The last word

"It's kind of like a home shopping network on radio. Folks call in to let us know about their yard sales, and we end up talking about their plans for the weekend."

_ June Taylor, disc jockey on radio station WINV-1560 AM, on the station's daily Trading Post feature. Listeners call in and sell or swap items.
