On The Line: STUFF
Stuff. Everybody’s got it. Some of us want more. Some of us don’t know what to do with what we already have. Friday (1/28 at noon) we open our phone lines for your questions, comments (and yes, even complaints) about the Stuff in your life. Our guests (below) have a lot of experience dealing with Stuff. You can send questions ahead of time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, tweeting @WBHM903 using the hashtag #WBHMstuff or posting to our Facebook page.
Join the conversation during the show by calling 1-800-444-9246.
