VD

Friday, Feb, 14 2014

Yeah sure it's a fake Hallmark holiday in my world, but that does not mean the PhilCast doesn't celebrate a special day PhilCast style.

Soooo,
Today we open the show with a bit we've done a couple of times before that always cracks me up....and it seems quite appropriate to do it again today of all days; "Missed Connections" from Craig's List.

Because nothing says romance like some random post on-line from someone so desperate they're trying to pick up someone they saw while checking out at a Wal-Mart last week.

Change the name

Thursday, Feb, 13 2014

Today I'll open the PhilCast by laying out what I believe is my case for tossing the name of the airport you see to the right.

Some facts and figures from the real world fuel my position, with emotion taken from the equation.

Take territorial pettiness off the table and think about what's best for the airport and the Valley.

"Regional" is the equivalent of when they use the word 'cozy' in real estate ads. Translation: small.

Outa-What? Outa-Who?

Seriously?

Business is the bottom line, and that's why the name needs to go. We'll chat at 3:00.

Welcome newest member of PhilCast team

Tuesday, Feb, 11 2014

I've been teasing it over on Twitter for a while now, and since you are enough of a fan of the PhilCast to be checking my blog I'll release the news here first.

Today on the Tuesday PhilCast we begin a new daily segment that will air right after the 3:30 news update.

Welcome Erin Davisson of WFRV Channel 5.

Every afternoon we'll take a few minutes to chat about what's up with Erin and what's up in the news at Channel 5 for that night.

It's your chance to get to know the person behind the 'news anchor' you watch on the tube (which now of course is an outdated term. Just like when people say 'don't touch that dial.' What dial?)

Erin 'gets it'. I know that because I know she listens to the PhilCast when she can. That's why I'm excited to be adding her to our daily lineup. Buckle up...it could be a bumpy ride at times. But I'm sure you are up to the task Erin....I mean....you sit next to Zalaski every night.

Here we go.....

Dog Show!

Sunday, Feb, 9 2014

Move over Winter Olympics because it's time for the dog show.
Yup, it's Westminster time again, when Madison Square Garden goes to the dogs.

Monday and Tuesday night will find me right in front of the TV watching this annual event.

I'll be talking about a Wisconsin connection too.

That's Petey with handler Kevin Gasper of Oconomowoc. Petey is one of two dogs owned by Juneau Wisconsin's Linda Blaser.

Her breed is the Field Spaniel.

What great looking dogs. If I had a field to let them run in I'd have one.
