Title: KENA Swapshop


Nascarpit - January 8, 2009 06:52 PM (GMT)
There should be a limit of items you can call in on Swapshop. Some people call in
with a long list of cheap garage items and takes forever! :rant:

I agree :thumb:

BearCatFan - January 8, 2009 07:40 PM (GMT)
Yeah....I heard that guy on there today and had the same thought.

But he sure was giving out a lot of deals for $5. :laughing: :laughing:

Call the radio station and talk to either mark hobson or dwight douglas about that/

Scotto - January 8, 2009 10:40 PM (GMT)
Swap shop is very popular, I listen to it a lot. But I agree, there should be a limit of three items per call, something like that.

And. What about the lady who always calls selling produce? Shouldn't she be buying commercial air time?

I love listening to swap shop. Mark Hobson is great!! He is one of the best DJ's I've heard. I love when he opens the show and says 20 times, we do not accept cars and the first callers says, "I got a 79 Pinto on blocks for sale!!" That's radio gold!

Hothead - January 9, 2009 04:03 PM (GMT)
Helllooooo!!! Am I on the air? Hellooo!

:laughing: I can pretty much see Mark's face at this point :whistle:

I have the same thought about the lady from Oklahoma....I am fairly certain that that her and her husband buy items strictly for resale....to me that is a business also..... :nono:

I'm absolutely certain!
She told me herself that she buys the produce from Texas and other places. :down:

We have a call in program where I live (NWA) and they do have strict rules regarding call ins. 3 items per caller, 1 gun, 1 auto, no firewood or advertisement of business, no pets, no houses for sale, etc. That still doesn't keep the people from rambling on and on and leaving their radio on which produces HORRIBLE feedback.

No guns, wood, and pets! We wouldn't have much of a swap shop then.
I have always wondered why you can't sell vehicles though?
I remember when I was younger, the swap shop we listened to, you could not advertise a vehicle for more than $500.00.

When we first moved here you could advertise cars on SwapShop...being raised in Phoenix I was fascinated by the show.

Mark does a good job but I also think that the woman that sells produce all the time shouldn't be on...I seem to remember that they banned her for awhile but she gets by every once in awhile.

I am also against the puppy mills that are constantly selling...giving away pets or trying to find one is fine but several kinds of puppies for sale is a telltale sign that it is a puppy mill.


Hothead - January 12, 2009 06:19 PM (GMT)
What about garage sales. Every once in awhile is okay, but some days it seems like that's all people are calling in and then they want to name several items they have in their sale. Takes forever!

The people selling dogs on swap shop more than likely have a kennel. There is a vast difference between a well managed kennel and a puppy mill. Let me explain what a puppy mill is. It is dirty, unsanitary. It does not provide ample space in their place of confinement. Usually several dogs in one space. They breed their bitches every season. They are not given adequate medical care. Maybe they have food, maybe they have water.

A responsible breeder keeps their kennels as clean as possible. Do not breed their bitches every season. They give medical care as they can, or take to the
vet. They are given fresh food and water daily. MY kennel was also heated and
air conditioned.

The puppy market is waaaay down right now with the economy like it is. I imagine
that is why you have more on the swap shop now.

In other words please don't lump all breeders into the "puppy mill class".

Yes. Glad you noted that, BP.

A responsible professional breeder has one, maybe 2 breeds and are very knowledgeable about them.

Clean kennels and shots is a minimum standard. But a breeder like shortcup was shows she *cares* when you see air conditioning and heat. :) :thumb: A good sign.

A professional breeder cares about their breed, and is extremely "health focused." They can provide testing results on both the parents and the puppies, documentation on the veterinary care (vaccinations, etc.).

They are well-versed in potential genetic problems inherent in their breed (cardiology testing for Cavalier Spaniels, hip x-rays for German Shepards, etc. ). ASK THEM SPECIFICALLY what they are doing to decrease these defects!

They keep records on breeding frequency, and testimonials and names/phone numbers of customers who have their offspring.

If they breed *extra small* *extra large* or *non standard* colors or anything that doesn't conform to the breed standard.....run away unless they are well versed in genetics and known in their professional circles as such. Be cautious if the puppies live in garage or kennel to make sure they have been socialized. I have found that top notch breeder's dogs are part of the family and used to the goings-on of a household.

AKC is a "given" with a professional breeder. If the the "seller" uses it as a "selling point"......RUN! AKC registration does not guarantee quality, think of it like a car title.

FWIW, these things are pretty *standard* and recognized by all professional breeders as such.

They should interview YOU and show concern for where their pups are going, too. :)

shortcup1 - January 13, 2009 12:14 AM (GMT)
Well put lector. Very few people realize how much time, work, effort, money, and heartache goes into breeding dogs. But there is joy also, when you see a puppy born, when you see a puppy take his first wobbly steps, when you get a good sloppy kiss, and when you see it go to a good home. (If I had doubts about a buyer, I would price it so high they thought I was crazy, but it worked.)

I KNOW what a puppy mill is...I have seen them up close...have gone out to look at some of the places that are advertizing puppies for sale on Swap Shop continuously...and the ones I have seen ARE puppy mills. They have more dogs than they can care for properly and the dogs are consistantly pregnant in order to produce more puppies.

Kennels, in my opinion, are small operations that are able to care for their dogs and puppies with the dignity they deserve.

Me too!!

I like the part where he says, "they're concrete drill bits for drilling in concrete".

Is that right? You mean they're not concrete drill bits for drilling wood or metal . . . well I'll be, ain't that something, what'll they think of next? :coverlaugh:

I'll tell 'ya though, Mark is one heck of a patient guy, he's got to have a great sense of humor to tolerate some of the stuff on the show. :thumb: :)

THe next time the concrete drill bits are offered up I hope one of you guys calls Mark and asks him, on the air, if you could use the concrete drill bits to drill in concrete.

Go to an estate auction sometime....you would be amazed at what you can buy for very little.

By the way, being disabled or not working means nothing. All it takes is someone who knows how to manage their money, and spend or invest it well. I have a friend who lives off flea marketing.

I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't heard it again but.... them concrete drill bits for drillin in concrete are up for sale again!!!!! :har:
