Two big cuts today

Thursday, Jun, 28 2012

OK, we've established that this is a very hot Thursday. Lets move on from that.

Today on the PhilCast, news about two celebs getting cut.

Ann Curry says goodbye to the Today show. Apparently Matt Lauer, her co-worker, didn't really like her to put it mildly. In fact, the buzz is that Matt was part of the reason Ann is leaving the show. Huh, imagine that...one air talent getting the another shoved out the door because he didn't like her. Not like that's ever happened before. I'll take Ann over Matt any day by the way.

The second bit of news about someone getting cut...

I had not known about this until SuperFan Judy sent me an email after I mentioned Rich Ratay of Pack Yak fame on the show the other day. I said I hadn't seen him yet this summer and wondered how long his hair would be by the time we started up 'The Yak' this season.

Judy's mail informed me of the shattering news. Apparently Rich had already posted photos of the event on his Facebook page. As you can see he has given up on his quest for Clay Matthews locks!




Ironic that I'm now the one between the two of us with the long hair. I continue to go for the crazy old Hollywood actor look. It's either that or the "Barry from Storage Wars" look sans the gray hair.

Summefest time

Wednesday, Jun, 27 2012

Opening day for Summerfest today. So I decided to go find some vintage sound to use on the show today in honor of that fact. We'll be playing clips from the one time in my life I actually got to PLAY Summerfest.

Very cool and tons of fun.
Yup, that's me on the right with the white guitar workin' it with former producer "Davey Ray Braun" on stage. Blind Lemon, Don Vogel, to the right.

Summerfest 1990.
One I'll never forget because that year I was actually in the band!

We had a couple of hottie listeners we called the Vogelettes that had to come on stage from time to time to point Don in the right direction! After all, he was blind.

I remember during one break between songs the Vogelettes came out to wipe down Don and give him a drink.

Even on stage he was hilarious, telling the crowd, "Good thing my wife is blind too!"

The late, great Don Vogel...most talented man I have ever worked with in my long radio career.

One month away

Wednesday, Jun, 27 2012

One month from today. It all begins one month from today.
What?
Hint.

Yup, the Olympics.

They dropped down the official rings over the river today signaling that London is indeed ready to go one month out.

Of course this means I'll have to do another PhilCast Olympic Update, Brought to You Byyyy.... (insert company name here).

I'm really kinda baffled as to why no company has jumped on board to be the 'official' sponsor of these segments. Although I don't like the summer games as much as the winter games I will still be talking about the Olympics each day that they are taking place.

I wish the world could get along like the athletes every couple of years out there in the real world, but I guess that is too much to ask. That's part of what I like about the Olympics. All the fighting is put aside for just a bit and it becomes about the love of the sport.
