host Shelter From The Norm,
“Unique News- Off- beat and Spot On”

Every week your two by-no-means mild-mannered “Pundits with Panache” blast through unique news and social issues, the online headlines, metropolitan newspapers, broadcast media and way too much caffeine in a never-ending battle for truth, justice, and general mayhem in true American style!

Alan wraps up each hour with the Just Sayin’ Who’s Playin’ segment to keep our listeners up to date about music and entertainment that is live and local here on the Space Coast.
