Barack Obama Might Tune In [PHIL-OSOPHY]
It wouldn't be the first time a prominent figure tuned in to The Phil Paleologos Show, but the thought of having a former president with 1420 WBSM on his Alexa is plausible.
Barack and Michelle Obama have reportedly purchased the beautiful Martha's Vineyard estate of Wyc Grousbeck, the owner of the Boston Celtics. After spending a summer there, the Obamas said they fell in love with the expansive 29-acre beachfront heritage.
The property includes a house with 7,000 square feet that features a chef's kitchen, seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a pool, a large sundeck, outdoor fireplace and two guest wings. About four years ago, Grousbeck had the property for sale for about $22 million, but that didn't go over too well, so the price has dropped to about $14.85.
Last year, the Obamas sold their summer home on the island for about $15 million. No one is saying how much they offered Grousbeck for his beachfront homestead.
But if the reports are accurate, 1420 WBSM could get some new listeners to my morning show, or Chris McCarthy's, Barry Richard's or Howie Carr's shows!
I mean, nothing's impossible. The word itself says it: I M POSSIBLE.
Why are you laughing?
