What Is Early Word? The Philadelphia Inquirer's experimental online "morning show", which began in Sept. 2005, went on hiatus in the summer of 2006, after a gradual shift to putting more of its content directly on Philly.com.
About the Host Peter Mucha, husband and father of two, grew up in Cherry Hill and is a lifelong Philly sports fan. He's been writing and editing for The Inquirer for 18 years.
His motto (at least for today): "If I'm not brief, give me grief."

Who'd Buy THAT house?!
THAT house is the one in Lancaster County where six people where found slain this week. Looks nice, but could you live there? Good question, asked this morning on 'MMR's Preston & Steve show. The knowledge alone could creep you out forever, and then there's the fear of ghosts. One caller said two women died in his house. One of them even died in his bed! "You're that good!" quipped one of the hosts (gotta learn which guy's Preston, which one's Steve). Then a woman called, saying her mom was a real estate agent, and you wouldn't want to know some of the stories. Like the woman who died and wasn't found for three weeks, and so her body "melted" into the floor and was actually dripping into the living room! After someone screamed, a host cracked, "It's Raining Blanche!" and before you know it, "It's Raining Men" was playing with the studio bunch singing "Blanche" instead of "Men."
