Getting Down To Business - Question Of The Week

For 10 minutes, on one Tuesday each month, at 7:45 AM on KSCO 1080, SCORE members, sometimes with a guest, discuss ideas and answer questions. Prior to July of 2014, there was also an afternoon show that followed the same format.

Our then Chapter Chairman, Al Carman, was interviewed by Mark Carbonaro for Clear Channel Community Spotlight. Broadcast at 07:00 February 17, 2013 on stations KDON (102.5 FM), KION (1460 AM / 101.1 FM), KOCN (105.1 FM), and KTOM (92.7 FM). You can listen to the show by clicking here.
