Brewers Plate 2012-111

By: Roundhouse Ron
Photo_3(1)On Friday December 14, 2012, like the rest of the Philadelphia area, I was totally shocked & stunned that wired 96.5 (WRDM) had fired “CHIO”, for reasons that no one knows. Since early 1995, he has made this city his home, from starting with Q102.1 (WIOQ) to this present day. Being the honest man that he is, “CHIO” wanted his faithful listeners to understand and make one thing perfectly clear, “I Did Not Resign, I Straight Up, Got Fired”.
Since hearing this information, I decided it was about time I had written a story on this very good friend of mine. Way back, when “CHIO” first arrived in Philly, I was introduced to him by a mutual friend of the both of ours, another local radio icon by the name of “Glenn Kalina”. Glenn and his wife “Stavros”, were both friends of mine, therefore they asked me to show this Philly newbie (“CHIO”) around our fine town for little, cause he liked the “ROCKY” movies and I am a true Philadelphian. During these past seventeen (17) years, we have always kept in touch and been seen around at many local venues together as he would take over these spots. In fact, “CHIO” gave me my start in the promotional field, by me listening and learning how crazy this world of entertainment works. I then ventured out on my own as “Roundhouse Ron” & “Philly Music Video Promotions” in 2000.
This Philadelphia radio legend first air checked in on February of 1995, with then Q102.1 (WIOQ) a Clear Channel station in the 6pm to 10pm time slot. Back then, Q102 had an entirely different vibe with such slogans as “Peace On The Streets” & “The Switch Is On”. Their main competition for many years was Y100 (WXPN). “CHIO” took over the night time airwaves as his program was climbing to the rating charts. In January of 1997, Clear Channel had a brain storm to revamp the station, so with that, “CHIO” moved on with his career.
Phoenix, Arizona was the next location for my boy, in January of 1997, “CHIO” took a nice job at 103.9 (KPTY), “Arizona’s Party Station”. Riding the hot frequency waves of Arizona, he stayed until August of 1997, where at this time, he was known as “CHIO The Hit Man”.
As “CHIO’s” career was gaining more popularity by da moment, he fell into an awesome gig in sunny San Diego, CA, and started there in August of 1997 with Q106.5 (KKLQ). He held down his night shift with sum great ratings, so what happens, he gets a phone call from Q102.1 back here in Philly with an offer “CHIO” could not refuse. The family loaded up the moving van once again in August of 1999.
Taking over the Philadelphia airwaves once again, “CHIO” was received with a huge warm welcome back. He found a nice spot on Q102.1 with the afternoon drive shift (2pm to 6pm). From August of 1999 to December of 1999, “CHIO” made the drive home from work, both very entertaining and informational.
In January of 2000, an exciting career booster was proposed to “CHIO” from WIQO (Q102.1) with taking over the morning show. There was no way he was letting this amazing opportunity go, so he was signed on as the morning showPhoto_4(1) host, with another local radio legend being the co-host. Yes, you got it, “CHIO” was now teamed up with “Diego Ramos” (local boy born & raised). “CHIO” would host the program (6am to 10am), while “Diego” would be the stunt man, producer & all around whatever needed to be done, he did it for the show kinda guy. Not only was a legendary show now being developed, but also was a new name for “CHIO”, that he will carry on for the next 13 years. All I gotta say is “CHIO” In The Morning and the world knew who I was talking about.
