Pathetic really...

Thursday, Feb, 2 2012

So basically February has three things to hang its hat on; President's Day, Valentine's Day and of course today, Ground Hog Day. Pretty pathetic when you have to celebrate getting up at the crack of dawn in PA to pull a big rodent out of a cage and make up some folklore about how long winter is going to last. At least he has a cool name!



Still, it's all Feb. has so why not embrace it?

Yet near as I can tell there is no 'official' Phil the groundhog in Appleton. Therefore we at the PhilCast have decided to start up our own new tradition.

You'll be able to hear a little something called Ground Dog Day today on the show. Should be fun. And as per usual on this day I will play back for you the 1990 classic bit I did with the late/great Don Vogel while doing mornings at WISN together...the two news geeks covering the assassination of the ground hog.

Also today...towel use. Is it necessary to use a fresh towel after EVERY shower or bath? We had an interesting discovery and discussion about this off the air on Wednesday in the studio so I have decided to bring it ONTO the air this afternoon.

Join us at 3:00 live on-line, over the air, or catch the podcast on your own time.

Later....

Gabby picks Super Bowl winner

Monday, Jan, 30 2012

Super Bowl week has arrived, and try as I might I just am not as into it this year as I usually am. I guess the giant (pardon the pun) letdown of the Packers not being there just hurts too much yet. 


So in an effort to make things a little more interesting I did my own little 'pick the winner' contest today using my dog Gabby.


As you'll see from the video, this was all very high-tech and scientific. 


Who would the Gabster say wins this Sunday? Will it be Eli and the Giants or Brady and the Pats?


I'll be talking about this and other Super Bowl stories on the PhilCast today, but since you are loyal enough to be reading this, YOU get the scoop first. Just CLICK HERE to watch the video for yourself right now and see which team Gabby says will win the Super Bowl on Sunday!

TV game changer

Wednesday, Jan, 25 2012

On the Wednesday PhilCast I've got a story about how as of today you can earn points by simply watching TV. I think this is a game changer and is gonna be huge.

Also new, McBites from McDonald's.

But what's the diff between McBites and McNuggets? Well, there IS a difference they say. We will discuss.

It's "Weigh-In Wednesday" on the PhilCast too, and I've got my report for week three. How did you do? Let me know. We've gotta get through this weight loss thing together.


Speaking of that, you might want to exercise while you are in really cold conditions. It's got something to do with 'brown fat', which sounds gross, but it is actually a good thing. The story today in the 3:00 hour of the show.


Later.

You a movie buff?

Tuesday, Jan, 24 2012

The Oscar nominations came out on Tuesday.
Are you a movie buff?
Think you know who will win this year?

I've only seen one of the what seems like the 50 movies nominated this year, and that would be Woody's "Midnight In Paris" which I liked very much.

Will it win best picture?
I think there is a better chance of the Packers winning the Super Bowl this year than "Midnight" winning for best picture.

It seems like the hot choice right now is "The Artist", but I prefer to have sound in my movies. After all, I'm an audio guy.

If you fashion yourself a movie person and would like to make your picks on the show today give me a call when the subject comes up. I'd like to pick one listener to go up against in selecting the big five categories:

Best Picture
Best Actor
Best Actress
Best Supporting Actor
Best Supporting Actress

We'll see who comes out on top. This way it makes watching the actual Oscars program more interesting to me. And of course if you beat me out we'll come up with some PhilCast gear for you as a prize.

How's that?
You know my numbers, right?
281-1150
or toll free
1-866-887-1150
