CHRISTMAS RAPPING

It's that time of year when people spend tons of money they don't have on stuff that that people don't want or need.  So, why not head over to the KJRW Corner Store and pick up a few things?  http://www.cafepress.com/KJRWWestSeattle 
There are T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, key chains, and some new things in the Gift Ideas section.
Some people forego the materialism, and instead like to give money to a worthy cause.  May I suggest a small donation to your favorite independent internet radio station?
