An all-new Christmas program from Jerry Stewart, “Looking for Christmas”

Dec 5, 2018

Thursday, December 20 and Friday, December 21 at 8:06 AM ET
SES-2, SR 2-Unity Receiver

Thursday, December 20 at 8:06 AM ET
XDS Receiver, V01 Netcue for local break

As anxious shoppers scurry around looking for just the right gift to give for Christmas, the question is this – “Are we looking in all the right places for Christmas?” And “Just what or Who are we looking for?” Today’s program will be full of stories of people looking for the happiness of Christmas, and what happened to them when they looked in the “right” place.

  • You will hear the story of one young boy, a deaf boy and what he “heard” after delivering a special gift to one very poor child.
  • Then there’s the story of the famous painter, Leonardo DaVinci, and what he found as he searched for the perfect models for one very famous painting.
  • In the late 50’s there was this one local live talent show. Hear what happened when one young boy discovers what’s “behind the box”.
  • You’ll hear some wonderful Christmas stories of children’s antics at Christmas, and some insights into the many customs of Christmas
  • Then there’s the story of one woman at Christmas who was looking for special help from her own Christmas angel, but, instead, finds herself doing her own bit of Christmas angel work. This is a powerful true story.
  • Finally, the most powerful story to be told in all of history – the story of Jesus, the Christ Child, and the story of the Wise Men as they followed that star to Bethlehem. This may be your first time to hear this powerful story of God’s amazing grace just this way.

“Looking for Christmas” is a wonderful program perfect for all ages and designed to remind us of the true Hope we have in the Christ Child. I encourage all not to miss it!

This program follows the SRN Talk Clock. For questions regarding the program call Jerry Stewart at 360-961-5587.

Software Upgrade for Westwood One XDS Receivers (Nov 29, 2018)

Nov 27, 2018

Software Upgrade for Westwood One XDS Receivers

Reboot Required

Dear Westwood One XDS User:

Westwood One is releasing upgraded versions of receiver software to the Cumulus XDS-PRO4, PRO4Q, PRO1 and PRO1Q model receivers. The new versions (v2.8.4 for PRO4 and PRO1, v3.4.12 for PRO4Q and PRO1Q) will replace all previous versions of XDS-PRO receiver software. This upgrade is intended to fix certain issues experienced by users of this platform as well as providing some enhanced features that will hopefully benefit you in the future.

The upgrade will be pushed from Westwood One TOC via satellite to your XDS-PRO receiver on Thursday 11/29/2018. When the upgrade is in the process of downloading, you will see the amber ‘UPDATE’ light blinking slowly on the front panel of the receiver. It is important that you do not reboot or otherwise disturb the receiver while the UPDATE light is blinking slowly. When you see the UPDATE light flashing rapidly, the upgrade is finished downloading.

Once the upgrade is completely downloaded, the receiver must be rebooted in order to accept the upgrade. You must observe the UPDATE light flashing rapidly for at least 15 minutes before rebooting to accept the upgrade. Reboot can be accomplished by either cycling power, or by doing a soft boot via the front panel as follows:

1) Press SET
2) Right Arrow to SETUP
3) Press SET
4) Left Arrow to REBOOT
5) Press SET
6) Select YES to reboot (Button 1)

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE REBOOT PROCESS WILL CAUSE YOUR RECEIVER TO MUTE FOR APPROXIMATELY 60-90 SECONDS. We suggest that you reboot at a time that will cause minimum disruption to your station’s operation. Remember to make sure your receiver is neither playing out nor recording any programs at the time you reboot.

Note: If you elect to cycle the AC power, the reboot may take longer because the virtual disk needs to be checked for errors upon power-up.

Please reboot your receiver and accept the upgrade by Sunday December 16th. On Sunday December 16th at approximately 0355 ET, Westwood One will send a mandatory reboot command to all XDS PRO4Q and PRO1Q receivers that have not accepted the upgrade by that time. If you have already rebooted the receiver and accepted the upgrade by the time of the mandatory reboot, your receiver will not reboot or mute when we send the mandatory reboot command.

If you have any questions, please call our Affiliate Technical Services support number – 914-908-3210.

The Bob Zadek Show

Mar 21, 2017

Bob Zadek is the host of The Bob Zadek Show, the longest running libertarian talk show in California – broadcast live on 860 AM, KTRB – The Answer (as well as 1380AM in Sacramento and 1590 in Seattle), every Sunday at 8am.

Bob talks about the issues that affect our lives on a daily basis from a purely libertarian standpoint. He believes in small government, fewer taxes, and greater personal freedom.

America has lost its way, but it cannot and does not need to be reinvented. Our founders were correct about their approach to government, as were John Locke, Adam Smith and the other great political philosophers who influenced them. The country’s first principles are economic and social freedom, republicanism, the rule of law, and liberty. Bob believes we must take the best of our founding principles and work from them because a country without principles is just a land mass.

He recently released an ebook of his best interviews, Secret Sauce: The Founders’ Original Recipe for Limited American Democracy, featuring insights from eight top scholars on where the American experiment with constitutionally-limited democracy went wrong.

Bob has been practicing finance law for 50 years, is listed in “The Best Lawyers In America,” and has been awarded the highest rating for Ethical Standards and Legal Ability by Peer Reviewed Martindale Hubbell. He holds a law degree and a Master’s degree in Law from NYU School of Law and is a Charter Fellow in the American College of Commercial Finance Lawyers, Past President of the Association of Commercial Finance Attorneys, Past Chair of the 1,500 member Commercial Finance Committee of the Business Law Section of the American Bar Association, and Past Chair of the California State Bar UCC Committee.

He has been retained as an expert witness in more than 25 cases dealing with finance law. As an entrepreneur, he created and now manages Lenders Funding LLC, which makes and participates in loans to small business.

Bob’s passions are American history, entrepreneurism, libertarianism, and his number one fan and significant other Anne.

Featuring Top Constitutional Scholars & Economists:

  • Donald J. Boudreaux of Cafe Hayek
  • Thomas Fleming, author of over 50 fiction and non-fiction history titles
  • William Maurer & Clark Neily III of the Institute for Justice
  • Alex Nowrasteh of the Cato Institute
