State Fair Opening Day

I'm sharing a few photos from last year's opening day at the Wisconsin State Fair when, for the second year in a row the PhilCast show was live from the grounds. I've got to admit that it seems very strange to me to not be there broadcasting for the first time in 16 years.

Although the PhilCast won't be there today, I will be playing a special open to the show that uses some clips from last year there.

And each day on the show Mr. Fair, Bill (of Fair) Bill Cicerelli will be phoning in a live report from the grounds right after the 3:30 news. Watch my blog for any corresponding photos that he sends me too.

Speaking of photos...
Here are a few from our PhilCast setup last year on opening day...




That's the State Fair's Kathleen O'Leary, whom you heard on the show on Tuesday doing a State Fair preview interview.

And of course that's Lips LaBelle co-hosting with me there.













 

We had a sweet set-up at Rupena's with our own house band and everything.











The Kids From Wisconsin dropped by to sing and be interviewed on the show as well.











Of course, cream puffs.
