BAM! It's Oly time!

Friday, Jul, 27 2012

Finally.
Time to start following the medal count, and it starts out with a bang.

Michael Phelps takes on his arch rival Ryan Lochte Saturday in the 400-meter individual medley.

This is gonna be good stuff.

I must admit I enjoy watching the Winter Olympics more than summer, but that's only because there is nothing else to do in winter but sit glued to my TV.

I'll be talking about the Games each day on the PhilCast after the 4:30 news, and I must warn you that if something big happens I WILL cover it on my show. I am not going to sit on info. In this day and age I wish you the best of luck if you are going to try to keep yourself in the dark until the prime-time network coverage of the Olympics.
....

Remember to plug away when it comes to a weekend event...or just chat up your plans for the weekend when we do "Chadoin' This Weekend?" on the show after the 4:00 news today. The segment only makes sense if listeners USE it to share what's going on throughout the state. As long as people are doing that I will continue with the segment. But if participation drops so will the segment....so don't sit on your hands....you can call us live at 1-866-887-1150 or locally 281-1150 are the RED OX PhilPhone numbers...or post up at the PC Facebook fan page: CLICK HERE to get there.

#$%^&*

Thursday, Jul, 26 2012

People who know me know that I don't swear much, especially at work. Today I'll have the story about how you people with the *&^%$ loud mouths in the @#$%^ workplace may just be hurting your careers. What U.S. city does the most swearing at work?

Also on the Thursday show, our lack of satisfaction with the hotels we stay in.

Lips LaBelle in-studio with his weekly Hollywood news and gossip and an Olympic update as well.

Plus I'm thinking about trying to get "Shoeless Rick" to parachute into AirVenture today just for kicks.

I don't 'get' lobster

Wednesday, Jul, 25 2012

I don't 'get' lobster. Never have.
I know a lot of people consider lobster to be a 'special' meal.

But I ask, what's so special about this?

It looks creepy.

It's a lot of work for little reward to me anyway.

Take away the butter and what's left? A meal that, the few times I have had it, leaves me still hungry!

I bring it up today on the show because of a story about a rather large lobster named "Larry" that has had a rather interesting turn of events at a restaurant.

Also Wednesday we'll be live from the EAA AirVenture, have some fun facts during our PhilCast Olympic update and hear another episode of "As the Ring Turns" to find out if Reggie has even bothered yet to start seriously looking for his lost wedding ring.

Taking stock in the Packers

Tuesday, Jul, 24 2012

Never before has a piece of paper both meant so much and so little at the same time.

I guess it all depends on how big a fan of the Green Bay Packers you are.

Have one of these on your wall and you are an owner of an NFL team....sorta.

At least it gives you the right to attend the annual shareholders meeting at Lambeau, which is taking place today.

We'll talk more about it on the show Tuesday. We'll also talk about the new sponsor of this season's Super Bowl halftime show. Sure it's only the middle of summer, but camp opens this week and in my humble opinion it's never too early to talk a little PACK!

Also today...
A crazy story about the government missing the mark when it comes to trying to tax a family for a piece of art that is basically worthless.

Plus, live updates on AirVenture and the search for Reggie's missing wedding ring.

Talk to you at 3:00-ish.
