The WBF Shopper


Welcome to the WBF Shopper
The classified column of the airways.


The WBF Shopper is heard Monday through Saturday, 9am to 10am. Listeners from all over Polk County and beyond call the WBF Shopper to Buy, Sell or Trade for FREE on the radio!

To put your items on the
WBF Shopper, call 863.533.0745
Monday thru Saturday, 9 to 10am.



The best way to insure the maximum number of listeners will get on the air is to limit every caller to:

  • One (1) telephone call per day,
  • a maximum of three (3) items per call,
  • and a maximum of three (3) calls per week.
  • You can check how times you have called the show by checking the Shopper Caller Phone Numbers.

And remember no telephone calls are placed 'on hold' prior to the show, all telephone lines open when the WBF Shopper begins.

In addition the staff and management of WWBF or Thornburg Communications, Inc., makes no claims or offers as to products being sold on the WBF Shopper by our listeners.

Firearms on the WBF Shopper
For the purpose of the WBF Shopper, a person selling or buying a firearm is defined as: "a documented resident of the State of Florida, making occasional sales, exchanges, or purchases of firearms and/or ammunition for the enhancement of a personal collection, or who sells all or part of his personal collection of firearms. In addition, the selling of firearms and/or ammunition cannot be the principal objective of livelihood and profit through the repetitive purchase and resale of firearms.

While no State of Florida permit is required to possess or purchase a rifle, shotgun or handgun, it is suggested a firearm and/or ammunition seller confirm that the buyer is 1) not a convicted felon, 2) 18 years of age or older, 3) a documented resident of the State of Florida. Also you cannot carry a firearm on your person without a Concealed Weapons Permit.

Click here at access The Florida Crime Information Center, if you are concerned about buying a stolen firearm. You will need the serial number of the firearm, to conduct the search.
Having trouble getting on the Shopper, try these tips:
  • Listen to the program on the radio, FM 102.9 or AM 1130. The host of the show will announce when the phone lines are available and/or open.

  • Listeners tell us, that using the redial feature doesn't work all the time. It depends on the type of phone you are using.

  • Listeners also tell us, that the automatic call-back feature offered by the phone company, only works some of the time.

  • The most successfull way to get on the Shopper, is dailing directly, and lots of patience and a little luck.

  • Advertise your items using our online version of the WBF Shopper.

  • If your call is disconnected, prior to getting on the show, possible reasons are...
    1. You have reached the limit of three calls per week. This is the most common reason.
    2. You have already called the show. Only one call per day.
    3. Our telephone screening system cannot determine your telephone number.
