Once Upon a Time in Venezuela (Well, a Year Ago)

Longtime ApologetiX fans know we got a suprising amount of airplay in Venezuela in 2004, with numerous ApologetiX parodies sometimes occupying the top 10 simultaneously. Recently, Jorge Po, the DJ who introduced us to Venezuela, sent us his look back at 2004.
"It was a year ago when my town get shocked through your music, It was a year ago when my town first heard about Apologetix ('Look Yourself' was the first single we added to our station and it quickly get the #1 in our Top 10 for about 32 weeks).
"It was a year ago when your music comes out blowing the mind and hearts of our listeners giving them (and ourselves) a new way of listening to music, not just enjoying the rhythm but truly paying attention to the lyrics and getting concious of many things, causing a reflection in our way of living, and in a certain way making our minds just brand new.
"It was a year ago when we grabbed in our hands a powerful tool to spread the gospel of God in a new way: THROUGH YOUR MUSIC!!! And as 'Look Yourself' song says: 'I cannot grow cold when hell is hot, this way is their only opportunity to find God.' (Those lines become a statement for the staff of DESPERTAR 100.5 FM)
"So, guys, thanks because it was a year ago when you started helping us to get people save and reaching them to the Kingdom. And remember Do NOT keep the Faith, Spread it!!!"
P.S: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
