The Mac Fund March-Macness


On Thursday, March 31st, friends and fans gathered in support of Clare and Steve Morrison‘s charity The Mac Fund (at the Cat Shack), at Bank & Bourbon to celebrate “March Mac-ness.” Steve Morrison of WMMR and his wife rescue and foster cats and have done so for nearly 20 years. Their cat “Mac” was their first rescue and after losing him three years ago, they wanted to do something special in his memory.

The Mac Fund is used exclusively to assist in the spaying/neutering of feral cat colonies in an effort to reduce the cat overpopulation problem in Philadelphia and its surrounding areas. The Cat Shack, which helps the Mac Fund in its efforts, is a non-profit organization designed to help find homes for cats in need and aid in the fight to end pet overpopulation. During the event, sponsor Pet Plan (a pet insurance company) donated $700 to the Mac Fund.

Preston Elliot From Preston & Steve Loves to Sing Journey’s ‘Stone In Love’

My name is … Preston Elliot. There’s an uncle somewhere in the family tree named Preston.

I am … an avid golfer. My handicap is a 12.

One thing about Philadelphia that drives me crazy … is the traffic. It just fucking sucks.

My secret talent is … juggling. I do it whenever I see three objects that need to be thrown into the air.

This year for Christmas, please don’t buy me … booze. I quit drinking. I’ve been having a bad run with migraines, and the booze just made it worse. Did you ever have a migraine and a hangover at the same time? It’s awful.

The best video game ever is … Zelda.

My wife is always telling me … to shut the fuck up. No. I’m kidding. She’s actually always telling me to leave her alone when she’s cooking. I like to move in and take over when I see her doing something incorrect. I mean, she puts the burner on high no matter what she’s cooking. It’s ridiculous.

One song I love to sing at the top of my lungs is … “Stone In Love” by Journey. That’s so embarrassing, but it’s true. I can’t even begin to hit the notes, but I still sing it. Loudly.

I probably shouldn’t tell you this about Steve … but when he is on the phone with his wife, he baby-talks a lot. It’s really weird.

My favorite material possession … is a book from my childhood called The Golden Treasury of Caroline and Her Friends. I recently had it restored for $500. It’s been a favorite of mine since I was a baby. It’s definitely an heirloom and will be passed down.

If you really want to piss me off … start preaching politics. I don’t care.

I am deathly afraid of … dying. It’s something that crosses my mind maybe once a day.

When I was 16 … I was even more of an idiot than I am now.

The most famous person I ever met … was Paul McCartney. Met him in 1993 on the New World Tour. I thought I was just going to be getting a quick picture, but without my knowledge, I was scheduled to interview him. They said, “It’s time to interview Paul.” And I said, “What?” He knew I was nervous and not ready, and he made me very comfortable. The most gracious man I have ever come across.

If I wasn’t doing this … I’d be living off my wife somehow, because I can’t do anything else.

One game you will never beat me at is … foosball.

I got my first tattoo … at 24 years old. It’s an eighth note on my left shoulder. I got it just to see what it was like to get a tattoo.

When I want a cheesesteak, I go to … Jim’s on South Street. It’s not as gristly as some of the other places. But you stink like a cheesesteak for the rest of the day when you come out of there.

My DVR is always set to record … Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I’ve always been a fan of Marvel.

When I want to relax … I jump in my hot tub and chill out for a while. It’s open year-round, and when it snows, it’s a requirement that the entire family get into the hot tub.

My kids are always telling me … to leave the room before I fart.

Tom Selleck Finds Out About Iron Hill Brew Named After Mustache

Yesterday morning Preston & Steve of 93.3 WMMR had the opportunity to interview Tom Selleck of Magnum, P.I. fame about his upcoming TV movie. During the interview Preston & Steve, both big fans of award winning Iron Hill Brewery, had the chance to inform Selleck about the beer made by the North Wales Iron Hill named “Tom Selleck’s Mustache.”

The beer is a Black Cherry Stout created in 2009 by Vince Desrosiers, head brewer at the North Wales location. Selleck seemed pleased by the news and good-naturedly replied to description with “There is no cherry flavor in my mustache.”

Vince Desrosiers had his own response to this news, saying “Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that Tom Selleck would be talking about a beer we named after his mustache. So awesome.”

If Selleck wants to drink the beer inspired by his very own mustache Iron Hill may have a celebrity sighting in its future.
