6.  TASers on BRATCON radio.

Gee..we have some celebrities among us!  LOL!

If you couldn't listen to the shows live, you can listen on your own time for the BRATCON radio shows (go to: www.bratconradio.com ) for:

  • Gail Firman Porter = April 7 show;
  • Karen Oliver, Thom McInnis, and Jeff Cook = March 31 show;
  • Joe Condrill = February 17 show 


Each show lasts an hour long, but with using your Mouse, you can skip over the commercials and shorten that down.
