   I wanted to extend a special thanks to Krafty Krepes and especially Manager Athena Borrego for offering to display the new SanDiegoRadio.Org License Plate Frames in their SDSU shop. 

   They offer delicious crepes, wraps, salads and smoothies. 

   Two locations,  SDSU on Lindo Paseo, and on Prospect in La Jolla.

Thanks again for your support of both radio and SDR!

   Yesterday I went to Santee Coffee Corner, title sponsor of SanDiegoRadio and shop owner Duane told me someone dropped off a very generous donation by way of a gift card for coffee.

   I really do appreciate that kind gesture. I don't know who you are, but THANK YOU!

KSON To The Rescue

By Joe Nelson


From Chris Turner, KSON:


John & Tammy got a call from a listener Kate who was telling them what a great time they had at the Jason Aldean concert~~and mentioned that they found a man's wedding ring. 


   John and Tammy aired the call and, off air, got some very specific information about the ring.   About 30 minutes later I'm sitting in my office and I get a call from "Pamela" who says a friend heard John and Tammy talking with someone on air about finding a wedding ring and her husband had lost his at the show.  Got her number, Morning show called Kate and Pamela live on the air (well, taped!!) and asked Pamela to describe the ring and the inscription inside. 

   She said it was gold band, square diamond with the inscription "all my love" written inside.  Perfect match!
