The weekend is here

Friday, Jun, 29 2012

Head over to the PhilCast Facebook Fan Page to write about your weekend plans or promote an event taking place. CLICK HERE to get there, then listen at 4:10 to find out what people are up to this weekend.


There is still time to enter the Tour de France contest. Just CLICK HERE to do that. Just pick who you think will win it and YOU could win too! I'll be doing a race preview today in the debut Tour de France update report. These reports will air each day after the 4:30 news on the show.

Pippa has a recipe for us as usual today. And I'll also have my review of Charlie Sheen's new TV show "Anger Management" from last night.

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.
