It's called Daylight SAVING Time

Friday, Oct, 30 2015

Behind the scenes-How many people does it take to change the PhilCast studio clock?
Friday it's the annual PhilCast Halloween show.

I'll have a story about turning the clocks back that's pretty interesting and pretty much blows up any of the original reasons for doing this in the first place.

The end of the Friday show will feature the annual playing of the classic AFN Halloween bit, "Frankenstein's Castle", a time-honored broadcast tradition in my world!

Oh, one more reminder...
It's called Daylight SAVING Time, not savings.

Special fan at Packers' game Sunday

Thursday, Oct, 29 2015

"The Duel in Denver"
Sunday Night Football brings us the Packers-Broncos in an historic matchup.

This will be only the 4th time in NFL history that two 6-0 teams have met.

On the sidelines will be the 15 year old you see here, Daniel Hailpern.

He's come back from leukemia and had a bone marrow transplant as part of his treatment.

On the Thursday PhilCast I'll have his story, which includes the fact that he's a fan of both the Broncos and the Packers. And how something that happened in the hospital while undergoing treatments has lead to him being on the radio and on the sidelines for Sunday's game.

It had it all...

Wednesday, Oct, 28 2015

On the Wednesday PhilCast I'll have to talk about something I saw not a minute of last night...
World Series Game One.

I'm not much of a baseball fan, but even a non-fan like me has to sit back in awe of what happened last night.

The storylines were never-ending...

--A controversial power outage that knocked the game off TV
--An inside-the-park home run on the very first pitch of the game
--A pitcher whose dad died before the game, but he didn't know because his wife wanted it kept secret
--And oh yeah, 14 innings before KC won.

Marigold Mile meeting

Tuesday, Oct, 27 2015

A reminder….

Tonight is the Marigold Mile meeting in Appleton.

The long time tradition of the Marigold Mile flower planting along South Oneida Street in Appleton is in jeopardy.

The “Flower Power” movement is on tonight when the City of Appleton holds a Public Involvement Meeting at 6:30 in the City Center on 6th floor.

Remember, the new re-construction plan for the street has put the flowers in jeopardy and the city would need to spend an extra 40-grand to widen things to keep the area for flowers.

All are welcome at tonight’s meeting and marigold flowers will be handed out to all those present wishing to show their support.

Packerless Weekend

Monday, Oct, 26 2015

So what did you do with your Packers'-free weekend?

The Monday PhilCast will still open with Rich Ratay and a mini version of Pack Yak, as we preview the battle of the unbeatens coming up in Denver Sunday night.

The SNF theme song says, "Waitin' all day for Sunday night" but I'll be waitin' all week long.
Bring it!
