John S.
We have John from Queens
John, you're on the air, hello?
I think we lost John

Drew M.
Leonard Lopate's voice
Covers the walls of my room
Like shag carpeting

 

Beata M.
That familiar voice
Soothing yet provoking thought
Thanks, Leonard Lopate! 

Leonard, a True Friend (Anna M.)
You make me laugh and
You share nifty facts with me
Without you, work sucks

Sara L.
Asking liltingly
Gentle and intelligent
In a sea of calm

Selma S.
The man knows something
About almost everything
Our Super-Maven!
 
Deb R. in London
Waterloo Station
Lopate podcast in my ears
Oh, I miss New York!

Anna
You make me laugh and
You share nifty facts with me
Without you, work sucks

Sara
Asking liltingly
Gentle and intelligent
In a sea of calm

Amy
Books food NYC
World affairs, our Leonard is
Truly erudite

James
Slyly he questions
A cool detachment is feigned
Leonard gets answers

Philip
Leonard Lopate, you
Stimulate thoughts so alive
Between noon and two.

My Radio Friend!
Here’s to the next twenty-five
Best wishes I send!

Fay
Brian gets first crack
By noon what is left to say?
Leonard always knows

Thomas
What makes him unique?
Well as far as I can tell
He reads the whole book

Justine
Anomie, the blues
Megrims, bored, but Click! Leonard!
Mind and soul restored

Selma
Thanks for having me
Prince of grand interviewers
So nice to be had!

Patty
Ah, Leonard Lopate.
Sometimes I want to smack him.
But not that often.

Peter
Always at midday
To our enduring delight
Leonard's on the air

Leonard must be plain.
If he were better looking
He'd be on t.v.

Deborah
Lennie Lopate's voice
soothes us and provides us with
info we should know.

I can't tell if its
Lennie or Brian on air
Both inform with flair.
