HowzYer?

HowzYer Weekend?
Lets talk about what you did over the weekend on the PhilCast today. 

You can call in live or write us a note via email or posting at the PhilCast Facebook fan page.

Then join us at 3-ish for the Monday PhilCast to hear what people were up to over the weekend.

Here's Soccer Mom Patti who received her "Woobie Boobie" prize over the weekend, my media credentials from covering the Greater Milwaukee Auto Show earlier this year.


I think that certainly lives up to the name "boobie" prize for coming in last place in the PhilCast Bracket Madness Challenge during March Madness.


NO ONE had picks worse than Patti!

I can't stay mad at her

Friday, Apr, 20 2012

PhilCast listeners might remember a while back I was trying to get Giada to direct-tweet me. It never happened and I dropped following her on Twitter.

But come on, how I can stay mad at this?

"Cooks & Got Looks" I say...


Man.


And thanks to the PhilCast research department for the heads-up on this magazine cover. I would have never seen it had our crack show researcher Lori not sent this to me.


What?


Huh?


I'm a little distracted and craving pasta now.
Have a good weekend.

Dick Clark

Thursday, Apr, 19 2012

Coming up on the Thursday PhilCast you'll hear from someone who met Dick Clark in person because Lips LaBelle will join me in studio for his weekly Thursday visit.

Lips met Dick Clark at an event years ago and Lips will talk all about it today at 4:30-ish on the show.

Lips is also just back from vacation so I'm sure he'll have a few stories from his Florida adventures last week.

And then we'll chat up the usual Hollywood news and gossip in that half hour.

Also today, I've been seeing a LOT of a certain type of butterfly around this week for some reason. I mentioned something about it on Twitter and listener Paul K. was kind enough to send me a photo, because he's been seeing a lot of them around too. 

This is exactly what they look like.


I've seen groups of them, 4-6 at a time flitting around the flower beds that are coming up.


For some reason they are just plentiful right now it seems.

Brewers Fever

Wednesday, Apr, 18 2012

It's "Hump Day" and the PhilCast is ready to send you to Miller Park to see the Brewers in action!

Today we will be giving away TWO PhilCast Family Four Packs to see the games on Friday and Saturday night.

When you hear us play "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" on the show just call in to win.

But of course you know the one catch...if you go on us you have to phone in a report to my voice mail that we can play back for everyone to hear on the Monday show. 

So if you can go and you're not afraid of playing the role of PhilCast reporter or sorts, then give us a call this afternoon...and Go Brewers!

To tweet or not to tweet?

Tuesday, Apr, 17 2012

To tweet or not to tweet, that is the question today on the PhilCast.

There is an interesting debate taking place across the country regarding the question of people being allowed to use Twitter in the courtroom.

On the one hand some judges say it can be distracting to the jurors and could lead to information going out to them that they shouldn't see. But on the other hand reporters ask how tweeting is any more distracting than taking notes.

Right now there is no rule that covers this and judges are making decisions as they go from case to case. Some even allow photos to be taken as long as no member of the jury is in any picture.

Should people/reporters have the right to tweet in the courtroom or should we just be telling everyone to turn everything off while they are in a court of law? Heck, some jurors have even been tweeting during the trial they are sitting in on.

We'll discuss on the show Tuesday afternoon.

I'll also have an Olympic update today. Plus, the freakish new diet that brides are using to be able to fit into their wedding gowns.
