We are on fire! No…not the plane or the studio (yet) but it seems like the entire western USA and Canada are covered in wildfires and high heat. Tony and Al are also blanketed in wildfire smoke. We huddled inside the studio to get a break and record this show. It’s our July show and we’re a bit late in the month. Luckily we still have time to release this on July 32nd.

Whew! We got our March show uploaded without a minute to spare. Someday, we'll be able to get these shows done quicker by speeding up our commute with an electric air taxi. We just need to find a charging station. Learn how in our featured interview. Plus, news, music, movies, and comedy in this jam-packed show. As always, we have a few technical issues. This time it's a bad auto-level on Al's voice. It's OK. He never has much to say anyway.....

Since this show was founded by ex-disc jockeys, we love our listeners. And since one of our hosts was once a struggling musician, we know that getting a free plug on the radio for your song (or movie) can make a big difference. So, we take requests. This month, our song suggestion came from John F. and our movie idea came from Marty D. Notice that we didn’t use their last names. There may be a reason for that. You’ll just have to listen to the show.
