AM 540 AM August 20 – 25

Where I am is of less moment now that the number to call to participate is always (888) 579-2540/(888) KRXA-540.  For those wondering, this is my last week in Maryland for a while as my return to the Monterey Peninsula is scheduled for this Saturday night.

We’re finally getting a respite from 90+ degree days here as the daytime highs have settled into the low to mid-80s.  More proof of course that global warming is a hoax.

As always, we ask that you please forward this newsletter to any friend, relative, acquaintance, casual contact, frenemy, enemy, or nemesis, whom you think would enjoy learning about KRXA.

Don’t forget to become a facebook KRXA Five Forty Friend at or simply type fivefortyfriend into your Facebook search bar.

Here’s what’s on tap and do expect last-minute additions as always.  Throughout the week expect the focus to be squarely on the November elections.
