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.

When researchers recently looked at data on how parents perceive their overweight young children, they learned that 94.9 percent believe the kids' size to be "just right."

Paying It Forward [VIDEO]

I've heard the expression that if you can't be the pencil to write someone's happiness, then be an eraser to help remove someone's sadness. In this video, you're going to meet Ridge Quarles, a Mexican Restaurant employee, a lady in a wheelchair who asks Ridge an unusual request and a local doctor who couldn't believe what he was seeing!

In a video that's gone around the world, I hope this short clip has special meaning to you, to hopefully inspire you to pay it forward, whether it's smiling to a stranger, giving blood, mentoring a kid, volunteering at a charity or just being kind to others
