Saturday mornings on News Talk 940 we open up the phone lines, bringing buyers and sellers together.

It’s the Erwin Pawn Trade-A-Thon.  We do it Saturday’s 9-Noon.  As always, we have a spot open for you to list for sale the stuff you no longer need but still has value.


We ask all our callers a poll question before they give their listing.  The question provides a theme that ties all our calls together and helps us get to know the caller a little better.  Sometimes whimsical, this week’s Big Question was topical.

With High School and college football getting underway last week and the NFL kicking off Thursday, we wanted to know if you were ready for the new football season.

Are you ready for football?

Yes 23

No 6

We definitely live in an area where football is popular.  I’m ready for another season too.  I wish they’d play all year.


We go over the rules of the program at the beginning of each hour.  This way everyone is on the same page and knows how the show works.  Along with the regular five rules, I always bring you a special Rule #6 that changes every week.

This week I brought a rule to help you enjoy football more.  Years ago I realized I would enjoy football more if I tempered my expectations and didn’t expect my team to win every game.  Going into any given game with an open mind and with few expectations has helped me enjoy the sport more.

Rule #6 Enjoy football without expectations.

Join us next time for another Erwin Pawn Trade-A-Thon!
