On Saturdays around News Talk 940 we buy, sell, and trade.

It’s Trade-A-Thon presented by Damron’s Pawn.  We open up the phone lines and invite you to call in your classified listing.


We ask all our callers a poll question before they make their listing.  It provides a theme that ties together all our calls and helps us get to know the caller a bit better.  Sometimes topical and other times very random, this week it was inspired by the summons I got to appear at jury duty.

When was the last time you were called to appear for the jury?

Answers mostly ranged from 6 months to 5 years with one caller claiming to having not been summoned for over 10 years.


We go over the rules of the program at the beginning of each of our three hours.  Along with the five regular rules, I always bring you a special Rule #6 that changes every week.  Inspired this week by a conversation I had with a coworker.

We were discussing how some people around the office are intimidated by my rough demeanor and unkempt appearance.  He inadvertently confirmed all self image issues I’ve had since puberty.

RULE #6:  I may not be easy on the eyes but my look is at least, easy to maintain.

See you this Saturday for an underdressed Trade-A-Thon!
