The Morning Show Sep 26 – 30

“Make new friends but keep the old” is an old song that finds fresh meaning this week as new and old friends visit us on the KRXA Morning Show.

Before presenting the lineup, I wanted to let you know that for the first time in a long while, we now have several hours open for weekend shows.  Solarzar and Kyralani are cutting back Good Vibrations Radio to two hours starting 10/1.  The show will now air Saturday nights from 7-9pm.  We may also be able to shift some of our other weekend programs around.

I have heard grumbling from some of you that the weekend lineup is too replete with infomercials.  Here’s an opportunity to remedy that problem.  As always, we are also looking for new commercials advertisers.  So, if you’d like to try your shot at hosting on KRXA or if you own, manage, or simply know of a business that would benefit from reaching our incredibly supportive listener base, please contact me (Hal) by emailing me at or call the station at (831) 394-5792.

On Friday, I remarked to Coach that one of the things I enjoyed about doing shows with him was our focus on more serious topics.  I could let go of some of the frivolity that tends to dominate our discussions Monday through Thursday.  The frivolous topics return on Monday.
