This week’s show – Where is our spring weather?

Friday, May 2nd, 2014

On A Firm Foundation radio show, we try to be “seasonally relevant”, so we waited till May to schedule our spring show about home heating and cooling, the cooling version. But to everyone’s surprise, we are all still using our heating.

In any case Harold Rooks will be in at 9:00 am. to talk about air conditioning for the hot weather we will get sometime in the next 90 days or so?

Just after 10:00 am. Dr. Peter McGowan will be in to talk about the ever-amazing technology that keeps making dental care and cosmetic dental care cutting edge. There is hardly any reason any more to loose a permanent tooth or suffer from unsightly dental issues, in fact Dr. McGowan worked true miracles with Rick’s teeth even in old age!

Dental care is relevant year’round so tune into hear the whole program, this Saturday beginning at 9:00 am. locally on AM1470 WLQR, or streamed worldwide at, and also on I-Heart Radio.