In January of 2006, “CHIO” got an interesting offer from a radio station (Z90) in San Diego, CA. He decide to take a journey across this country via automobile, just to get away for a while cause he felt he needed a change in his life. “CHIO” signed on and worked just 1 day on air, then in conversations with his wife “Shawn”, he decided to leave this job and return back home in New Jersey. Now remember, he had no job or job offer in this area. But “CHIO” made the call to leave, quit his job in San Diego and return to his humble home in Cherry Hill to save his marriage with “Shawn”.
While driving back to Philadelphia, “CHIO” received a phone call on his cell, from another Philly radio station. Yeppers, wired 96.5 (WRDW) heard that he was returning to Philly and they wanted to start a new morning program just for him. Because of him still being in contract with Q102.1, “CHIO” had to wait til March of 2006, only then could he return to the frequency in this area.
So, as the story goes, “CHIO” worked for wired 96.5 from March of 2006 til his finally good bye on December 14, 2012 at approximately 9:45am. It was a great run for over 6½ years as he was killin the Philadelphia radio market with good ratings and a very entertaining local show.
During the history of this awesome morning program, “CHIO” worked with many interesting and very popular co-hosts like “Diego”, “Angi Taylor”, “Blaire”, “Jill”, “Justice”, “Lisa Paige”, “Roula Christie”, “David ”Secrest” Krieger”, “Casey”, “Joey B”, “G-N Kang”, “Ryan Motts”, “White Trash Matt”, “Shila” and most recently “Tingle”.
“CHIO” is also responsible for sum outstanding events and charity work in our area, like who remembers “Singles Mingle”, with the 1st one being at “Envy Nightclub” in Philly? How about the very emotional “Chio’s Christmas Wish List”, giving away over $126,000 while helping over 126 families, making Christmas just a little bit brighter in tough times. Things like this, no one can take away from him, “CHIO” honestly luvs to give back to the community that he serves, while trying to make a difference in any way he can.
As being one of “CHIO’s” good friends here in da Philadelphia area, we have hit many local night spots as he was doing numerous personal appearances. Actually, I must accredit my reputation & vast knowledge in the promotional field to my boy “CHIO”, he showed me how important is it to be genuine to people when they come out supporting you & your events.
If you have ever meet “CHIO” in person, you know this all to be very true, he respects each person as a loyal friend & this is why he does what he loves to do. I can’t go any further without mentioning all of the clubs you may have seen “CHIO” at, sum in fact may jar your brain with awesome memories, like “Club 1415”, “The Shark Club”, “Maui Nightclub”, “Egypt Nightclub”, “The Warehouse”, “The Cave”, “Adelphi Nightclub”, “The 8th Floor”, “Baja Beach Club”, “Soncini’s Sports Bar”, “Touche Nightclub”, “Iguana Yacht Club”, “Bronco Billy’s”, “Pulse Nightclub”, “Blue Martini”, “The Roxxy”, “The Bamboo Bar”, “Chrome Nightclub”, “The Woodbine”, “The Big Kahuna”, “Ice Nightclub”, “Top Dog”, “Envy Nightclub”, “Flatspin Nightclub”, “Club Manhattan”, “Reed’s Nightclub”, “Diego’s Bar”, “The Deck”, “RP Murphy’s”, “Bootleggers”, “Club 27”, “Cebu”, “Escape Nightclub”, “The Lagoon”, “Club Deco”.
And he is still going even stronger today with the “CHIO” “Radio Frequency Tour”, hitting places like “Penguin’s Pub”, “MoodSwing Nightclub”, “Kellen’s Station House”, “The Trappe Tavern”, “Phily Sports Bar” & “The Foundation Room” (Showboat Casino in Atlantic City).
If you wanna keep in touch with “CHIO”, please go to one of his personal facebook accounts, www.facebook.com/ChioFanPage or www.facebook.com/ChioInTheMorning. He also has a personal twitter account, www.twitter.com/ChioNation.

