For the duration of this show, Europe became a reality, we were all there together.
I remember watching MTV's Most Wanted religiously. It was not that anybody else i knew was watching it, but i knew that all around Europe ppl would tune in on the show and share these hours together with me watching Ray how he made you forget even the shittiest day.
When ppl from all over Europe would call in to talk to him, he always had a way to make them feel better, to not feel alone, wherever they were.
When the girl from Bosnia called in and talked about the shitty day she had, in the middle of the civil war, then ray made us feel as one, the way he showed how he cared for her story, we were realizing that we were living in a world together, that right now, in that moment, ppl all over Europe felt for her and all the other ppl suffering in that terrible war, it was not just some line on the news, that was somebody like us, somebody who could be us, it was us.
Nowadays with all the different channels and news and a surplus of information, a show like that would not be possible, there is not ONE place on international channels that the youth could gather like that, with that awe and the first realization how close and small the world had become.
