The Only Two Products I Endorse
   Published July 18, 2019
In 18-years on the radio, I can count the number of products I have endorsed on one hand. I have had many opportunities, but after much due diligence, I usually end up saying no.

There are two products, however, that I am sold on personally and very proud to put my name on.

NuVinAirA dear friend of mine named Alan Brown worked for me for many years. He started washing cars for me when he was about 16-years old. He was the hardest working guy on the wash rack and, to be honest, I saw a  Read Find out>

4th Of July Quotes From Our Founding Fathers
   Published July 1, 2019
Just my humble opinion, but many of our youth today do not realize the true meaning of the 4th of July. It is, after all, our Independence Day. Holidays are always fun and a great time to get together with family and friends, but freedom isnt free, and never will be. Men and women of America have laid down their lives so we could enjoy living in the greatest nation on earth.

I hope youll pause, give thanks, and remember those who died before us, and  Read Find out>

Happy Fathers Day From The Despreporno Show

Besides, observance of Fathers Day provides children an opportunity to express love and respect for their fathers. The sentiment goes a long way in strengthening father-child relationship and consequently in the emotional development of a child.

The idea of celebrating Fathers Day was given by Ms. Sonora Dodd, a loving daughter from  Read Find out>

Safety Alert: Dont Wear A Lanyard When Driving
   Published May 30, 2019
I have to admit, this never crossed my mind as a safety issue, but the Dorset Police in the United Kingdom have issued the following warning. I have talked on the CarProUSA radio show about the dangers of drinking out of ceramic or metal cups before. I saw a case about a fatality that occurred when an airbag deployed just as a man was putting a ceramic coffee up to his mouth.

Car Buying Tips For Our Military Heroes
   Published May 21, 2019
It only seems fitting that on the weekend we honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, that I try to help those who serve today. I started the Despreporno Show over 17 years ago with two missions in mind: to give people honest answers about buying a car, and to call attention to good car dealers, while calling negative attention to the bad ones. In my book, there is no lower scum than anyone who will take advantage of a member of our armed forces, yet it happens all the time.

For this reason, I want to give the men and women in our military some tips on not getting taken advantage of when buying a car. Some dealerships market to our military and make it inviting, yet their motive is just another sale. On the other hand, some dealers truly want to help. You need to be able to tell the difference to make sure you get a truly good deal.  Read Find out>

Best-Selling Minivans So Far For 2019
   Published March 13, 2019
It is not just cars that are suffering due to the mass movement towards SUVs, minivans are paying the price also. Sales of minivans through February 2019 reached 59,964 versus the first two months of 2018 when 77,816 were sold.
