The Morning Show May 14 – 19

My final week in Maryland this month coincides with the final week that Stephanie will be on 6-8a.  Starting Monday May 21, Coach and I will kick off your morning drive at 6 with AM 540 AM or some such morning show.  Let us know what moniker you favor.  And, for the Miller diehards, Marcia in Santa Cruz made an excellent suggestion: “Consider airing Stephanie in the evening.”  So, we are.  Check out the poll at our home page and let us know if you would like to hear Ms. Miller and her gang in the pm and, if so, where.

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.

  1. Frank in San Diego says:

    Hi, Hal.

    What’s up with the seven minutes of silence every hour today?

  2. Couch says:

    Frank, I told Hal using subtitles on radio wouldn’t work. “The Silence is Golden News” by our Hearing Aid sponsor needs some fine tuning…Thanks for trying to listen…Coach KC

    As an early morning commuter (6:30 am) from Marina to Santa Cruz, I look forward to the Miller show am most disappointed by this change. Moving the Miller show to the evening will not help at all unless you move it into the 5-6pm slot (the next commute hour.) Although I have been a longtime listener of KRXA (and supporter of KRXA sponsors), I find that way too much of the Karel show is about him personally and, although I may be interested in his political point of view, I’m really not interested in his personal life; For that reason, once I gave up on trying to find the few minutes of substance in his show, I finally just stopped listening and switched to other stations on the commute home. Perhaps you could reconsider the schedule and put Miller into the late afternoon time slot and moving the Karel show to a later time. That way, commuters (probably the station’s most listened to time) will be able to listen to Miller, still, once a day. Otherwise, I most likely will be cutting out my listening altogether, I suppose, and that’s sad (for your sponsors, too.)

  4. Just Joe says:

    Steph gets plenty of air time, happy for a refreshing change to the morning show. Welcome aboard, happy to have the both of you.

  5. John says:

    Hal- glad you got rid of her-She’s a lovely gal but that show of hers was so tired and predictable- and that inane laughter just became like a presence of cheap perfume that gives you a headache. I’m sure you and Coach will come up with interesting on-point material after you start rolling. Thanks for the station as overall it very much has a place here.
