2006-08-28 17:45:24 Al has a great show on KDVS. He always sounds excited to be on the air and it sounds very professional. Being involved in a community that I love like KDVS certainly increases the liklihood of getting my endorsement. Plus, I've seen Al talk very well at city hall. I'm excited about his candidacy. —RobRoy
