"Fitz" visits the PhilCast today

Tuesday, Dec, 3 2013

Boy, he's gotten big!

One year ago when Molly Johnson came in to the PhilCast studio to talk about Compassionate Canines she brought along a squirmy little puppy hoping to some day become a therapy dog.

Well, here's Fitz today.

He's stopping by with Molly to talk all about the therapy dog world.

We'll see how he's done. One thing's for sure; he has grown quite a bit since our last visit.

Our chat after the 3:30 news Tuesday.

What's that I hear?

Time for Christmas music on the PhilCast!
The new week means that the countdown to Christmas on the PhilCast is on.

--Short "Pack Yak" with Rich Ratay to open things up Monday. A half hour of sorting out the mess should be plenty of time for us.

--Thanksgiving review next. I've got stories, including a dandy from the theater on Saturday night.

--4:10 "The Buzzer", Maureen Wallenfang of the Post-Crescent joins me to talk all things shopping. Did you know something interesting happened in terms of our shopping patterns over the holiday weekend? I've got the magic stat from Black Friday to lay on the Buzz.

Finally...a picture from a PhilCast Family member....


Phil,
You asked for people to send pics of their deer.  I got an 8 pointer at 11am on 11/24 in Beecher, WI.

Rob Wartick from Appleton.


Well done sir!

And with that, another deer hunting season comes to a close...a successful Thanksgiving is behind us and it's time to bring on Christmas and the nasty elf machine!

Glass Half Full

Monday, Nov, 25 2013

Thanksgiving Week.
I love it.
Counting down to my favorite holiday of the year.

Thankful?
You bet.
Today on Pack Yak with Rich Ratay I will be challenged to not slip and start swearing about a tie game yesterday with the VikeQueens.

However, I'll explain to you why I actually am still a glass half full guy when it comes to where things stand with the team right now.

The Pack Yak Packer Player of the Game?
Easy.

The Insta Print Plus of the game?
Easy.

You'll see.....I mean hear....at 3:00-ish Monday.

JFK & HBY

Thursday, Nov, 21 2013

Our news director found this from 1960.

It's regarding radio ads for JFK on WHBY and is part of the on-line JFK Presidential Library.

Very cool.

Notice our address.
I LOVE the look of that old building.

Don't forget to email me your memories of that day 50 years ago on the 22nd.

I'll be reading, remembering on Friday, the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy.
