  1. Enjoyed your report from downtown Denton, TX and hearing the traffic. Audio was very sharp and clear! Wife and I are originally from the Dallas area. After I was commissioned in the Army, we spent a fair amount of time going back/forth on U.S. 380 between Dallas and Fort Sill, OK. Spent a lot of money at the Denton DQ at 380 and I-35E.
