Note: The following quotes were lifted from the article and moved to this Discussion page, since they were inappropriately placed into the article in an overreaction of making a supporting argument in favor of the notability of Gallegos' productions. This section cites 3rd party references to the notability of Gallegos' work, to include ThoughtAudio. It was added in response to that page's nomination for deletion because of insufficient notability of the writer, not for the purpose of advertising ThoughtAudio as a site for the worldwise distribution of free audio books, as produced and narrated by Gallegos, to the general public
