National Hamburger Day

Thursday, May, 28 2015

Today, May 28th, is National Hamburger Day.

That can only mean one thing;

We need some place to deliver some hamburgers to the PhilCast studio today to celebrate this monumental occasion.

I'll eat a light lunch in anticipation of someone doing the right thing between 3:00 and 6:00 today.

B.A.B.E.S.

Tuesday, May, 26 2015


Today on the PhilCast, we'll talk about a local organization that has been helping families in our area for over a decade, yet you may not have ever heard of them.

B.A.B.E.S.

One of the directors joins me at 4:30 today to talk about the types of services they provide for families in need in our area.

I recently found out about them when I was asked to be an auctioneer at their annual fund raising banquet with LeRoy Butler. I was so impressed that I wanted to share more info about them with you. We'll do that at 4:30-ish on the Tuesday show.

We go to Indy Friday

Friday, May, 22 2015


I'll open up the Memorial Day Weekend Friday show with a trip down to Indy to talk about the Indy 500 with long-time Journal/Sentinel motor sports writer and friend of the PhilCast Dave Kallmann reporting.


Covering racing over the course of a few decades for the paper, Dave has forgotten more about racing than many people ever knew. So I always like to hear what he has to say about what is called the "Greatest Spectacle in Racing."

Because she was on the PhilCast earlier in the week, of course I'll be cheering for Pippa Mann in the pink and white car. But do I think she'll win it all?

Nope.

It's tough to say who will drink the traditional milk from the glass bottle in Victory Circle at the end of a long day, but here goes...

Will Power.

(I know, if you don't follow Indy racing that name sounds like it's made up. It's not.)

--Proven champion

--Fast car

--Great team behind him

--Motivated...the one thing missing from his long list of accomplishments is a win at the Indy 500, something every Indycar driver wants on his resume.

The "Tray Typer"

Thursday, May, 21 2015

Here it is...
The Tray Typer

KFC is trying these out in Germany and they're a big hit.

No one wants to use their phone while eating greasy chicken and certainly in this day and age no one can dare put their phone down and not use it while they eat!

Solution; The Tray Typer.

It connects to your phone and you can type away on your tray while you down that greasy chicken.

I guess you can say this thing is
"Finger Clickin' Good".

Indy 500 driver on the Wed. PhilCast

Wednesday, May, 20 2015


Pippa Mann, the first-ever British-born female driver to race in the Indy 500 joins me on the show today at 4:45-ish.

This will be her fourth Indy 500 start, and she is one of two female drivers that will be in the field on Sunday.

Watch for the pink and white #63 car sponsored by Susan G. Komen, raising awareness of breast cancer with the colors.
