This week’s show topics will be:

SCAM ALERT for any car owner.
People are claiming to be a representative of the Texas Department of Transportation and they are demanding money for passing through one of their tolls without paying. Somehow they have his Wisconsin plates from his T-bucket passing through Texas. The listener, of our show, sent us the details on what happened next.

A few things from our WHRR Inbox.
Reading a few letters from our listeners regarding our last week’s topic on wearing masks.
The show is labeled “Masks, Magazines, Models and Car Shows from August 8th, 2020. The subtitle was called “When is wearing a mask cool?”

Mark Taylor is in a new band.
Many of you know Mark from the Flatheads band. They are a rock n roll band from Southern Wisconsin with a huge following. He will continue with the Flatheads while playing in a country rock band called Whiskey Angel. We might have room to play one of their songs.
