This week’s show – Christmas 2011!

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

This Saturday, Christmas Eve is one of the rare occasions that there will be no broadcast of A Firm Foundation Radio show, in 12 years this has only happened 11 times, due to a holiday. We wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

Attached is a photo of all the stockings hung in Pocos Playhouse, in hopes that Santa Claus will be good to all the four legged visitors to Pocos!

This week’s show – ’twas the week before Christmas…

Friday, December 16th, 2011

This is our last radio show of 2011, no show on Christmas or New Year’s Eve, so we needed to make this show count triple, and we think we have.

We have 5 great Toledo Charities that are going to check in with us starting with Dan Rogers from Cherry Street Mission, Mindy from Seagate Foodbank, Jason Copsey from the Red Cross, Bill Kitson from United Way and Steven Lopes from the Salvation Army.

You will hear first hand the services these groups are providing for Christmas, and throughout the whole year. Plus if you are so inclined during the next few weeks how you can get involved with the work that you would like to support!

The show starts at 9:00 am on AM 1470 WLQR, a podcast will be available after 11:00 am. at

This week’s show – Snow in the city!

Friday, December 9th, 2011

This Saturday A Firm Foundation welcomes Dave Pratt from the City of Toledo to the program to discuss snow removal procedures in Toledo. Snow removal in a big city is much different than in a smaller city like Bowling Green.

Dave Pratt is the director of the Department of Streets, Harbors, and Bridges and will join us shortly after 9:00 am. The show can be heard live on AM1470 WLQR, and a podcast is available for your convenience after 11:00 am. at

At Pocos Playhouse everything is ready for Christmas, the dogs stockings are hung around the office in hopes and Santa will be generous with each dog!

First the felt, then the shingles!