Since “Hot Wings” is one of my all time favorite proteins, I just had to write about these delectable treats. I like to call them “Hot Wings”, but they have also been known as “Buffalo Wings”, Chicken Wings, “Hot Wings” or “Wing Dings”. Some people enjoy them as an appetizer, while others luv to chow down & get right to the point as a main entrée. These tasty morsels are best when accompanied by fresh celery sticks, along with a dipping sauce of either blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing.
As history goes, on a cold Friday night in 1964, “Dominic Bellissimo” was tending bar at the now famous “Anchor Bar & Restaurant” in Buffalo, New York. Late that evening, a group of “Dominic’s” friends arrived at the bar with ravenous appetites. “Dominic” asked his mother, “Teressa”, to prepare something for his friends to eat. “Chicken Wings” in those dayz, usually went right into the stock pot for soup. So, “Teressa” had deep fried sum wings & flavored them with a secret cayenne hot sauce. The wings were an instant hit and it didn’t take long for people to flock to the bar to experience this new taste sensation. From that evening on, “Buffalo Wings” became a regular part of the menu at the “Anchor Bar & Restaurant”.
Photo_1
If you ever thought that a “Buffalo Wing” came from parts of a buffalo, you were completely wrong & probably been living under a freakin rock, cause everyone who lives in Philly, knows that “Buffalo Wings” come from chickens, actually from the 1st (wing drumette) & 2nd section (flat wing tip) of the wing.
These miniature culinary masterpieces can be prepared & served in several different ways. Always best when made fresh, please don’t ever buy those grocery store frozen bags of “Chicken Wings”. To be honest, they focking suck & are so damn gross. Get the real deal or don’t eat them at all. Clean your pieces, then lightly dip them in either seasoned flour or seasoned bread crumbs. Deep fry these puppies until golden brown or to your liking. Now, is where we all get lost, in the final flavor treatment of the wings, there is over 5 trillion different ways to finish them off. I prefer my own secret mixture of a “Frank’s Red Hot Sauce” base, chopped cilantro, minced garlic, splash of lime juice, with a few dashes of cayenne pepper. Mix it up, then add the wings for a few seconds of shaking & enjoy ;-}
Photo_2
As many of you already know, I review & post a Top 10 List Of Philly’s Best “Hot Wing” Spots, in my opinion. I could not continue this article without mentioning a few local locations. If you are ever in da need for sum amazing “Chicken Wing” greed, please check out either “Reale’s Sports Bar & Grille”, “Curran’s Irish Inn”, “Byrne’s Tavern”, “Paddy Whacks Irish Sports Pub”, “Moriarty’s Irish Pub” or “McCrossen’s Tavern”. Since visiting all of these food eateries, tasting their fine wingers, I seriously recommend them all. Other awesome local chain restaurants that have fabulous wings are “Hooters”, “Chickie’s & Pete’s”, “Tilted Kilt Pub” & “Buffalo Wild Wings”.
“Buffalo Wings” & football, need I say anything more? These gotta be 2 of my favorite things in life, so I have to mention how popular they are during our big American show down. Super Bowl weekend is unquestionably the biggest time of the year for wings.  More than 1.25 billion wing portions will be consumed during Super Bowl weekend, totaling more than 100 million pounds of wings, according to the National Chicken Council’s (NCC) Wing Report. Some 23% of those who watch the big game have eaten “Chicken Wings”, up slightly in popularity from last year & second only to dips & spreads (32%) on Super Bowl menus.
Photo_3
Leading up to our local “Hot Wing” heritage, I can’t go any further without mentioning WIP’s (94.1fm/610am radio) world famous “Wing Bowl”. The “Wing Bowl” is in part a sporting event, part 3 ring circus & all entertainment. This annual “Chicken Wing” eating contest founded in 1993 by radio talk show host “Al Morganti” & in time “Angelo Cataldi” joined in on this celebration of pure gluttony. “Wing Bowl 1” started in 1993, with about 10 people who attended The Wyndham Franklin Plaza Hotel lobby in center city Philadelphia. This wacky competition started with just 2 contestants, as “Carmen “The Beast from the East” Cordero” walked away with the inaugural title of eating 100 wings while receiving a hibachi grill as his prize. The Wing Bowl is traditionally held on the Friday preceding the Super Bowl. This year’s big winner was “James “The Bear” McDonald” (from Granby, Connecticut) who rose to victory after devouring a ridiculous 287 “Chicken Wings”.
“P.J. Whelihan’s” in Haddonfield, NJ is responsible for supplying all the “Chicken Wings” for WIP’s “Wing Bowl” this year. They fry up to about 540 pounds of wings, which falls into around 12,000 wings for this single event.
A huge part of this annual event has been the “Wingettes”. OMFG, just imagine over 120 scantily clad women dressed in bikini tops with boy shorts & high heeled shoes, all biding for the title of “Miss Wingette”. Actually they are a vital asset to the contestants, as the “Wingettes” support their wing eating gladiator onto victory or defeat. The top “Wingette” of “Wing Bowl 21” (this year) rode off on a brand new Harley Davidson 883 Sportster from Barb’s Harley Davidson. I know you are all chomping at da bit wondering, who was this year’s top “Wingette”? This year’s winner was a very attractive 20 year old brunette named Alexandra Warner from Easton, PA.
With such a worldwide attraction, the “Wing Bowl” attracts numerous commercial & local sponsors. Not only do these sponsors promote the eating competitors, but they also help supply the event with the “Wingettes”. Big time promoters & local companies like “Promo Frank”, “The Penthouse Club”, “Xfinity Live”, “PBR Bar & Grill”, “Chickie’s & Pete’s” & the “Victory Beer Hall” (just to name a few) have a stable of fine young ladies that are more than willing to be a part of this colossal 20,000 people venue.
And, this is how “Roundhouse Ron” goes from “Hot Wings” to “Wing Bowl” & “Wingettes”. “Enjoy Life My Friendz, With No Regrets, Cause Tomorrow Is Not Guaranteed”. You can always reach me @ www.facebook.com/RoundhouseRon

