As I’ve started posting lately, the good folks at North Texas Radio are involved in the Antique/Vintage business to support ourselves. 

We’re going to be posting on various sites, and of course  whenever I can I will post here first. And wouldn’t it pretty stupid of me not to give fans of the station the best deals?
