owner Of The Most Cherished VOA T-shirt.”
And Austin writes, “At about 3:15 this afternoon, our mail runner came knocking at my office. You know what, he had a pack in his hand with your name and address and immediately I shouted, “OH! SONNY HAS DONE IT, AHHHHHH! VOA FOR LIFE!” My colleagues were wondering what was going on. They joined me in sharing the joy of being a recipient of this august gift.”
The most cherished and much coveted VOA T-shirt has been described in many ways over the years, but I believe this is the first time I’ve seen the “august” label. If you’re reading this blog, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) why it’s “VOA FOR LIFE!” for you and why you deserve the august VOA T-shirt.
