The that allows you to buy, sell, and trade isn't going to lay out the decorations for Halloween.

We open the phone lines and the airwaves for you use every Saturday morning from 9-12.  It's want ads on the radio and we've always got a seat open for you.


We ask all our callers a poll question before they give their items.  Sometimes whimsical and other times out of left field, occasionally the question is topical and that is the category this week's question fell.

With Halloween quickly approaching those celebrating the holiday are well involved with their preparations.  We were curious if you would be laying out the cool decorations or were taking a pass on the holiday.

Do you decorate for Halloween?

Yes 12

No 22

It doesn't appear the costume supply store will be frequented by many Trade-A-Thon listeners.  Personally I only decorate for Christmas and Dallas Cowboys games.

Rule #6

At the beginning of each hour we go over the Erwin Pawn Trade-A-Thon rules.  They help everyone both know how it works and how to keep things running smoothly.  Along with the five regular rules, I always bring you a special rule #6 that changes every week.

Sometimes inspired by something I said, did, or saw over the previous week, it's somewhat an attempt at poor man's observational humor.

Along Brennan Boulevard, located in proximity to my Fortress of Solitude, the city has been taking out trees in the middle of the street.  This is somewhat of a tragedy, especially if you're a tree.  I investigated one of the felled trees and found it infested with beetles.  A bona fide shame.  It inspired this week's rule.

Rule #6 Protect your trees against pests.  We suggest calling our friends at Panhandle Green House.

An ounce of prevention, yada yada yada.

See you Saturday for another Erwin Pawn Trade-A-Thon.
