KPCC's Frank Stoltze at Philippe's, one of the last businesses in the country with actual phone booths.

We're trying something very new and very old. Wednesday, KPCC political reporter Frank Stoltze and crew will be at Philippe's restaurant in downtown Los Angeles from 6 a.m. to noon, and he wants to hear from you.

What's the big election year issue for you, and, more important, why?

Frank'll be at a table recording your opinions and life stories, and he might even buy you a cup of coffee and a pickled egg.

Frank will also be checking-in with Steve on Morning Edition, Alex and A on Take Two and Larry on Airtalk.

This is part of a new online project called That's My Issue, in which KPCC & WNYC are gathering stories of how you came to care about the issue that matters the most to you.

And if you can't make it to Philippe's, Frank will be at other eateries throughout Southern California in these weeks leading up to the election.

Speaking of old fashioned, Philippe's still has phone booths. If you remember the pitfalls of phone booths, make sure to listen to Frank's chat with Rabe.
