Ron Paul 2012 - Preston & Steve's "Cardboard Classic" WMMR

If you've never heard of Preston & Steve, you're either not from Philly, or don't own a radio. Either way you're missing out. There really is an entire culture built around their morning radio show. Aside from just being a morning radio show, they always seem to outdo themselves when it comes to what they offer their fans. Events like, Camp Out for Hunger, Drunk Day, The Vag Project, Painfully Single Mixers, Philly's Hottest..., and the "I Bleed for Preston & Steve" Blood Drive will keep them on the local map forever.

Another event that displays human ingenuity at its finest, is the "Cardboard Classic." Imagine you're a kid going sledding and all you have is cardboard, some duct tape you found in your garage, and a few magic markers. In your mind you'd build the coolest cardboard spaceship an 8 year old can build. Well imagine you have the same drive, only this time, you have better resources, and you're 40. Well Preston & Steve have provided the tristate area with an outlet for you and your dreams, and that outlet is known as the "Cardboard Classic."

For the second year in a row, local grassroots Ron Paul supporters / Preston & Steve Fans decided to participate in an attempt to get the Dr. some love, support, and some air time. For the second year in a row, the crowd welcomed them with open arms. I can honestly say, as a participant, every entry was the best entry. Whether it was a 30 foot Rocky statue built on a scaled down exact replica of the Philadelphia Art Museum, a Tiki Bar with 5 working kegs and a flat screen TV, the Wally World bound Griswold station wagon, Lone Star's ship from Spaceballs, or a hard to make out train (which was labeled "it's a train"), everyone did an incredible job.

Set aside 5 minutes and check out some of our footage from the day. Plans for next year are already in the works, I highly recommend making something and entering next year, join us and enjoy!