WOMEN HELPING WOMEN THROUGH THE ARTS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Women to Women (W2W) will host their first concert event on Saturday, November 10 at the Indian Chief Tavern in Medford NJ and will feature 12 local female singers raising money for breast cancer research.

W2W is a unique new charitable organization rising out of the local Delaware Valley music community that will be organizing live music events featuring women from all walks of life taking to the stage and singing songs of solidarity to raise consciousness and funds to aid women in need.

Founder Jeanne Mannix Evans explains the inspiration for the project was an attempt to empower women to come out from behind the curtain and take their rightful place in the spotlight. Recognizing that so many women spend their lives nurturing and supporting others, Evans saw this as a way for women to nurture their own inner creative spirit as part of the process.

The net proceeds from W2W on November 10 will benefit Breast Cancer Research for the American Cancer Society www.cancer.org, in honor of a friend who is currently fighting the battle and for a sister in law Gina Evans, who recently lost her battle. Future events will continue to focus on raising awareness and funds for local women’s organizations that support women in crisis.

W2W will feature 12 local female artists including rocker Sandy Hall, from Kick it Out, Chris Hartline from ‘Sordid Past’, Susan Lake from the Rockets, and Gospel/jazz favorite Keli Vale. Also performing on November 10 will be a host of other women that Evans handpicked to highlight their unsung talent such as Robin Parry of World Café Live and Rachel Evans who will sing in homage to her mother Gina.

Acting as music coordinator and bandleader for the events will be Jeanne’s husband Mark Evans, former lead singer of Columbia recording artists Heaven’s Edge who has put together a prominent group of local musicians to back up the lineup of women performers.

Judging from the rehearsals, this event is going to seriously rock! The musicians are thrilled about the project and awed at the level of talent they are backing up. On a break from a recent rehearsal, drummer Joe Mannix talked about this project branching out even further. “Now that we know these songs and heard these women sing we are hoping they will come to our shows and hop up on stage!” says Mannix, referring to his band Out Loud.

The women are equally excited to be part of such a creative way to help further education and research in the fight against breast cancer. They will be singing their hearts out November 10 for their friends, sisters, mothers, and women everywhere.

W2W has already inspired a whole music community with love, admiration, and charity and cannot wait to share it all on November 10 at the Indian Chief!

For more information about the performers and the event visit W2W on facebook or contact Jeanne Mannix Evans at jeanne.evans@hotmail.com

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ – October 19, 2012– Trump Taj Mahal presents Lisa Marie Presley in the Xanadu Theater on Saturday, November 10, 2012.  Show time is at 8pm.  Ticket prices are $24 and $19. Tickets can be obtained by either calling Ticketmaster at 1-800-736-1420, on line at www.ticketmaster.com.

With all the hoopla that has surrounded her, it’s easy to forget that Lisa Marie Presley is at heart a simple Southern girl whose earliest musical memories are of obsessively listening to 45’s in her bedroom at Graceland and of her dad catching her singing into a hairbrush in front of a mirror at the age of three.
The Memphis-born Presley reclaims those roots on her new album Storm & Grace — an Americana-inspired showcase for her songwriting talent and smoldering alto voice. Produced with elegant restraint by 12-time Grammy Award-winner T Bone Burnett, Storm & Grace is a marked departure from Presley’s previous albums, 2003’s gold-certified To Whom It May Concern and 2005’s Now What, which both debuted in the Top 10 on Billboard‘s Top 200 chart.
The album’s rootsy golden tone is set immediately with the opening track “Over Me,” with its echoey guitar line, burping bassline, shuffling backbeat, and lyrics that lament a lover who’s replaced her, while the ominous, swampy lead single “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet” and the pedal-steel and mandolin-driven title track sound like they could have been recorded during an impromptu back-porch jam session.
Not wanting to abandon her craft, and after gentle prodding from her new manager Simon Fuller, Presley agreed, in the summer of 2009, to sit down with some new songwriting collaborators, who included three Brits: Sacha Skarbek (who’s written with Adele and Jason Mraz among others), and singer-songwriters Ed Harcourt and Richard Hawley, who is also a member of Pulp. Over an eight-month period, Presley wrote 28 songs including “Storm and Grace” and “How Do You Fly This Plane?” with Hawley; “Un-Break” and “Close To The Edge” with Skarbek; and “Soften The Blows” and “Over Me” with Harcourt.
Taken as a whole, Storm & Grace is an unflinchingly honest piece of work from this songwriter, who, though known for her tough frankness, has managed to create a tender, consoling thread that runs throughout the album. “Weary” may concern a relationship that didn’t work out, but it is suffused with genuine warmth, as Presley sings: “I will always love you/you can move on, dear.”  For Presley, the album’s conciliatory theme grew out of wanting to have peace in her life after a period of turmoil and letting go of what no longer suited her.
Impressed with Presley’s songs, Fuller sent the demos to producer and musician T Bone Burnett, who is known for his work with such artists as Allison Krauss and Robert Plant, B.B. King, Willie Nelson, Elton John and Leon Russell, and scores of others.

