Oscar nominations PhilCast style

Thursday, Jan, 16 2014

The 2014 Oscar nominations were announced this morning and as per usual, I have not seen a single movie nominated for pretty much anything.

I WILL however be watching the ceremony come March (late this year due to the Olympics).

I will also be covering the nomination story today with a guy who knows a thing or two about movies.

Reviewer and my brother in broadcasting Mark Reardon from KMOX in St. Louis will join me on the PhilCast Thursday afternoon at 4:30-ish to give me his take on all this.

Always fun to talk to Mark. Now there's a guy who knows movies.

Frank Caliendo back on the PhilCast

Tuesday, Jan, 14 2014


One of my favorite funny guys, Frank Caliendo joins me on the PhilCast Wednesday right after the 4:30 news.

A Wisconsin guy, Frank has always made me laugh with his impressions and we've always had fun in past interviews.

I'm looking forward to our chat. He's doing a lot of new characters these days at his ESPN gig.
My all-time favorite though remains his Madden, which he doesn't do much any more. Maybe during the interview I'll have to ask what coach Madden is up to these days in retirement.

Frank will be in Green Bay next Friday the 24th at the Weidner Center. More info/tix, click here.

Best dressed at the 'Globes'

Monday, Jan, 13 2014


The Golden Globes last night came off as kind of a hot mess. There were lots of mistakes and no shortage of rather odd speeches.

But one of the reasons we like to watch at our house is for the fashion.

My pick for best dressed last night was this Ralph Lauren red number complete with chic cape, which is very IN I guess.

That's one of the stars of the movie '12 Years a Slave', Lupita Nyong'o.

Classy and stunning.

This picture makes the dress look a little less red and a little more orange, but if you watched you know it was as red as red can be.

Tonight there will e a special Globes edition of 'Fashion Police' on TV.

We'll see what Joan Rivers and company pick as their best and worst dressed.

Although I am not sure why I am at all interested in the opinion of a woman with purple hair and a ton of tattoos....yes, I'm talking to you Kelly Osbourne.

When it comes to worst dressed of the night I have plenty to work with...

--Julia Roberts looked like she had a white shirt tucked into a black dress on top.

--Jennifer Lawrence looked like she was stuffed into a white barrel with black straps.

--Sandra Bullock's dress looked like she couldn't make up her mind so they sewed three together.

--And then there's my winner, thee worst dressed at the Globes is....
Lena Dunham, a banana gone bad on the red carpet.

Weigh-In Wednesday bigger and better

Wednesday, Jan, 8 2014

Thanks to my friends at Lake Park Swim and Fitness for sponsoring this year's "Weigh-In Wednesday's" on the PhilCast....my annual quest for us to lose some winter weight and get in better shape between New Year's and Easter.

All listeners who jump on board and report in from time to time to check in on how they are doing will be eligible for a nice prize...a full year's membership at Lake Park. And heck, if you play along and don't live in the Valley, we'll take care of you with some PhilCast gear if your name is drawn when we conclude on the week before Easter.


Lets do this together and have some fun along the way if we can. I think it helps to be accountable....so be accountable to PhilCast Nation. Drop me an email....post on our Facebook fan page on Wednesdays or even call during the segment to report in. Wednesdays right after the 3:00 news.

A vending machine burrito

Wednesday, Jan, 8 2014

Would YOU do it?

Would you buy and eat a burrito from a vending machine?

On the Wednesday PhilCast I have a story about the new burrito-dispensing machines that even include toppings.

Yeah, sour cream with my vending machine burrito.
Good times.

I think it all sounds disgusting and can't imagine ever eating this.

But that won't stop us from imagining what a talking burrito vending machine experience would be like.

Hear it on the show today in the 4:00 hour.
