“While My Guitar Gently Weeps”

As we write this, today is Feb. 25, 2013.  If we were fortunate enough to still have him with us, today would have been George Harrison’s 70th birthday.  One of our favorite George Harrison songs is “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”

One of the best versions of that song and a very special moment for us was the night Doyle Dykes joined us at WGN and played a beautiful arrangement of that Harrison classic on his 12 string guitar.

We thought you might enjoy seeing and hearing it, so here is Doyle Dykes playing “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”

    Lovely rendition by Doyle Dykes. Thank you! Still searching for an all night radio station worth
    listening to, and coming up empty. Miss listening to you.

    I miss you!! I don’t listen to WGN at all any longer, what a disappointment!! Might you begin a podcast or radio show elsewhere? You would have a fabulous following as we can listen via the internet and we don’t need to be in Chicago any longer to listen.

    Thank you for all you’ve done! Carol
