The show that invites you to buy, sell, and trade didn't let something like the Tri-State Fair keep us down.

We do it every Saturday except for Christmas.  It takes a lot to stop Trade-A-Thon.  In face, the only thing that has in eight years of bringing buyers and sellers together was the absence of phone lines earlier this summer.  We weren't afraid to do the show in the face of the fair.

THE BIG QUESTION

We ask all our callers a poll question before they give their items.  It helps us get to know you better and provides a running stream of thought during the show.

Being opening weekend of the fair we had all those great fried foods on the brain.  It made us wonder what was your favorite.

What is your favorite fried fair food?

Corn dog - 7

Funnel Cake - 6

Cheese - 5

Turkey Legs - 4

Curly Fries - 2

Ice Cream, Milky Way, Corn, and Bananas all got one vote each.

My preference is the fried cheese.  It is truly heaven on a stick.

RULE #6

We go over the rules of the program at the beginning of each hour.  I also bring you a special Rule #6 that changes every week.  Sometimes inspired by something that happened to me over the previous week, this week I went with a standard disclaimer and hoped listeners understood.

Rule #6 Do not fold, spindle, or mutilate Trade-A-Thon.

Hopefully you tuned in and were gainfully entertained.  If not, give us a shot this Saturday, you'll be glad you did.
