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 the Recyclist in Kaukauna
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.

Still after Lance

Tuesday, Feb, 7 2012

On the Tuesday PhilCast...
They're still after Lance, and it makes no sense.

The World Anti-Doping Assoc. now wants all the info gathered here in the U.S. by the feds regarding possible charges of fraud against the greatest cyclist of our generation Lance Armstrong.

On Friday it was reported that there would be no charges. The idea here was that if Armstrong had indeed lied about taking illegal drugs while he rode on a team basically sponsored by the government (U.S. Postal Service) then he and the team took money under false pretenses and could be charged.

No doping. No charges.

But now WADA wants all that info from the investigation to go to them for possible charges. What makes this ridiculous is the fact that this all dates back to the early 90's when, because of a statue of limitations, there could be no charges brought against Lance even if they wanted to do that.

It just goes to show what I said in the headline to this post--they're still after Lance.

Also on the Tuesday show...
My take on the TV show that's getting a lot of buzz today. Will "Smash" be a smash for NBC? Before you laugh it off guys, let me inform you that she's one of the stars of the show...





We'll discuss the show on the PhilCast today.

Check out the show live over the air, live on-line or later on your own time in podcast version. And as always, thanks for listening.

Later.
