WOW! Who knew 5 hours could go so fast?
It took just a few minutes and then we just relaxed and it felt like we were just talking to and hanging out with old friends.
Because, we were.
We have to say a HUGE thank you to our producer, Brian Jones, for going above and beyond to help us get reacquainted with the studio and keeping us from veering too far off course.
Also, thank you to Patrick Crispen for waking up at 5 AM, California time, to join us with some great computer tips.
And, thanks to Dean Richards for getting up early to join us on a day he didn’t have to.
Tommy Emmanuel (“Tigger”) bounced his way through an interview with us and let us give out some tickets to his upcoming concert, Sept. 20, at Dominican University’s Lund Auditorium, in River Forest. We’ll be introducing Tommy that night and hope to see you there.
We reconnected with some old friends, met some new ones and reaffirmed the value of fresh coffee and Johnnie’s homemade coffee cake while watching the city come alive from the WGN Showcase Studio.
Steve had fun!
