Back to work Monday....

Monday, Apr, 16 2012

So Howz Yer Weekend? We'll discuss on the Monday PhilCast. Feel free to call in during the first hour of the show today to fill us in on what you were up to over the weekend. Mine included learning all about mourning dove nesting (more about that on the show). If you can't call in leave a post on our Facebook Fan page and I'll be going over those as well. CLICK HERE to leave a post.


50 years ago today this handsome guy took over the news desk at CBS television and would become the most trusted man in America.

How times have changed. How many people actually even watch a network newscast each evening now like we used to do. 

And how many people could even name the anchors that now have the job on the big three networks?

Also today, how the  heck did I miss a local beauty pageant over the weekend in the Valley? The countdown to June's Miss Wisconsin pageant is on. Is there still time to add a celebrity radio talk show host as a judge????

mmmm, bacon

Friday, Apr, 13 2012

No secret that I'm in a club that feels bacon just makes everything taste better. But on a sundae?

Yup...Burger King is testing out its new bacon sundae in the Nashville area.

Too bad, because if it were available around here I would try one.

The combination of chocolate sweet and salty is nothing new and is a winner with me.

One of my favorite treats at the Wisconsin State Fair each year is to buy myself a small bag of milk chocolate-covered potato chips. Sweet and salty at the same time just seems to work for me.
Chime in on this afternoon's PhilCast if you would like because I'll be bringing this up...along with Anderson Cooper crying like a little girl and more.

Bandwagon member

Thursday, Apr, 12 2012

I've talked about this many times before and will do so again now just to clarify. I am not a Bucks fan. I am not a Brewers fan. Not by definition anyway.

I've always felt that the word fan is short for fanatic. Am I fanatic about the Brewers or Bucks? No. Does that make me some sort of evil person who doesn't like our home state teams? No. I like them just fine, but I jump on the bandwagon only then things get interesting toward playoff time in whatever sport is involved.

Such is the case with the Milwaukee Bucks. I actually watched the end of the game with the Knicks last night at the BC. Playoff implications were huge and I want my home state team to beat out a team from New York as much as the next guy. It wasn't to be of course.

Today I'll be hoping for a Brewers' sweep of the Cubs simply because it's us versus them. 'Nuff said.

I guess the only state team I am really 'fanatic' about is the Packers. For me that means watching, listening, reading all about 'my' team all season long, not just when things are looking good near playoff time.

Late start again today for the PhilCast....4:30-ish after the Brewers sweep the Cubs on WHBY!

Thanks

Wednesday, Apr, 11 2012

Thanks to all those members of the PhilCast Family who in one form or another have expressed their well wishes to me and my family concerning the death of my father-in-law.

It has been a tough stretch for us, but now we move on.

Both the Wednesday and Thursday PhilCast shows will be cut short by afternoon Brewers' games. We should be starting both days somewhere around 4:30-ish perhaps. Then Friday it's a full show with the return of the Friday PhilCast Facebook Friend of the Week. Get your nominations in now! Just email me...



Speaking of the Brewers, anyone else find themselves looking to see what Prince Fielder does each day in Detroit like me? I suppose that will wear off, but I still find myself interested in how he is starting off over there in that 'other league'.

Oh, one more inside story for readers of my blog;
I can report to you that yesterday "Reggie the Producer" and the writer of his jingle "Reggie the Producer" met in person for the first time yesterday and that was pretty cool I thought.

Reggie and our program director Dave Edwards made the trek down to Milwaukee to attend the funeral, which says a lot about the quality of people I work with at the new home of the PhilCast.
