"Hippie Tom"

"Hippie Tom" from the TV show American Pickers joins me on the PhilCast Friday right after the 3:30 news.

I'm a HUGE fan of the show and when Frankie and Mike stop to rummage through a place in Wisconsin it's all the better. Such was the case last season when they dubbed this junk collector from Waterford, WI Hippie Tom.

Then in a later episode they bumped into Hippie Tom at Sturgis. Well, ever since the TV spot Hippie Tom has become somewhat of a celeb.

He has an amazing collection of collections....stuff....junk....treasures....call it what you will.

We'll chat about what it was like being a part of the popular show on the History Channel, and how his life has changed since being dubbed Hippie Tom.
