Join Us Thanksgiving Morning on WGN Radio!

If you’re going to be up early cooking, anyway, as you’re basting your turkey, once again, 2 of your other friendly, local, turkeys will be gobbling up the airwaves this Thanksgiving day on WGN.

We’ll be on from 5-9 AM.

We’ve got a few surprises planned.  But, don’t be surprised if an old friend or two show up.  For example, our resident Cybersquad Chief, Patrick Crispen, will stop by with some hot holiday tech gift ideas.

Among the other Thanksgiving treats we’re bringing along will be in-studio performances from world renowned guitarists,  Joel Paterson and Muriel Anderson.

Joel will be premiering his new Christmas CD “Hi-Fi Christmas Guitar.”

Muriel will premier her new CD, “ECLIPSE.”

It’s nice to be home for the holidays.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Our Halloween Special Podcast Is Now Available!

Halloween has always been one of our very favorite holidays.  For many years we looked forward to our visits with Chicago’s Ghost Hunter, the late, Richard Crowe, and sharing scary stories with you on WGN.

This past Tuesday night, we may have celebrated Halloween in a new venue but, along with some new friends and stories, we brought along a familiar guest and a story or two that have become part of our Halloween tradition.

This year, joined by our friends Tom Hoots and Producer Brandon, we dropped into Studio A at WKGC-FM, in Panama City, Florida.  Our multiple Emmy winning friend Svengoolie (a/k/a Rich Koz) was nice enough to stop by as was local Paranormal Investigator, Paul Bonnette.  This Halloween special was also simulcast on WNBI-LP, in New Buffalo, Michigan.

We had an absolute blast!

If you missed the live broadcast or need just a bit more of a Halloween fix until next year, you can listen to the podcast just by clicking on this link.

For Those Of You Who Have Been Asking, Our Halloween Poem Has Returned!

Once again crawling out from the depths of Halloween’s past, it’s the return of our Halloween Poem.  It’s a fun “trick” to add to your bag of treats for your little people.

For the uninitiated, this is a poem which, in one form or another, we’ve been presenting on radio and the Internet for several decades.  Honestly, we don’t know the origin of the poem. A listener sent it to Steve many years ago in a galaxy far, far away in the days before him n her became HimNHer.  The positive response to the poem and the fun it can provide, particularly for kids, at a Halloween party resulted in it becoming one of our annual traditions.  And, as Steve’s Dad always said, “Tradition is a fine thing as long as it doesn’t become a habit.”

But, we digress …

OK, here is how it works.  If you’re having some young children over for Halloween, just get them in a dark room and read them this story of a young man who went to school to learn to be a first-class ghoul.  As you’re reading the story, in the dim light, you pass out items that are supposed to be body parts.  Johnnie has put together a list of things you can use to simulate the body parts.

Even in this high-tech world, each year we hear from a lot of people telling stories of the fun they had with the kids and this old school Halloween poem.  Hopefully, you’ll be one of them.
