AJ & McCall 11/30/18

McCall has quite an interesting collection of something she took from her old work...paperclips. All kinds of shapes and colors, she has them, and she isn't alone in that. What have you 'borrowed' from work? This weathers brings on one of AJ's pet peeves and a listener actually left us a message to do a PSA about it. Turn on your headlights! It's not that hard, but to clarify and see if that's the issue, when do you think headlights should be on? Tomorrow is December and AJ & McCall are starting to feel in the Christmas spirit but McCall needs traditions to steal for the Debate At 8. How do you celebrate the holidays, what are your traditions? Maybe movies are a big part of your Christmas traditions but McCall came across a list that is terrible for top Christmas movies and it needs to be fixed.

AJ & McCall 11/29/18

This weekend features single digit lows and yesterday we got snow so your heater is definitely on right? AJ believes that first heater bill when you're out on your own is a right of passage and man did he learn the hard way. McCall has a warning and a rant when it comes to Christmas present puppies, they're not just for the holidays. And we're about having solutions too but parents can't ruin their gift surprise, so AJ & McCall ask the kids what they want for Christmas. The Debate At 8 started about driving arrangements when it comes to road trips and errands but instead turned to women and trucks after a caller said McCall should never drive Dustin's truck. AJ doesn't agree with anything he said, minus one small point he made about the seat. 2018 isn't over yet but we're in the home stretch. What awesome thing did you do in 2018?

AJ & McCall 11/26/18

AJ is back from Thanksgiving weekend, a day late, but he's back. When you travel you have to come up with those sleeping arrangements and normally are excited to come back to your bed BUT what is better; your bed or a hotel bed? AJ is a day late because his car broke down but is lucky he didn't break down at any of the miles of no where he drove through, and McCall says she's lucky with her break down story also. Where did you break down? Both AJ & McCall's Christmases are already done for this year but for entirely different reasons. A different Debate At 8 because you tell us who is worse.

Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for all that we have and all we get to share it with, but that's tomorrow.

AJ & McCall 11/20/18

Everyone agrees that facial hair makes men look better, that's a no brainer, but what about the new holiday trend beard decorating? Ladies would you like it and fellas would you even try it?

AJ & McCall: Car Mods Debate @8

We're not breaking any news by saying it's cold and it's only gonna get colder.

It's a three Wednesday week (today is Wednesday because there's only 3 days before the weekend) and we're oh so close to Thanksgiving.
