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.

DOB Predicts Diseases

Let's make a friendly bet. I'll bet you the astrological sign you're born under is a predictor for certain kinds of diseases that you'll most likely suffer from someday. Do you accept my bet or not?

Raccoon Hitches Ride

I guess there are no taxis in Ocala National Forest. This little guy resorted to hitching a ride on the back of an alligator in the Ocklawaha River. This might be the bravest critter I have ever seen! Luckily, the alligator submerged and the raccoon swam away to safety shortly after this photo was taken
