HEY!  IT’S FRIDAY!!!  WERE CAPPING OFF THE WEEK WITH SOME FUN!

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYBODY!

In the face of this crazy week with everything from the President coming to town to our transmitter acting up to the shrinkage-inducing cold weather, it was great to wrap the week up on a high note!

We had the chance to hear about an absolutely hilarious film that is going to be shot in Gwinn with local talent that deals with a bunch of neighborhood kids who get involved in a truly epic snowball battle on a snow day.

We also had the chance to finally collect on our bet with one of our loyal listeners that was made on the Packers-Steelers Super Bowl battle.  So let’s get to the re-cap and head into the weekend!

AN EPIC SNOWBALL FIGHT COMES TO LIFE HERE IN MARQUETTE COUNTY.

FILMMAKER AND PRODUCER BEAU CHAPUT.

Beau Chaput stopped in at the Sunny Studios today to join Mark and Walt in the Morning and talk about the short film “Ice Brigade” that he is directing and producing.  The film is the story of a massive snow fortress built in Gwinn by a group of neighborhood kids and how they defend it from being overtaken by a rival group of kids who are intent on claiming it as their own.

The film is featuring area kids as the actors and extras and Beau talked about casting calls going on this weekend in Marquette and in Gwinn to fill out the on-screen roster.  He described the film as an over-the-top comedy that should appeal to people of all ages, and should really connect with anyone who has ever been in a childhood snowball battle.

THE PACKERS GOT THE TROPHY AND NOW WE HAVE THE HAT!!

MARK JOHNSON ABSOLUTELY HATING THE MOMENT!

Longtime listener and occasional guest Mark Johnson of Marquette joined us today to pay up on a bet that was made between him and the show over the Super Bowl.  If the Packers won, he’d get us a Packer hat that he would wear for a photo to post here on the blog.  If the Steelers would have won, we would have had to reciprocate with a Steelers hat, and so on.  Well, we know how the game ended up and Mark stopped in with a Green Bay Packer Super Bowl Championship hat.  The hat has now been hung on the wall in the Sunny 101.9 WKQS studio with pride and it will remain there as a constant reminder of the football prowess and the teamwork that brought the Lombardi Trophy back to Green Bay!

Thanks, Mark and GO! PACK, GO!

THAT’S A WRAP!

Well, that caps off quite a crazy week and not a moment too soon!  See you soon here on the internetz real soon!
