6:00 Polar Plunge Day

Today is the day Ben, Dana, Giselle and Intern Anna make the plunge into the really cold water, and of course it's about 4 degrees outside. Ben had a date last night and really likes her! She, luckily, passed the big three: Jesus, Obama, and Vikings. Uffda. Dana had a little bit more of a rough night waking up at 2:30am, thinking he was late for work and turns out he wasn't. Giselle signed a big girl apartment lease, yay G!

6:15 BOLO 

Ben, Dana and Giselle received an email from building security regarding a woman that has been sneaking in and changing her clothing inside secured areas. Weird, right? Obviously with Ben, Dana, Giselle and Intern Anna arriving so early, this is a little concerning that a random woman is changing in the offices. You will be shocked when you hear what they found out!

6:30 The Trend 

You can now register at Dominos for your wedding, yes that's right, pizza lovers can now put 'Za on your wedding gift list. Authorities have located Tom Brady's Super Bowl jersey. A man found a used condom at the bottom of a bottle of jam. Ew. Just so much ew.

6:50 What do B, D and G look like?

Do our voices match the image in your head? Apparently listeners think that Ben always sports a beard, Dana looks like hardcore hipster, Giselle wears heels everywhere and Intern Anna looks like Meg from family guy. Find out if the voice matches the face. Why does every one think Ben and Dana are so short?

7:15 Ask A Cop 

Today is the day, and this is all Officer Schmidt's fault that the weather is so stinking' cold. Nah, everyone is excited to take the plunge for a cause and support the Special Olympics of Minnesota. On Thursday's Ask A Cop, is it safe or legal to keep the kids inside of the car when you are just running in for a quick second? Well, it depends. Keys inside or outside? Is there a car starter you can keep on to keep it warm in the winter? Officer Schmidt has the answer for you!

7:50 $1000 Minute 

Jim played a round of $1000 Minute this morning at the new time 7:45am. Play along everyday with Ben, Dana and Giselle.

8:15 Get To Know 

Happy National Pizza Day! Here's your excuse to go crazy on the carbs. Who knew that people could get so heated about pineapple on pizza? Either you love it or hate it. So let's Get To Know everyone's favorite go to two-topping pizza. Ben is a classic pepperoni and green peppers or beef and onions. Giselle is switching things up with bacon and feta. Dana can add jalapeños to almost anything. Here's Giselle's wild card for you: Nutella and bananas. WTF.

8:50 Do Something Nice Today 

Do it to be a good person and just to feel good about yourself. God bless and bless up. Need some inspiration? Ben, Dana and Giselle helped you find the best things to make someone else's day a little brighter and better.

9:30 Thirsty Thursday

Check it out, it might be the best Valentine you can give (or get for yourself). Check it out, buy it, Go local.

9:50 Weekend Shenanigans with Intern Anna 

FRIDAY! Inbound BrewCo is dropping their Russian Imperial Stout. Seriously drink this beer.

612 Brew is celebrating four years this weekend with a giant party starting on Friday.
