All-Night Radiothon Signs Off
It's naptime for SportsRadio 1250's Allen and Fifer.

Tim Allen and Steve “Sparky” Fifer will sleep well today.

The WSSP SportsRadio 1250 hosts just completed an all-night radio marathon, part of a charity drive to benefit the Max McGee National Research Center for Juvenile Diabetes.

Allen and Fifer went on the air at 10:32 p.m. Thursday. Fifer stuck around until 6 a.m., when he left to get in a nap before his regularly scheduled 2 p.m. “Big Show.” Allen didn’t sign off until 10 a.m., finishing the stretch alongside producer Joe Zenzola. Another producer, Dan Pfeifer, was with Allen and Fifer until 6 a.m.

As of 10 a.m., Allen and friends had raised $5,852 for their cause. Because they surpassed a radiothon goal of $5,000, Fifer must create a Twitter account, which he’s long resisted, and do some on-air singing during tonight's Milwaukee Brewers postgame show.

Perhaps a rendition of Aerosmith's "Dream On"?
