This New Year’s Eve, we’re continuing a tradition that started 23 years ago and we’re hoping you’ll join us for what will be a historic event of sorts.
23 years ago we rang in the New Year on the air with you on WGN Radio from the Showcase Studio for the very first time. Well, this year will really be an historic event. Since the WGN studios are moving to a new location, this will be the last time Steve & Johnnie’s “Cheap Date Life After Dark New Year’s Eve Extravaganza” will welcome in a new year broadcasting from the Showcase studio location!! We’ll start at 11PM (ish) or whenever the Chicago Blackhawks game ends and go till 3AM.
Among our guests for this special New Year’s show will be one of the featured artists on the PBS Soundstage Special “Cornerstones Of Rock,” the man who sang lead on many of The New Colony Six’s hit records, Ronnie Rice.
And, because we had so much fun with him last year, making a return appearance is the world’s only Musical Mentalist, Sidney Friedman, who will have some predictions for the new year.
We’ll have hourly countdowns from different time zones.
Watch this space for more details as we know them and, of course, expect a surprise or two.
Remember, no cover charge and no dress code!!
We hope you’ll tune in to 720 AM or, if you’re not in the Chicago area, you can still listen and watch by clicking this link to WGN Radio’s live stream.
This is gonna be fun!
