My yard the zoo

Thursday, May, 3 2012

So upon arriving home Wednesday night our dog Gabby discovered a rather large hole in the front lawn. Seems she got a bit fired up by the smell of something in there. Sure enough, some baby something-or-others the size of a mouse were squirming around in there. They are obviously newborns about the size of a small mouse, so they can't be baby mice...too big already. I have a guess as to what they are though. I'll talk about it on the Thursday PhilCast show. And in addition to the mama mourning dove still sitting on the nest outside my back door there is a new winged player with another nest just a few feet away now. The animals theme continues on the show today because Neenah city fathers met to talk about new pet restrictions there and Appleton city fathers are putting together plans on what to do about raising chickens in the city.

The pictures from Wednesday's visit to Van Zeeland's Nursery are now posted at the PhilCast Photo Page

Clark & Clunk

Wednesday, May, 2 2012

It's Hump Day on the PhilCast and among other things I've got planned, we'll be talking about Clark Howard today. Clark comes to Appleton next week with WHBY as his host once again. 


Dave Edwards of the morning show will be joining us on the PhilCast today to talk about ticket sales for next week's event. 

So I figured as long as we're talking Clark I would go into my personal achieves and pull out my classic Clunk Hubbard bit. In a previous radio life there was one time when the Brewers' game ended just a tad early and the afternoon show host said he didn't start until three. So I came up with the idea of taking calls as Clark's cousin to kill a little time. 

And listeners started calling too. Funny thing is that Clark visited that station a couple years later and I played this bit for him. He was in tears he was laughing so hard. Clark's a great guy, both on and off the mic from what I have seen of him. So listen for a little classic Clunk Hubbard on the show today.


And we're done at 5:00 today also, making room then for the start of Brewers' pre-game.

The gift that keeps on giving

Tuesday, May, 1 2012

Yes, it's "Tell-a-Friend Tuesday" on the PhilCast, but the open to the show that I usually play for that will have to wait until the 4:00 hour today.


That's because I have a little something special to open the show today since once again, Brett proves he's the gift that just keeps on giving.

And thanks to our PC R&D dept. here ya go...
