BEGIN HOUR 2 TEXT:

TOM: Coast to coast and floorboards to shingles. This is The Money Pit Home Improvement Radio Show. I'm Tom Kraeutler.
LESLIE: And I'm Leslie Segrete.
TOM: The number is 1-888-MONEY-PIT. Picking up the phone and dialing that number will put you in touch with us and we will help you with your home improvement projects. See how easy that is? (Leslie chuckles) See how simple this show is?

LESLIE: And we're also giving away a great prize this hour. We're giving away a set of three Pizzazz mirror squares from our friends over at MirrorMate, which are very beautifully framed mirrors that you can hang in groupings around the house, you can put them individually.
