# 270 - Christopher Columbus All Along the Outerbelt


58:53 minutes (53.91 MB)

Tonight on the show, it's time to let all of the air back after DJBC's early autumnal break. SCOTUS, The State of Radio, and Why Voting in Next Month's Election Is Super-Important; Plus happenings around town this week. And a message from Christopher Columbus himself.

October 9, 2018 is the LAST DAY to register to Vote for the November 6 General Election! DO NOT BE SILENT! VOTE! Your Vote Is Your Voice (which I say in many languages in this show)

And if there is anything else that was unfiltered, I had to do this show under heavy time constraints and had to record the whole show in the MAIN studio, when it was unavailable.

And, yes, this is Show # 270. Where is your favorite place to hang out along the Outerbelt?
