    Out our studio this morning...

    snow

    Roads completely sucked, schools closed, and still it was time to come do a little radio. Well worth it with this view out our WIFC studio. I took this just after 5am..I call it "snow cake"..because the snow is just cakin' on the trees big time!! So pretty..(photo by Dave Kallaway)

  • Saturday Night Live made the right move...

    Posted by Dave Kallaway

    Saturday Night Live set the right tone this week by having these kids sing first to start the show. We look for buffers all the time when going from one story to the next..this worked well to go from the horrible shooting story in Newtown, CT to doing a show where they're job is to be funny. Good job SNL...

    Posted by Dave Kallaway

    I gave up the debate of "who should be allowed in the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame"..wasn't worth it anymore. But based on their criteria..anybody you can mention in any kind of music should be allowed in the Hall...listen!

    disco

    The best part of doing WIFC's Disco Cures Cancer is handing over the money. Here's the WIFC crew with our check for over $17,000 along with the "keepers of the fund." Aspirus Cancer Care and their staff use the money we raise for people & and their families dealing with cancer. Thanks to Aspirus and all our sponsors for making "Disco" a great event again this year.

  • Will Winter Wonderland add even more lights??

    Will Winter Wonderland add even more lights??

    winter

    Had to ask the questions everyone is asking..when I broadcasted at Marshfield Rotary's Winter Wonderland this year. First question.."what's your light bill?" The answer.."about $20 per night." The next was about adding lights..and really..at some point will it ever be enough. The answer "we've probably reached the limit for the amount of lights we'll have at Winter Wonderland." THAT IS NO PROBLEM..I mean WOW..they're at over a million Christmas lights in Wildwood Park and it looks fantastic! I hope you go see it with your family..it's lit the rest of the month!

  • How Many Walks for Mary Will We Need?

    How Many Walks for Mary Will We Need?

    walk

    Stacy Cole and I went over to the Marathon County Courthouse for the "Walk for Mary"..walk number two. Why? There's a woman who accused of killing her boyfriend's dog slowly with wounds, feeding the dog bleach and then journaling about how she enjoyed the process...truly sick. The woman accused pleaded "Not Guilty" today in court..her trial will start in February.

     

    mary

    People who flat out don't want to see anyone get away with cruelty to animals gathered today with signs..some brought their own dogs..some shedding tears over what had happened to Mary..all participating in the "Walk for Mary"...my question is..How many walks will it take before there's serious justice for those who commit these crimes against man's best friend?
