AM 540 am June 11 – 15

I remain in MD all week so the bi-coastal funs continues.  Call (888) KRXA-540/888-579-2540 to join AM 540 AM 6 – 9 am Pacific on AM 540 in Monterey and Santa Cruz and at everywhere.

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.
