AM 540 AM January 7 – 11

For this first full week of 2013, I want to welcome new listeners from Seattle and Portland who are joining us by virtue of the decision by corporate owners to discontinue liberal talk in their cities.  Please phone in when the mood strikes.

    Thank goodness for KRXA. I just returned from Texas, and on the drive from Houston to Dallas my talk radio choices were Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck or Dennis Praeger. 🙁 No wonder Texans remain so conservative.
