Panhandling for better boobs

Thursday, Jul, 19 2012

Hey we're finally back to a full PhilCast on Thursday. After being away in London, Lips LaBelle will join me at 4:30-ish to talk about his trip and then his Hollywood news and gossip after that.



The Tour de France update will be moved up to 4:20 today so we're ready for Lips, who sent me this photo from his garden tour trip to London. Flowers and bikes I guess.
He'll have the scoop today.

I think he has some Charlie Sheen news too.

Also on the Thursday show...

She's a panhandler in Ohio that has garnered international attention this week.

Why?

She's panhandling to raise money for a boob job.

That's unique.
I can see the need, but the method has a lot of people up in arms.

My take when we discuss this afternoon on the showgrum.

Plans of mice and broadcasters

Tuesday, Jul, 17 2012

Over 30 years as a broadcaster. You think you've seen it all. Nope. Here's the scoop on WI Farm Tech Days and the live PhilCast that wasn't Tuesday.

Once this sky moved in we thought there might be issues with us having set up a complete studio outside under a tent. That's because the tent felt like it was about to blow away at times when this blew in.

I had driven all the way to New London from Milwaukee Tuesday morning and spent a couple of very HOT hours getting the lay of the land along with a couple of recorded interviews.

At least I scored a PhilCast exclusive one-on-one with Governor Scott Walker which was pretty funny.

We had about a half-dozen guests lined up to join me live from 3-5 from there Tuesday. In fact when the voice came on the loudspeaker announcing that due to weather the grounds needed to be evacuated immediately I was sitting there talking to one of the owners of the land this monster of a show is being held on. He said to me, "Well, I guess the interview is canceled." Yup.

Two golf cart rides and a bus ride later I got to my parked car and joined the mass exit...only to have to drive through a driving rain at times as I headed back to the radio station in Appleton.

Turns out not eating a thing all day (not a thing) left me really hungry too. At 7:00-ish I finally sat down to eat....TWICE. I'll tell the story on the show today after the Brewers' game on WHBY.

What a Tuesday it was!

Farmer Phil

Tuesday, Jul, 17 2012

Wisconsin Farm Technology Days opens today near New London and I'll be down on the farm as Farmer Phil all day long.

The PhilCast will be broadcasting live from the WHBY booth near the media tent area....about in the middle of the whole shootin' match. Stop over and say hi if there. And listen today to hear all sorts of interviews and chat related to all things farming from 3-5.

Weekend?

Sunday, Jul, 15 2012

Old cars.
Yeah, that was fun in Iola, Wisconsin over the weekend.

My favorite old car?

Not this one, but it was close.

I'll cover that on the Monday showgrum for sure.

Lets just say it was HOT out there on Friday.




Old boats.
Yeah, plenty to look at in King, Wisconsin at Clearwater Harbor.

Too rich for my blood but it's at least fun to look at on a hot afternoon.

Iced-cold beer and iced cream were purchased, but no boats for me here.



And speaking of sweet treats, no trip to Iola each summer is complete without a stop at the Crystal Cafe for not only the fantastic pie but an iced-cold milk from the tapper to wash it down.

I went with the banana cream while Mrs. Biggest went with some sort of fruit combo crumble ala mode.

I can tell you this much....she usually never finishes all her food, which gives me a shot at sampling some leftovers.

Not in this case.

"Howz Yer Weekend?" We'll talk weekends in the first hour of the Monday show.

Call in live 281-1150 or 1-866-887-1150 the Red Ox PhilPhone numbers....or if you can not call just post up on our PC Facebook page HERE.
