Phil Paleologos

As a kid, I listened to the night sounds of AM radio on my pink and silver Pacific transistor-6 radio (made in Japan) that picked up the great 50,000 watt clear channel stations around the country. I can still hear the smooth-voiced KMOX announcer, John McCormick, "the man who walked and talked at midnight." I was hooked! Since then, I fell in love and married the airwaves. In the fall of 2015, I will celebrate my golden anniversary, 50 wonderful years in broadcasting. From my early days as a teenager in Hot Springs, Ark., I began a career that took me from my hometown radio station to The Talk America Radio Network. My American Breakfast radio show was syndicated nationally to many major and small markets, one of my proudest lifetime achievements. Another dream was realized when I was named as one of the nation's Top One Hundred Talk Show Hosts by TALKERS MAGAZINE. I'm so grateful for all the opportunities I've experienced in this great industry, including hosting the morning drive on The New 1420...WBSM.

Todd Baptista Is A Man For All Seasons

If St. Cecilia is the saint watching over musicians, then Todd Baptista is the patron saint of Doo Wop artists. Nationally recognized as an award winning author and producer, Todd's passion to help preserve the classic American art form called Doo Wop pales in importance to what he does with his wonderful wife, Kristen and one of their two sons, Devon, helping the destitute and poor living in challenging conditions in the mountains of Honduras! For the next few weeks, I'll be posting Todd's emails from his mission site, to keep you in touch with all he does to alleviate suffering and promote good health in these hard working people! Let's start at the very beginning

Color Discord

I'm amazed at the dress debate: The White and gold, no, blue and black, dress that the mother of the bride wore, that melted the Internet. Kasey and I talked about and even agreed on its colors. Other employees came in to the studio to give us their two cents

Best Food Found In Jail [VIDEO]

You've heard the expression, it's all about location, location, location. Taking it to the extreme, it's probably the most unlikely location for a great restaurant to be inside a prison! Voted the best place to eat in Cardiff, the capital of Wales, is THE CLINK CYMRU, that opened two years ago. The competition was fierce, beating out 950 other top shelf restaurants.
