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.

Small Towns Don’t Escape Drug Abuse

Heroin use has spread far beyond from under the bridges of urban cities and into the quiet solitude of predominately white, middle-class bedroom towns. What's causing the rise in use in small town America? Maybe the 'country folk' are restless and looking for some cheap thrills? And their escape from boredom involved drugs

Doo Wop 11 Delivered Great Memories [VIDEO]

The huge audience filling the Z seats with 'rebellious' silver haired teenagers was a throwback to the days of Dick Clark's American Bandstand! When the Crystals ran out on stage singing Do Doo Ron Ron, there was a collective time travel trip back to the days when we owned '57 Chevy's, rubbed Brylcreem into our DA haircuts and carried going steady rings on necklaces

Two 12-Year-Old Fairhaven Heroes

The late Maya Angelou said, "I think a hero is any person really intent on making this a better place for all people." There are two young men from Fairhaven who deserve the moniker of hero. Gabe Monroe and his buddy, Will Benoit, are 12-year-olds who recently ran the entire New Bedford Half Marathon, not to show themselves or others that they could, but to raise money for other kids who couldn't run because they are suffering from cancer
