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.

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

Would Mandatory Voting Change Anything?

The idea of mandatory, obligatory, compulsory voting, when people are required to vote or face hefty fines or other punishment, sounds crazy in our free society, but it's actually the law in some countries, and now, President Obama is speaking out in support of mandatory voting!

President Obama was asked about the negative effect on money on U
