5.5.10: Today's Show

Today on the Lisa D Show at NOON, Commissioner Anna Perez will call in to discuss her decision for the County to support a resolution against SB1070 and encourage an Arizona boycott.

Also, we'll find out what kind of meat they use at the Charcoaler because admit it, the hamburgers are just too good to be normal meat.

Then we'll talk to our good friends from the El Paso Diabetes Association about this weekend's walk to help raise awareness about diabetes. See registration info at the bottom of this post.

Fans! The show has moved to the much coveted noon to 1 PM slot, so be sure to tune into 1150 AM at NOON or stream the show at at NOON MST. If you have any questions, please call the show directly at 915-880-4376 and talk to Ruben, he has all the asnwers.
