As we all know, it was last March when the pandemic turned our world upside down. It’s come with a heavy toll of lives lost...and lives changed. Through it all, the videos have told the stories as people adapted to working from home, schooling from home…everything from home…and that includes us.

Last year, we moved the entire RTM studio operation into our homes so we could keep sharing the moments that bring us together. Now, all these months and hundreds of shows later, we take a look back at what’s brought a smile to our faces, a tear to our eyes and a bit of joy to our hearts…Just when we needed it most.
