AM 540 AM October 1 – 5

As we head into October – just one month until election day – Coach and I continue our wall-to-wall political coverage.  To aid us in this endeavor, we may even watch the first Presidential debate on Wednesday night.

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.
