Tanner,Ala. – First and foremost, sponsors of The Mark White Show believe in the mission of the show. Since the show began, I have added sponsors and people I believe in too. When you hear a sponsor on my show, understand that they are a sponsor because they also care about making a difference and they are dependable and trustworthy. One of those businesses is H&R Agripower in Tanner. I am pleased that they have joined the effort. Good things lead to good things and I’m looking forward to our partnership. My sponsors are the reason The Mark White Show exists. They are the reason that the show is now reaching over half the state of Alabama and parts of Tennessee and Mississippi via the radio airwaves. Please support them every opportunity you get.
Tanner, Ala. – As Cora, Nicholas, and I were headed to Exit 347 on I-65 to welcome Snuffy Wallace home from the hospital, a vinyl sign in front of the building which once housed eating establishments such as McKinney’s Corner and Wingzilla, caught my eye. It read, “El Pollo Maníaco.” I’m limited in my Spanish, but I know that in English that means The Maniac Chicken. Since we had a few minutes before Snuffy arrived, I decided we would stop there for lunch. When Cora heard the word breakfast, she was excited. She had a pancake brought out to her that was bigger than her head! I selected Carne Asada off of the Mexican menu and Nicholas enjoyed a burger off of the burger/sandwich menu. I’m telling you, as a former Mexican restaurant owner myself, those folks know how to cook. Two days later, we were back for lunch on Sunday! I was so impressed with El Pollo Maníco that I offered them an opportunity to become a sponsor of the show and they accepted. Our family loves El Pollo Maníaco and I believe yours will too. As a matter of fact, we already have lunch figured out for Sunday. You know, El Pollo Maníaco!
