Finally, it’s Friday on the WSGW Morning Team Show with Charlie and Dave and YOU…

TIGERS FANS!   The annual TigersFest is planned for January 27 at Comerica Park!   Tickets go on sale THIS MORNING!


This is the WSGW Food For Families update!   We ask you, our Loyal Family of Radio Listeners, to listen for updates (and posted here on the WSGW Morning Team page) on where you can go to make non-perishable food donations to help those in need.  All donations are collected by the Salvation Army for distribution.   In return for your donation, you receive a copy of the all-new Listen to the Mrs. Recipe Brochure.   Here is the Food for Families location for today, tomorrow, and Sunday:

Maple Hill Nursery, 2672 North Eastman Road, in Midland.   The Annual Christmas Open House is going on now through Sunday.   See a large selection of Pre-lit Christmas Trees from 2 to 12 feet,  along with wreaths, light sets, garland and ornaments.   You can walk through the big selection of toys from Melissa and Doug.   Find wind chimes, gazing globes, garden statuary, grills, patio furniture, and much more, when you make your Food For Families Donations at Maple Hill Nursery, today from 8am-7pm.

You can also find out more Food For Families information with WSGW online.

After the 7:30 news, the final SVSU report of the year as Charlie and Dave talk with the voice of Cardinals football, J.J. Boehm.   We’ve enjoyed these conversations every Friday after the 7:30 news, all season long (runs 9:33)


You heard the U.S. House passed a tax plan yesterday?   Here are some of the highlights and you can click the link for more…

For Individuals:

  • The current seven brackets would be compressed to four: 12%, 25%, 35% and 39.6%
  • The standard deduction for a married couple would increase from $12,700 this year to $24,400 next year.
  • The child tax credit would be increased from $1,000 to $1,600, and be available to couples earning up to $230,000, up from $110,000 now
  • Deductions for state income taxes, medical expenses, mortgage interest on second homes and other expenses such as disaster losses, tax-preparation fees and teachers’ costs for classroom supplies would be eliminated
  • Charitable contributions could still be deducted by those who itemize.
 Business changes:
  • The top corporate rate would drop from 35% to 20% next year
  • The United States would move to a system that only taxes the domestic income of companies based here, rather than their global income
  • Those who report business earnings on personal rather than corporate returns, such as sole proprietors  people in partnerships, would get a new 25% top rate for some of their income


Last week, we talked about the Baseball Hall of Fame, and how some of the Veterans Committees were revisiting players no longer eligible for the ballot that maybe deserved a “second chance”.   Alan Trammell is one of those players being considered.   Lou Whitaker is not, which is a travesty.

Charlie suggested Alan, if he gets in, should hold out and only go in with Lou.   Here is an update on that conversation as Alan Trammell has made comments, apparently listening to the WSGW Morning Team Show (runs 2:03)

Here is the link to the Detroit News story.


Happy Thanksgiving…  a few days early.   This story says the feast will be less expensive this year by 75 cents!   Every little bit helps!


Wake Up Song of the Day:   Debby Boone “You Light Up My Life“.   It’s the Friday Flashback Song!   We “Flash Back” in 10-20-30-40-50 year increments to find Number One Songs at this time that are still remembered today, along with the artists and groups that perform.   Or, Number One Songs that are long forgotten, along with the artists and groups that perform.   On this date, Debby was Number One for 10 weeks, 40 years ago in 1997.
