When driving through, in, and around Laredo, I like to turn my radio dial to KHOY 88.1.
Why? Because as an easy listening radio station, sponsored by the Catholic church, the benefits are endless- and indeed heavenly.
Every soothing, relaxing song you could ever imagine is played on this station, all without interruptions or commercials.
All without one or two interruptions, that is.
Throughout the day, at designated times, Catholic prayers are recited and personal stories of triumph and spiritual recovery are shared.
The term catholic, after all, does mean universal, and as an Episcopalian my liturgy of choice votes for that.
And what about road rage? For those listening to this station while driving, it would be impossible to act in anger and frustration when a voice, speaking through your car speakers, quietly and reverently says,
“Gracias a Dios”.
(Thank you God).
