AM 540 AM November 5 – 9

It’s election week.  Please for all our sakes, if you haven’t already voted, vote for the most liberal viable (this means you don’t vote for Jill Stein – even if you really do know what her positions are) candidate in each race.  KRXA’s endorsements are hereCoach and I will continue our wall-to-wall political coverage.

Understandably, calls tended to be sparse in our first hour.  If you call 888-579-KRXA 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.
