Buying, selling, and trading was the goal, once again during The Erwin Pawn Trade-A-Thon.

It’s the radio show that invites you to call in and list for sell the belongings you no longer want but still have value.  We do it every Saturday from nine to noon on News Talk 940.


We ask all our callers a poll question before they give their listing.  It helps provide a theme that ties together the calls and gives the listener something other than great bargains to hear.

The first real cold front of the season has befallen us and the first freeze could happen any day now.  We were wondering what day you thought Amarillo would see its first freeze.

When do you predict the first freeze for Amarillo?

Halloween or before 13

After Halloween 14

We had three votes for Halloween and that was the most popular day.  I predicted October 24th but it looks like it may happen sooner.


We go over the rules of the show at the beginning of each hour.  It helps everyone stay on the same page.  Along with the regular five rules of conduct on the show, I always bring you a special Rule #6.  It changes every week.

This week I definitely had the cold weather on my mind.  I thought this was a perfect opportunity to get out the big coats before it got really cold.  Getting those coats out of the musty closet after an off season of storage means they are probably ready to be cleaned before worn.  I thought that made for a good rule.

Rule #6 Launder or dry clean heavy coats this week.

See you next Saturday for another Erwin Pawn Trade-A-Thon!
