Dear Elmer,
If possible could you play a song for my mom? Anything from Buck Owens. She isn’t feeling so well, and is listening to your program now as she does every Saturday night. I think she’ll be able to hear your voice………as they say hearing is the last to go. We may not have her too much longer. She took a turn for the worse, and we’re just keeping her comfortable. She loves to listen to you, and is 78 years old. Her name is Martha Sullivan from Calumet, Michigan. Our family would appreciate if you could say a kind word, and play a song for her as we feel it will brighten up her spirits! Thank you, Elmer. You do a wonderful job!

Listening in Negaunee. Thank you so much for playing Lane Dawson and Hoot Roberts for my Mom, Elaine Roose’s birthday. She loves to hear the music of Lane Dawson. What a special surprise when you played “Invitation To The Blues” by Hoot Roberts. That is one of her very favorite songs by Hoot. Thank you, Elmer. Thought you’d like to know she received a special birthday message from singer James Intveld yesterday. We look forward to seeing you a week from Wed. at the Finnish group. Drive home safely tonight.

I want to share with you an Elmer story… It was June 24 2011 and my boyfriend drive me to MGH because I was having contractions. Turns out our baby boy was going to come a few days early. Somehow his laptop ended up at the hospital and he was able to stream one of your past shows. We listened to you the whole day (it was a Friday). We had doctors and nurses very excited you were on in our room. Well needless to say our son Elden Gene was born during your show! I’m not a big country fan but Andy and I always have you on, on Saturday nights. You are kinda like family you know since you were in the delivery room and all.

Take care,
Melissa, Andy and Elden

The whole Martin gang is at camp in Au Train. Big ones and little ones! We all enjoy your program and the little kids love the song “Singing in the kitchen” Could you please play it maybe in the 8:00 hour. Also Conway Twitty and “Tight Fitting Jeans” is my favorite. We would really enjoy hearing these songs and look forward to having you on the radio as we sit by the bon fire and will be lighting off fireworks at dark.

Thanks Elmer!!!
Betty and the whole Martin family

Elmer don’t matter what you play just wish some younger folks out there would appreciate what they missed growing up to in the U P. I would hope that Todd finds a replacement for you when and if you decide to hang it up hopefully we still have you for many years to play all the old classics.

Robin Girard-Westfall wrote:
Thank you Elmer for playing our request for us. The song, “Silver Haired Daddy of Mine,” was our mother’s favorite because it reminded her of her father. Now, it reminds us of HER. The family stayed up late Saturday night to listen for it. Thank you, again. –The Girard-Westfall families.

Carolyn McDonald wrote:
Hi Elmer, I was listening and heard your gospel number at the end of the show that you played for Bob and his wife. Bob had requested a gospel number at the Jacobetti home on Wed. You played “Whispering Hope” by Skeeter Davis. Her rendition is so beautiful! I had mentioned that to you after you had played it another time to close your show. I’m glad you chose that one for Bob and his wife. My Mom Elaine and me (Karoliina) wish you a great week.

Hey Elmer,
You’ve never met me but I’ve been a fan of yours since moving to the UP twelve and a half years ago. I even know the house that you grew up in out in Kiva. I’ve got one of your cassettes and wish I had many more. Once or twice I heard you on the country radio station as a disk jockey. You are a legend Elmer! Thanks so much for accepting me as a friend (Facebook). I certainly hope you’re feeling well Elmer, you’ve been through so much. I will pray to our Savior about your health and even longer life.

In His Clutches,
Dave Grizzel

I’m from New Hampshire and love deer hunting as well as anyone out your way. Two friends, David Hinsley and Alan Brown told me all about your show…sure wish we had you on the radio in New Hampshire and in the northern Adirondack woods of New York.

Al always listens to you from his UP deer camp as well as from his other hunting location in Wisconsin. Please say hello to Al. He kills some big deer.

Thank you, Elmer, for considering this request. I would like to hear ” I can’t help it if I’m still in love with you” by Hank Williams Sr for Cindy. Thanks Again! I listen to the whole show every week!

Hi Elmer,
Thanks for taking my call recently, I know you are very busy with the radio and I must tell you that you are doing a fabulous job with the program. Every One loves your show!
I must tell you also that last Saturday night we (my sister and family) were invited to a country music jamboree just down the road from where I am staying. It is in Green Hills and the neighbors put this thing together every once in a while and invite their friends and neighbors to sing along. It was great!! They have some real talent here and sing many of the American traditional songs. They had a fiddler there also and I went to shake his hand after their part of the program was finished and discovered that he was the fiddler for the one and only Slim Dusty. This guy is amazing to say the least. He is considered the very best in all of Australia and it was a great pleasure to meet him personally. The entire evening was great and it was over by 10:00 and every one went their way. I happened to meet Stuart Watson, the fiddler for Slim, and given the idea that I listen very carefully when talking with Aussies, it is hard to determine their actual comment sometimes. I believe he said his name as Stuart Watson so I will go with that for now. If I learn differently I will correct my mistake in the next letter. Simply said– This guy is A REMARKABLE person on the fiddle and it was such a pleasure to meet and hear him. I thought of you frequently through out the evening. Thank you again for taking the time for my rambling here and also for playing a tune by Johnny Cash for your friend and mine, Ben Livingston. He so loves Johnny Cash. I will write again later and if I can I will introduce you to my friends and family here through the media of the Internet. It is 8:30 on Monday morning here as I write this to you.

Best wishes,
Wally Patterson

Elmer – I live in St. Louis, Missouri, but my wife’s family lives up in the UP, a great Yooper family in Palmer and Munising (Holly is a GREAT fan).

I would like to request Brad Paisley’s “She’s Everything”. My wife and I have been separated for most of the last 12 months due to her deployment to Central America which came within months of my return from Afghanistan. I love my wife more than anything, and would just like to see if you can play this dedicated to my Captain, Erin Melissa. She is my “everything” and I just wanted to remind her and tell the world.

Thanks for keeping the good music flowing, Elmer!

Hey Mr. Aho,
You might remember me as Dick Florence back in the middle 70′s when you taught at Gwinn. At one point I was taking 3 art classes a day from you. Well, it paid off, I’m an award winning animator, illustrator and cartoonist here in Denver and I wanted to say ‘Thanks’ and am glad to hear you’re still alive and kicking.

P.S. I has a radio show here in Denver for a couple of years on the
Classic Rock station. What a coincidence.

Take care!
Richard (Dick) Florence

Hi Elmer! I finally got hooked up on the I-net – WHEW! What a task. My computer is old & slow just like me. I really enjoy Reba, Dolly & Billie Jo Spears Trio song. I also like Alan Jackson, Patsy Cline, and some of the old – old – old timers like Bing Crosby & Hank Williams. Hope to hear some of those this Saturday! Keep ‘em comin’!!!
