Merl Saunders "Lost & Found" WMBR station ID

That's it for today! Please join me next week for a four-hour Election Day special edition of the Tuesday "Lost & Found" from 12 noon - 4 PM EST! I will be urging you to vote! I feel that it's very important this year! Please don't feel that it doesn't matter whether you vote just because your state traditionally votes for a certain party, or because your candidate is ahead in the polls. The polls have often been wrong! Although I can't verbally campaign for any particular party, candidate or initiative on the air, I will be letting the music do the talking, so read between the lines. Your requests and suggestions are welcome!

Thanks for listening,
Eli Polonsky
