Hope You’ll Join Us Memorial Day Morning!

Just a quick reminder that we’ll be hanging out in the WGN radio Showcase Studio from 9-Noon on Memorial Day.

We’ve got a lot of surprises planned but, we can tell you that, among our guests will be, legendary, Grammy winning, sax man, Ernie Watts and, Chicago’s own, Corky Siegel.

  5. Hi, Folks: Just got back from looking for Bald Eagles. It was really great to hear you on WGN again this past week. You both sounded very vibrant and upbeat. Glad you got in on some of our better weather days this month. I will definitely check out your podcast(s) to see what I missed. Sorry I couldn’t leave a Memorial Day Tribute during your live show, but I did post a rambling version on your FB page. I sure miss those wonderful folks at the 27th Surgical Hospital in Chu Lai, Vietnam. We had a very tight-knit group. My lab made spiked Kool aid, dyed red and green, for the patients on Christmas Day of 1968, we got permission to wheel it around in pipet jars on medical carts and dipped it out in mess hall drinking glasses… and I located the only case of Irish Whiskey in First Core and traded two cases of Vodka for it. On Christmas Eve, we invited everyone to the lab for Christmas Carols, cookies, and Irish Coffee. The mess hall Chief gave me some cans of condensed Creame, it wasn’t a bad substitute. The hospital chaplain was Irish, and brought his accordion, and we also sang teary farewells to our buddies who were shot down and killed over the Chu Lai runway – just as they began their rotation journey back to the states. As Ever, Love, Orin Keplinger in Boone County, IL.
