HOW TO USE THE SWAP SHOP

Once the phone rings, just hang on… your call will be answered by the host of the program in the order your call is received. You will hear the host talking in the background, so wait patiently and the host will begin talking to you, and welcome you to the Swap Shop. That’s your cue to begin your ad.

Speak up a bit and list your items, descriptions, prices, your phone number, and the best time to call. The host will repeat your list of items and contact number back to you to make sure that it was recorded correctly for our records… and that’s it! Easy, right ?

IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER

TURN YOUR RADIO DOWN IN THE BACKGROUND.

A radio playing in the background while you are on the air causes feedback, a loud squealing or echo effect. If this occurs, the host will ask you to turn it down once you get on the air, so please turn your radio down before you call.

PLAN AHEAD

Write down your items, descriptions, and prices on a piece of paper before you phone in so that you can easily recall everything you want to advertise.
