Mornings on KFOG : Comedian Greg FitzsimmonsVIDEOComedian Greg Fitzsimmons rolled through Mornings on KFOG to chat with Alicia and I about our exploits from the night before, and how Greg used to practice jokes as a kid on the Mayor of New York Ed Koch. Greg also spills his coffee halfway through the interview, but it’s OK, he kept us laughing so much we still love him! Check him out at the San Francisco Punchline all weekend.
After missing a week of the podcast, I’m baaaaaack with three off-the-radar song picks for your to check out! First selection comes from Oakland’s own Arieh Berl AKA Pink Skies. If you’re in the mood for some seriously chilled out and sunny vibes, Pink Skies latest singe (a 6lack cover) “Gettin’ Old” is for you! Pink Skies is a total throwback, oozing 70’s nostalgia and dreamy pop sensibility. The production on this track is top-notch, and the vocals Berl pairs with it fits effortlessly.
Alicia and Arthur Talk to Comedian Michael Ian BlackVIDEOAuthor, comedian, and Star of VH1’s “I Love the…” series, Michael Ian Black stopped by Mornings on KFOG to chat with Alicia and I before his weekend and Cobb’s Comedy Club. Michael talked about his new book “A Children’s First Book of Trump”, his lover of poker, and his past career as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. Dude is hilarious, and this a podcast you definitely don’t want to miss.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
