Casey Kasem

Monday, Jun, 16 2014

Sorry to hear of the passing of Casey Kasem at 82.  Even more sorry to hear of all the Kasem family issues that dominated the news in the past few months. Put your petty problems aside and let the man die with dignity....

Casey retired in 2009, but apparantly had both Parkinson's and a form of dementia.

I mentioned on WHBY this morning of my love of his American Top 40 show, especially in my young years of the 70's and 80's, when Casey was in his heyday.  I used to sneak my old radio into bed with me as a kid, keep it down low so I could hear it, and hopefully Mom wouldn't, otherwise my radio was gone!  To hear Casey count down the hits, with anticipation of what the number one record(yes, record!) was that week is still a great childhood memory.

Rest in peace Casey, and we'll keep reaching for the stars....

Tooting our own horn!

Monday, May, 5 2014

Saturday night in Middleton, it was Wisconsin Broadcasters Association awards night!  400 broadcasters and guests....huge turnout. Biggest in the country, apparently.

WHBY won 4 first place awards, 11 other 2nd and 3rd place awards, then to cap the night, the Medium Market Station of the Year award as well, our 2nd in the past 3 years!!  It was a great night, and a big congrats to all the winners.

Packers schedule

Thursday, Apr, 24 2014

It's out...and it should be fun!

Tough start though, with 3 out of the first 4 on the road, including the big-time opener with the SB champs, the Seahawks in Seattle. The Lambeau grass gets a break as there's just one home game in September.

I like the placement of the bye week, about mid-schedule. Then, it's 7 of the last 8 games in Packer-like weather--outdoors in the cool or cold! Just the one warmie in Tampa, and remember that the Vikes play outside for two years while their new dome gets built.

Plenty of big-time exposure, too. 5 prime time games, plus a feature showdown with New England late in the year.  Good schedule...plenty of big games, and all of them on WHBY starting August 9th!!

Final Four, baby!

Friday, Apr, 4 2014

Gut feeling, not my heart talking here!  I am going to go with Wisconsin to knock off Kentucky in a thriller, 71-68, and Florida to slowly stretch it to a 74-64 win over UConn.  Bo's team has to assert and force this into their game, not Kentucky's. Hit some three's, get Kaminsky rolling and make sure Nigel Hayes gets plenty of minutes!

See you Monday morning and we'll talk about the Badger-Gator final!

Go Bucky!

Golf huh?!

Monday, Mar, 10 2014

Today on the Morning Show,  Head Pro at Reid Golf Course, Stacey Gassner joined us to debut a special opportunity to be the first to play the new 18 holes at Reid this spring.

When the snow melts and we dry up a bit, you and your freinds can be the first to play the course, with proceeds going to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fox Valley.  Go to whby.com to sign up, or stop by the studios on College Avenue in Appleton. You can also see Stacey at Reid as he'll be at the course daily from 10-3.

You'll get golf, cart, box lunch, a special gift that commemerates this special day, plus a happy hour after the golf!  Needless to say, you'll need to be a bit flexible on the date, with the snow melt in progress. We are shooting for mid to late April, weather permitting.

Thanks, and get your group together now!
