Brewers Fever

Wednesday, Apr, 18 2012

It's "Hump Day" and the PhilCast is ready to send you to Miller Park to see the Brewers in action!

Today we will be giving away TWO PhilCast Family Four Packs to see the games on Friday and Saturday night.

When you hear us play "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" on the show just call in to win.

But of course you know the one catch...if you go on us you have to phone in a report to my voice mail that we can play back for everyone to hear on the Monday show. 

So if you can go and you're not afraid of playing the role of PhilCast reporter or sorts, then give us a call this afternoon...and Go Brewers!

To tweet or not to tweet?

Tuesday, Apr, 17 2012

To tweet or not to tweet, that is the question today on the PhilCast.

There is an interesting debate taking place across the country regarding the question of people being allowed to use Twitter in the courtroom.

On the one hand some judges say it can be distracting to the jurors and could lead to information going out to them that they shouldn't see. But on the other hand reporters ask how tweeting is any more distracting than taking notes.

Right now there is no rule that covers this and judges are making decisions as they go from case to case. Some even allow photos to be taken as long as no member of the jury is in any picture.

Should people/reporters have the right to tweet in the courtroom or should we just be telling everyone to turn everything off while they are in a court of law? Heck, some jurors have even been tweeting during the trial they are sitting in on.

We'll discuss on the show Tuesday afternoon.

I'll also have an Olympic update today. Plus, the freakish new diet that brides are using to be able to fit into their wedding gowns.

Back to work Monday....

Monday, Apr, 16 2012

So Howz Yer Weekend? We'll discuss on the Monday PhilCast. Feel free to call in during the first hour of the show today to fill us in on what you were up to over the weekend. Mine included learning all about mourning dove nesting (more about that on the show). If you can't call in leave a post on our Facebook Fan page and I'll be going over those as well. CLICK HERE to leave a post.


50 years ago today this handsome guy took over the news desk at CBS television and would become the most trusted man in America.

How times have changed. How many people actually even watch a network newscast each evening now like we used to do. 

And how many people could even name the anchors that now have the job on the big three networks?

Also today, how the  heck did I miss a local beauty pageant over the weekend in the Valley? The countdown to June's Miss Wisconsin pageant is on. Is there still time to add a celebrity radio talk show host as a judge????

mmmm, bacon

Friday, Apr, 13 2012

No secret that I'm in a club that feels bacon just makes everything taste better. But on a sundae?

Yup...Burger King is testing out its new bacon sundae in the Nashville area.

Too bad, because if it were available around here I would try one.

The combination of chocolate sweet and salty is nothing new and is a winner with me.

One of my favorite treats at the Wisconsin State Fair each year is to buy myself a small bag of milk chocolate-covered potato chips. Sweet and salty at the same time just seems to work for me.
Chime in on this afternoon's PhilCast if you would like because I'll be bringing this up...along with Anderson Cooper crying like a little girl and more.
