"Howz Yer Weekend?"

Monday, May, 21 2012

So "Howz Yer Weekend?"
Time to talk weekend on the PhilCast this Monday. Please call in and chat about yours and then I'll tell you about mine, which included not only putting our boat in, but actually USING it! The old 1968 Crestliner fired up and ran so good we were able to take Handy Andy on his first-ever tube adventure.

The only problem was that the sly dog out-foxed me. As he grew more confident with himself back there my plan was of course to nail it and dump him right in front of the people watching at our place. He jumped tube before I could ever do it. Smart guy...knows me too well I guess.

Call 281-1150 or toll free on the Red Ox PhilPhone at 1-866-887-1150 to chat about YOUR weekend.

RAINing on Friday PhilCast

Friday, May, 18 2012

The drummer with the internationally-known Beatles tribute band RAIN who has Wisconsin ties will join me on the PhilCast today in the first hour.
I saw these guys earlier this spring when they played Milwaukee and it was a fantastic show.

If you like the Beatles at all I would suggest getting to the PAC in Appleton for a show. They're doing three, one Friday night and two on Saturday.

The cool thing about the concert is that RAIN both sounds and LOOKS just like the Beatles, and they walk through the various stages of the legendary band, from Ed Sullivan video clips to feeling like you are at Shea Stadium's concert, to the psychedelic Beatles when they perform songs the Beatles never did live. In fact, RAIN has been together longer than the actual Beatles. It should be a fun interview and a solid concert to attend.

Have a great weekend....and don't forget to call in during the 4:00 hour to share "Chadoin' This Weekend?" plans...promote events taking place this weekend...let us know what's up with the PC Family this weekend. And if you can't call in live just post a note on the PhilCast Facebook Fan Page.

Highway or Freeway?

Tuesday, May, 15 2012

Will someone please tell me what all the fuss is about regarding the future of Highway 41?


All this week public meetings are being held to talk about the advantages of making the biggest route into our neck of the woods a freeway rather than a highway. 


Now aside from the cost of putting up those green and white signs telling travelers they're on a freeway (at a cost to taxpayers) what's the big diff? Why bother? Isn't HIGHWAY 41 already for the most part to the standards of what a freeway is anyway? 


Tomorrow there will be a meeting here in the Fox Valley about this and at some point this week we'll get someone on the PhilCast to talk about making the change. Whoever it is, maybe he or she can change my mind on this because right now I'm not feeling it.

Back in the saddle

Monday, May, 14 2012

Well it's back to the old routine today now that my week of being a beach bum has come to an end. 


Coming up on the Monday show I'll have a little vacation recap for you, including the funny story about the baby rabbits making progress in my front yard.



Tonight will be a special night for Johnny Carson fans, and I am certainly in that camp. Plus I'll have a story I think you'll be shaking your heads at and saying, "What's wrong with that cop?" when you hear it. Howz Yer Weekend too...share any stories from your Mother's Day weekend with us in the first hour by calling in live or posting them on the PhilCast Facebook fan page.