East Coast Debut at Wells Fargo Center Complex
Saturday, October 27th
header
Registration for The Walking Dead Escape is available now!
(PHILADELPHIA) October 3, 2012 – The zombie virus continues to spread as Ruckus Sports and Skybound, in conjunction with Live Nation, announce Philadelphia as the next city to fall in the gruesomely realistic The Walking Dead Escape obstacle course series. Taking place on Saturday, October 27 at the Wells Fargo Center Complex, the apocalyptic event comes just in time for the Halloween season. There are three ways to take part in this epic adventure: participants can choose to be a Survivor and race through the zombie infested evacuation zone, a Walker who embraces the inevitable and surrenders to the undead horde, or a Spectator who watches the apocalypse from sidelines at the Escape Party.
Tickets for this event are available now through TheWalkingDeadEscape.com and Livenation.com.
On the heels of a wildly successful event in San Diego this Summer, The Walking Dead Escape: Philadelphia is unlike any obstacle course event in the nation. Expanding on the best-selling The Walking Dead comic book series and graphic novel storylines, the Escape allows Survivors and Walkers to explore the initial days of the apocalypse.
“Thousands of Walking Dead fans participated in San Diego and we promised that it wasn’t going to stop there,” said Liam Brenner, founder Ruckus Sports. “Now the people of Philadelphia are going to have their chance participate as we transform the Wells Fargo Center Complex into the early days of society’s collapse.”
Survivors will climb, crawl and slide in an effort to avoid confrontation by hordes of Walkers while achieving the ultimate adventure on The Walking Dead-themed obstacle course. The Walking Dead Escape is not a race and Survivors are not timed, but the end is near and they must move swiftly. If they’re lucky, Survivors will reach the decontamination zone where their level of infection – if any – will be determined by a confidential military scan. Walkers will be transformed into the undead by professional makeup teams and released on the course to haunt the living. New for the Philadelphia Escape is the “Survivor Showdown” where five-person teams will compete on a separate, walker infested course for $2,500 in prizes.
The choice is yours. Whether you run, walk, or watch, Walking Dead fans will have a front row seat to the real-life action event of a lifetime.
Early registration is strongly recommended, as walk-ups may not be available on event day.
For more information or to register for the event, please visit www.thewalkingdeadescape.com.

Government Zombie Cover-Up Exposed!

Feasterville, PA – As recently reported in many local media outlets, the government-operated Zombie Research Center, located at the Valley of Fear in Feasterville, Bucks County, PA, tragically burned down this past summer.

Based on information recently revealed by unnamed sources within the U.S. government, it is now known that dozens of actual zombies in various stages of development escaped during the fire and are roaming freely in the area, threatening the very lives of visitors to the Valley of Fear. Discovery of this cover-up leads many to recall the mysterious cover-up in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.

“I had no idea what I was getting myself into,” says one shaken visitor to the exhibit. “I barely escaped with my life!”

Local authorities have thus far been unable to contain the escapees, who are still at large in the wilds of the Phoenix Sports Club in Feasterville, PA. They hope to have the situation under control some time in November.

Valley of Fear Opens Sept. 28th and Runs Through Nov. 3rd

The Valley of Fear Rises From the Ashes for 2012!

The Valley Of Fear is the area’s longest running seasonal Halloween themed event, now in its 23rd season. Over the summer, a fire damaged some of the facilities on the property at Phoenix Sports Club; in fact, the devastating fire was featured on Channel 6 ABC news. But the Valley of Fear has literally “risen from the ashes” to come back better than ever this haunting season! It features favorites such as the Original Haunted Hayride and Scary Tales – your favorite fairy tales with a terrifying twist. The Valley of Fear Hayride was named the 2011 Hayride of the Year by the independent critics at FrightTour.com.

“Although we had a disaster with the fire this year, we have managed to turn it around and make the attraction even better than ever,” says Tom Yaegel, who operates the Haunted Hayride every year.

“Thanks to our imaginative cast and creators, we’ve made the fire a part of the story of our haunted attraction—due to the fire, zombies have escaped and are roaming the Valley of Fear. It’s very satisfying to turn this tragedy into a fun part of the 23-year lore of the Haunted Hayride.”

What’s new this year?

• The Zombie Research Center Zombie Excape Maze—Extreme terror, extreme fear, extreme zombies! Try to survive as you are chased by the zombie escapees through a 5,000 square foot maze. They’ve escaped and they are coming for YOU!
