    Deadliest Catch - D&D Radio

    in Hobbies

    We're hitting the seas today on The Down and Dirty with Frank Fontana!
    Up first is Captain "Wild" Bill Wichrowski, one of the stars of Deadliest Catch on the Discovery Channel. Our own crew is really excited to have Bill call in -- he'll share some stories from his life, as well as from his wildly popular reality series.
    During our Craftsmanship segment, we're calling up U-Turn Audio co-founder Ben Carter. He and his partners just pulled off a successful Kickstarter campaign to bring their affordable yet high-quality Orbit turntable to the market.
    We're also welcoming back to the studio HollywoodChicago.com writer Brian Tallerico to talk about the legacy of Roger Ebert, upcoming summer movies, and the Chicago Critics Film Festival... and we'll also hear a DIY Disaster story from stylist and entrepreneur Cindy Lin.
    Check us out and get Down and Dirty!

    Delightfully DiMera Welcomes Captain Wild Bill Wichrowski!

    in Entertainment

    Captain Wild Bill Wichrowski’s motto is "hard work and honesty" though he has been known to use unconventional methods - that partly explain the nickname "Wild" - to keep his crew going strong.   While he has a potentially intimidating reputation, Bill can back up his words with the skills to get the job done. He has extensive experience as a naval engineer, boat electrician, and commercial fisherman. He is keenly aware of the risk inherent in his profession one widely recognized as the world’s most dangerous job.   After graduating from Norwin High School in 1975 Bill joined the Navy and moved to the West Coast. When his military service ended four years later the big money earned by Alaska’s king-crab fisherman lured him to the Bering Sea. There, he spent the next 20 years, ultimately working his way up the ladder to captain. In 2005 he semi-retired to run sports-fishing tours out of Costa Rica and Mexico.   Discovery Channel producers first approached Bill to join Deadliest Catch early in the show's run, but he declined. When interest in high-end fishing expeditions began to slow due to the economy, he decided to take Discovery up on their offer and return to crab fishing.   In 2010 - he broke into the tight-knit circle of Deadliest Catch captains. Two years later Bill brought his son Zack Larson on board his ship as greenhorn.   Bill is originally from Irwin, Pa. In the off-season he and his wife Karen Gillis make their home in San Carlos, Mexico. Bill enjoys travel, horseback riding, NASCAR, and sports fishing. He supports nonprofit projects including Wounded Warriors and breast cancer charities. In addition to Zack, Bill has a younger son Jake and a daughter Delia.
