The show is a weekday show about what men like to talk about. We’ll log into and proceed to discourse, converse, chat, dwell and touch in with and speak on/from the culture of man-mindedness. We’ll rock discussions on entertainment, life, love, recreation, sports, fathering, dating, marriage, divorce, partying…we will cover ALL of men’s issues and interests…including, of course, the focal point known as Women! Men’s thinking will be better understood and appreciated. Men will dig it because we’re talking what they’re thinking. Women will dig it because of the opportunity to “learn the secrets” by listening to Asylum 590…Monday through Fridays…3pm to 6pm on 590 The Man.
