-Dr. Pepper Ten was introduced this week as a man's alternative to Diet Dr. Pepper. Apparently, some men feel like they're trading in their man-card when they drink something called "diet," which is the reason why we also have Coke Zero and Pepsi Max. As long-time diet soda drinkers, John and Cleve are dispelling the girly diet soda myth. There's a fun ongoing conversation about this on the 88.3 WAFJ Facebook page.

Morning Show Notes - Tuesday, October 11th

-A deer accident on I-520 in North Augusta started off the morning commute today. Deer are very active this time of year, so keep that in mind if you travel before sunrise. Most experts say that you shouldn't try to swerve to avoid hitting a deer because you could end up in a more severe accident. One truck driver called to tell us there is a whistle you can mount to the grill of your car that will chase the deer away.
