That thing won?

Tuesday, Feb, 14 2012

I'm not happy with two of the group winners at the Westminster Dog Show after the first night of competition. We'll discuss on the Tuesday show.

I DID manage to pick one of the winners last night, which is really hard to do. For some reason the Dalmatian jumped out at me.

Three more groups to judge Tuesday night and then the best in show will be crowned.

My favorite group is the sporting group of dogs. Also tonight, the terrier group, featuring the Aussies and Cairns as well.

As it turns out Tata did very well today. You can see her being judged as I did some live commentary off the internet this morning by going to my Facebook page. Here is the link CLICK HERE

I'll be making a recording of my prediction for the overall winner live from my living room and post that on Twitter and Facebook as  the winner is announced. I don't know how they can pick, but they do and it's always fun to see the champion crowned.

DOG SHOW!

Monday, Feb, 13 2012

I'll be glued to the TV Monday and Tuesday nights watching the Westminster Dog Show, one of my annual traditions.


We'll chat with Julie Seaton of Muskego, Wisconsin after the 4:30 news on the Monday show. She's got one of her dogs in the big show this year.

Also coming up on the Monday show...some very interesting news about the death of Whitney Houston...my hits and misses from last night's Grammys show...and the most shocking thing about my trip to the movie theater to see "The Artist" over the weekend.

Thinking spring cycling

Friday, Feb, 10 2012

It is somewhat ironic that while I am writing this blog about spring it is, for the first time in a long time, snowing outside my window. Granted, it's not much snow but any snow this winter seems to make news.

But because I'm already looking forward to warmer days in spring I am going to make a PhilCast announcement here first today, so readers of this blog are the first to get the scoop.

Anyone who knows me knows of my passion for local radio and the connection between listeners, radio personalities and the businesses who support both in the community.

I like to buy local and support local.

That's why I am excited to announce today that we are adding a new advertiser to the PhilCast Family soon, one that features something near and dear to my heart...and the rest of my body...CYCLING!

 
Next month you'll be hearing me talk about 'Recyclist Bicycle Company' just up the road from the radio station in Kaukauna as they begin an advertising campaign with us.

After meeting with the owner Randy I knew we'd be a perfect match. Not only is Recyclist  a great shop but he has also just expanded with 'Gear 'N Up'  in Neenah.


You'll be hearing both live and recorded messages on the PhilCast about sales, specials and events taking place at both locations this spring. 

In addition, the PhilCast podcasts will now also be sponsored by Recyclist. So all of you listening on your own time via the podcast can thank them for helping make that an option for you.

But this partnership goes beyond just the ads you'll hear. I'll be able to demo bikes and accessories so I can give you first-hand recommendations.


And we're already talking about a Tour de PhilCast listener ride based out of the shop this summer so we can all get together and have a great time. Stay tuned for details on that.


In the meantime, here are the links to the websites for both shops. Please support those who support the show by stopping by, either in person or on-line. It's never too early in the season to start thinking about riding your bike!

CLICK HERE for Gear 'N Up in Neenah

The clock is ticking, and soon me and my baby hit the the road once again. Come on along and join us!

No greeting for you!

Thursday, Feb, 9 2012

Hey what happened to the greeters?

One of the things I'll be talking about on today's PhilCast is the decision by Wal-Mart to dump the greeters.
 

Now I'm not really much of a Wal-Mart shopper, and I know it's easy to make fun of all the old people standing there saying 'hi' and offering you a cart.


But still, the store was kinda known for that. Seems a shame to dump that tradition.


And while they say these people will NOT be fired, will they actually be able to do other things in the stores?
We'll discuss.


Glitter-bombing, caffeine inhaling and Lips LaBelle's weekly visit all on tap today.


Later...

Weigh-In Wednesday

Wednesday, Feb, 8 2012

Most call it Hump Day, but in the months of January, February and March it's Weigh-In Wednesday.

Time to hit the scale and report in. I see on the PhilCast Facebook fan page we've got at least one listener with a great success story. You can post there as well. 

On the subject of weight loss and exercise we'll talk about the Jimmy Fallon/Michelle Obama smack down on the PhilCast today as well.


And maybe we help a listener find a new puppy after the loss of a dog.
