Spark plug spirit

Monday, Jun, 29 2015

It's the 4th of July countdown week already!

On Monday's show I'll be talking about my weekend at PhilCast SW where something very inspiring happened to me.


I feel it was a pretty special moment, and it involves something as ugly as this mouse nest-infested old drawer filled with time-capsule spark plugs.

Why this made the hair on the back of my neck stand up, when I tell the story to open the Monday show.

I don't believe in ghosts, but....

Another bear

Friday, Jun, 26 2015

Holy cow....I mean, BEAR!

This picture from someone's garage in the Antigo area, where a bear took cover in the rafters.

Of course this, plus another story I have, will prompt a PhilCast ArmBEARgeddon 2015 Alert to be sounded on the show Friday.

TOAD comes to Neenah

Wednesday, Jun, 24 2015

It has nothing to do with the frog-like creature.

It has everything to do with big-time bike racing in our state.

TOAD

Tour of America's Dairyland

Riders from around the world compete in a series of bike races across Wisconsin, and Neenah hosts on Thursday with the "Neenah Rocket Criterium" event.

Races will be held throughout the day for various categories/levels of riders.
If you have never experienced the sheer speed and excitement of watching a bike race in person I urge you to attend. It's a blast. I'll be there hanging out before the PhilCast on Thursday to watch. If I was faster, thinner and younger I'd be racing myself!

CLICK HERE to see the complete schedule and learn more about Thursday's TOAD stop in Neenah.

Milwaukee has Stones

Tuesday, Jun, 23 2015


I've instructed Reggie to play all Rolling Stones bump songs today in honor of tonight's Big Gig concert in Milwaukee.

Summerfest doesn't actually open until Wednesday, but tonight's concert could be considered a 'soft opening' for one of the biggest music festivals on the planet.

JAWS

Monday, Jun, 22 2015


How can it be?

How can "JAWS" be 40 years ago?

But alas, we're all getting older by the day. And indeed, it was the summer of 1975.

40 years ago this past weekend, the movie that changed everything for summer blockbusters was released.

Critics disliked it.
Too violent.
Remember, this was before there was even a PG-13 rating in the system.

Now, it's a classic.
We'll talk about some quirky JAWS facts when we chat about the movie on the Monday PhilCast.
