PhilCast Fail of the Day-or is it?

Tuesday, Apr, 7 2015

For Opening Day in Major League baseball Monday, Hostess tweeted this photo.

Cute, right?
A cupcake that looks like a baseball.
Perfect for Opening Day.

Until you get to the caption.

Um, wrong sport, sport.

People rampaged on Hostess for the goof on Twitter.

Hostess answered by saying they did it on purpose to generate interest. know, maybe they did because it works for them either way.

I want a baseball cupcake now.

The people you meet

Saturday, Apr, 4 2015

Every once in a while I get to take my show on the road for a special live broadcast. And one of the best things about making the effort (and trust me, it IS a team effort to make it all happen) is meeting some of the listeners who make it a point to stop to say hello.

Such was the case at the OSI broadcast on Good Friday.

As they got everything ready for their 5th-annual fun run, we were there live on the radio with them right up until the end of the show when the event was started by me live on WHBY.

That's race director Courtney there with her super hero tights, the theme of the event.

The people you meet at a live show...

--There was the guy who told me he was wearing his Aaron Rodgers jersey to the run because he was told there was a super hero theme.

--There was the mom who underwent spine surgery at OSI and was now back to her normal self and ready to race.

--There was her adorable daughter, Easter basket in hand, interviewed on the show. You can never go wrong with the sound of cute little girl on the radio.

--There was the cyclist who told me about a bike route I can take and his upcoming event this June.

--There was the guy who came out to sing on the air for the Wisconsin Badgers' pillow I gave away.

--And then there's always the person that shyly approaches the broadcast area to simply say something like, "Hi Phil, I just wanted to meet you in person. I listen all the time."

Thanks to all of you for that.

The PhilCast will be on the road for the Friday show, live from The Orthopedic & Sports Institute of the Fox Valley in Appleton.

In fact, I'll be starting the run/walk live on the air right at the end of the show today...should be chaotic and fun at the same time if we can pull this off.

I'm not sure if they're giving me the starter's gun or not.

Either way, the plan is to give the command to start LIVE on the PhilCast at 5:58...or would that be 5:58-ish? We'll see.

Meantime, we'll have Mary Rhode out there with us for "Chadoin' This Weekend?" and Pippa in the flesh for her "ReciPIPPA the Week" as well.

I've got that Wisconsin Badgers' buckwheat pillow to give to the first listener who cranks out a little "On Wisconsin" fight song live on the air for us.

For more info about the run/walk, CLICK HERE....and drop out to say hi even if you're not taking part in the event.

Also, Reggie the executive producer will be taking some pictures and live-tweeting them from the broadcast. CLICK HERE to follow me on Twitter to see those.

Happy Easter.

Stones to Milwaukee; Keith to PhilCast

Tuesday, Mar, 31 2015

June 23rd.
The Rolling Stones roll into Milwaukee to open Summerfest a day early on the shores of Lake Michigan.

And somehow, Keith Richards is still alive and kicking and playing.

In honor of the big concert announcement today, I'll be digging deep into the classic clips audio vault to pull out one of the early interviews I did with puppet Keith from 1998 in another radio life.

We'll open the Tuesday PhilCast with some classic Stones.
