Jewish Believer in Wyoming is a New ApX Fan

Wyoming is the least-populous state, with fewer than 600,000 people, but we seem to be winning them over one at a time. Last month, we told you about a Sunday-school teacher in Cheyenne WY who had discovered us. This week, we heard from a Jewish brother in Douglas WY who recently became a fan:
I stumbled upon ApologetiX at the most propitious moment, for I'm getting to the point now where if I hear "Hotel California," or "Stairway to Heaven," or "Don't Stop Believin'," or "Crazy Train" even ONE more time on the radio I'll throw a fit! However, I don't WANT to hate classic rock 'n' roll!
ApologetiX is the answer to that problem, don't you see? Hundreds of great songs from the 60's, 70's, 80's, and beyond, with Christ-honoring lyrics --- and sung by the "Mel Blanc" of the recording world who has this doppleganger-like ability to morph his attitude and his voice box into practically any shape.
Now I don't have to listen to Rick Springfield singing about how cool it would be (if he only had the courage) to break the 1st, 2nd, 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th commandments, and to betray his best friend...nor do I have to hear how fun it is to run with Satan, or travel down the road to Hell.
I admire your craft AND your perseverance. May God open up new doors and avenues of opportunity for you! And I've already begun to mention you to others (and to sing some of your refrains at work). If I were king you guys would be famous!
There are fewer folks in the whole state of Wyoming than there are in the city and suburbs of any respectable metropolis, but if you played in Casper or Cheyenne (or even in Denver) then my girlfriend and I would surely want to attend.
I'm actually from back east (originally) like you are --- was born in Ithaca, New York, raised in Alabama; and have travelled (by bicycle) all over the country (and beyond). I'm a Jewish believer, saved in '88.
You guys are so prolific: 50 songs per year is about one every week! Not even Bob Dylan writes 'em that fast (anymore). Your band is to be commended as well for the superb quality of their reproductions of the original versions of these popular tunes (many of which employ some very weird and electronically generated sounds), especially considering the sheer quantity of your output.
Well, that's about it for now. Rock on and may your larynx endure!
