Crazy jet pictures

Wednesday, Dec, 3 2014

On the Tuesday show I was reading some listener email and one of the conversations was with Suzi, vacationing in St. Martin. She sent these pictures of the beach where the landing pattern for jets includes buzzing the beach.

Take a look.

She wasn't kidding!

Dyeing pit hair

Tuesday, Dec, 2 2014

Dyeing armpit hair.
Could it become the new 'thing' for women in 2015?

Apparently it is already a thing at a salon in Seattle. I'll have the story on the Tuesday PhilCast.

Yes ladies, time to not only let that armpit hair grow out, but then, as you can see from the pictures, dye it some bright color.

Honestly, what next?

They say it's 'empowering' to do it.

Um, not so much really.

WSEA "Cianciola by the Sea"

Friday, Nov, 28 2014


Black Friday and it's cold and snowing and feeling more like January than November.
Having the day off today (plus having no interest in shopping with the masses) it leaves me plenty of time to further my plans for the future of the PhilCast on WSEA radio.

If you haven't heard me talking about it, "The Sea", WSEA is the name of the radio station I want to create in Fort Myers, Florida, where I do my afternoon sea shelling show Tuesdays through Thursdays, my work week there as owner and general manager.

My station's official logo will look something like this throwback sea shell show banner from the 40's on Sanibel Island, which happens to be where I live while running WSEA, "The Sea" radio.

Yep, I've got it all figured out in my mind.

In addition to my shelling show, which features callers talking all about their shell discoveries on the beach on any given day, programming will also inlclude a fishing show with a boat captain, talking about the daily catch.

Then there will be a restaurant show featuring cooking that latest catch from the Gulf.

We'll run surf reports instead of traffic reports. "Weather on the Whatevers" is what I'll call my forecast segments, because the weather is always nice and it doesn't matter if you do forecasts on the 10's, 20's, 5's...nope, it's "Weather Whenever" on WSEA! (We'll just not worry about the occasional hurricane)

Mixed in will be beach music with a touch of reggae as well.
Our official station jingle will have sounds of the surf underneath the group of people singing the call letters.

Of course I already have the best name I could for myself on-air, but I'd change Cianciola to SEAanciola.

Like I said, I've got it all planned out. WSEA "The Sea" already exists in my mind.

Now I just need to get Woodward Radio to buy a station down there so I can put my plan into motion!
