Ahhh, a long holiday weekend!!
Blue Moon. Labor Day. Football. And, of course, in honor of workers everywhere, the KSER Weekend Manager's Mailbox.
Dear Tom@KSER.org: That KSER DJ Uncle Pat is off the hook! Me and some co-workers were stocking shelves at the co-op Thursday night and we had to crank up KSER. That guy was playing the wildest mix of music we've ever heard and he's such a cool-sounding DJ. We kept turning it up louder and louder. We had a few customers, but I think they were getting scared. How often is he on? Is he as wild as he sounds? Daniel, Everett
Daniel: Every Thursday night at 7 on KSER. Every family has one crazy uncle, we've got Uncle Pat.
Dear Tom@KSER.org: I enjoyed Amy Goodman's coverage from the Republican Convention. She did some hard-hitting reporting. My question is will she do the same thing for the Democrats? Or is she just a Republican-Basher? Michael, Kenmore
Michael: Amy will be in Charlotte this coming week for the Democratic Convention. She'll have her usual show at 5 a.m. and a two-hour special each morning at 7 a.m. on KSER starting Tuesday. She's an equal-opportunity basher. If someone deserves tough questions, she'll ask. She's not a corporate media stenographer, but a real journalist.
Dear Tom@KSER.org: I think you guys have a great variety of news shows and great music shows. Is there a line-up or schedule of what show is on when? Kim, Mukilteo
Kim: All the info in one convenient click.
Dear Tom@KSER.org: Love the Amy Goodman, Democracy Now convention coverage. Can't wait for the Democrats' turn. I loved the take on the Clint Eastwood craziness. How whacky is it to pretend that the president is sitting in an empty chair and then pretend you're talking to him? Gary, Arlington
Gary: It was different. By the way, we had a live in-studio interview with President Obama Friday. We're quite proud that he stopped by KSER.

Dear Tom@KSER.org: Last week you had a picture of a KSER mouse-pad. I love the station but I'm not big on wearing shirts and jackets with anyone's logo on them. A mouse-pad, though, is something I'd use and could help display my love of the station. Can I buy one? Marianne, Edmonds
Marianne: Yes, but hurry. Supplies are unlimited. Just click here. And thanks for supporting Independent Public Radio!

Dear Tom@KSER.org: Really appreciate all the information you've provided recently about getting PSA's on the station and finding community resources. I run a small non-profit organization and that kind of info is very helpful. With the size of your audience you must get a lot of email; I hope you don't have to deal with a lot of spam. David, Everett
David: Thanks. For those that missed it, the primer on getting your PSA's on the air is here. And the KSER community resource guide is here. And, no, we don't get much spam. Good filters, I guess.
Dear Tom@KSER.org: This is to inform you of the latest development as regards the delivery of your inheritance fund by the diplomat who is presently at the JFK Int'l airport New York.Confirm your Full Name,Occupation, Residence Address & Direct Telephone Numbers. Regards, George Smith.
George: I'll send you that info via email. Wouldn't want to post it here.Have a great weekend!
