Memorial Day weekend had plenty of room for another Erwin Pawn Trade-A-Thon.

It's want ads on the radio called in by our listeners.  We do it every Saturday from 9-Noon.  It's radio totally about you and your needs.


We ask all our callers a poll question before they give their listing.  It helps us get to know them better and provides a theme that ties all our calls together.

Being Memorial Day weekend we expected a prime topic to be grilling.  Of course there is plenty of smoking and bar-b-que-ing happening also.  We were curious if you were planning on tossing some meat on the grill.  Or bar-b-que.  Or smoker.

Are you grilling this weekend?

Yes 26

No 12

As expected, outdoor cooking was very popular with our callers this week.


Along with the regular rules of the program that we recite at the beginning of each hour, I always bring you a special Rule #6.  It changes every week.  Sometimes inspired by something that has happened to me over the previous week, this week I decided to bring you a grilling tip in the name of juicy burgers.

To make the perfect hamburger you need to start with proper meat.  This means getting hamburger that has a decent fat content and not too lean.

Rule #6 For the best hamburgers use beef no leaner than 85%.

See you this Saturday for another Erwin Pawn Trade-A-Thon!
