6:00 Happy Groundhog Day!
Will he see his shadow? Ask Ben, because he is the ultimate groundhog enthusiast. He has his Groundhog Day tree up and has been decorating it all week. Just kidding! He had to clean up around the house last night because he has to pretend to be an adult when his parents get into town. Dana kicked back to some Netflix and House (the show, not some new term for "chill"). Giselle made it to the gym....but instead just got a facial at the spa. Big shoutout to Emma, she won $25 to Nicollet Diner, thanks for being the first caller of the day #FirstCallerOfTheDay.
6:15 Vibes: The Cool New Ear Plugs
Thank you Jackson Mann, now Shark Tank star, for popping by the studio to hang out and tell us all about how his time on Shark Tank went, and how he got the idea for Vibes. This local business is helping to save your ears at Go Show.
6:30 The Trend
Queen Bey nearly broke the internet when she announced that she will be having twins. Punxsutawney Phil has come out of his hole and officially told us how much more winter we're going to have to deal with. The Big Game (Not the S-U-P-E-R B-O-W-L because it is trademarked) is on this weekend, and you can pretty much bet on everything, including the color of Lady Gaga's hair.
6:50 Spam Spam Spam Spam Spam Spam Spam Part II
Austin, Minnesota is the Spam capital of the world and Hawaii loves it too, so why not try it? Thank you Intern Anna for making NSFW egg sandwiches that weren't actually too bad (after you got over eating Spam).
7:15 Ask A Cop
We shared a Spam sammie with Officer Schmidt and he didn't complain...too much. Here's a question for him, if someone has a little bit of a drug charge and an underage drinking ticket, can they still become a cop? Are there still cop bars like the one in The Other Guys? How do you actually get pulled over for texting....or doing your makeup? All your cop questions answered this morning with Ben, Dana and Giselle.
Remember that Ben, Dana, Giselle and Intern Anna are making the plunge next week on Thursday in downtown Minneapolis. Check out the link here: https://reg.plungemn.org/team/bendanaandgiselleongo963
7:50 $1000 Minute
Erin couldn't name a Michael Jackson album but she still took home $60. Play along at our new time, 7:45am everyday.
8:15 Get To Know
Ben, Dana and Giselle are radio people, not marketing people, so they need some help with a slogan for the show. Yes, you've got that right, help us figure out just what we do and how we do it. You might even see it on a billboard someday!
8:50 Anxiety... as a Kid
That time in the Mario game when the music speeds up and you know your running out of time? That's the exact kind of childhood anxiety we're taking about here. Ben had some intense feelings about Heads Up Seven Up. Seriously, who didn't though? Dana couldn't even make it though an episode of America's Most Wanted without being convinced the kidnapper was strolling outside.
9:30 Thirsty Thursday
Thank you Eat Street Social for stopping by this morning. We got our thirsty on with their Figgy Honey Bear cream soda and their Old Fashioned. Check them out, and all their cocktails, mocktails, and homemade cream soda.
9:50 Weekend Shenanigans with Intern Anna
Ben, Dana, Giselle, and Intern Anna will be hanging out at Red Bull Crashed Ice on Saturday from 6-8pm. Come visit and hit the gong!
The Loppet is going on all weekend on and it might be the most romantic place this weekend with dogs, skiing, and luminaries.
Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery is hosting their Chili Cook-Off just in time for the Big Game.
