AM 540 AM December 3 – 7

December is here.  I just got a nice message from Matt Renner who worked at KRXA with Peter B. Collins during our first couple of years in operation. Amazingly I met Matt well over seven years ago.

We’ve got great guests lined up all week.  Understandably, calls tended to be sparse in our first hour.  If you call then, you’ll have the best chance to talk to us for a few minutes rather than 30 to 60 seconds.

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.

Expect as always the unexpected on AM 540 AM – including last-minute guest additions to the lineup.
