We’re “Home” for Thanksgiving on WGN!

After spending the past month on Florida’s Panhandle, we arrived back in Chicago on Tuesday just in time to take the turkeys out of the freezer for our Thanksgiving Day show and while we were at WGN radio preparing our birds, we got to catch up with Patti Vasquez.  That’s always a good thing.

For those of you who, for whatever reason, don’t feel the need to follow our every move, we should clarify that, once again, we’ll be playing the part of your friendly, local Thanksgiving turkeys as we jump back inside your radio speakers to gobble up the airwaves from Noon-3PM this Thanksgiving Day on WGN.

Here’s just some of the Thanksgiving Day treats we’re bringing along:

We’ll take a look at some of the best new tech stuff for your Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Christmas gift shopping as we get suggestions from our former Website Wednesday Night Cybersquad chief, Patrick Crispen.  Patrick is now the Director of Educational Technology and Assistant Professor of Clinical Medical Education, Keck School of Medicine of USC.

For many years, one of our Thanksgiving traditions has been an in-studio performance from the world renowned guitarist and founder of the “All-Star Guitar Night,” Muriel Anderson and this year is no exception.


In the wake of the devastation caused by hurricane Michael, Tony Simmons (writer and editor with the Panama City News Herald) and Jason Hedden (Chair, Visual and Performing Arts at Gulf Coast State College) join us to talk about the SURVIVORS anthology and the ongoing recovery in Bay County, Florida.

We’ll talk with an old friend, Mike Himebaugh, of Hello Dave, about a rare reunion of the group for FarmRaiser2018.  This is a VERY cool event coming up at Joe’s on Weed St that will benefit The Farm Way.

We’ve got some more surprises planned, but you’ll just have to listen to find out what they are.

Don’t forget, if you’re not in the Chicago area, you can listen and WATCH the show.  Just click on this link to WGN Radio’s live stream.

Happy Thanksgiving!
