Our Latest WGN “Drive-BY” Podcast!

We meant to post this sooner, but this past week filled up and was soon overflowing, so we’re just getting around to it now.  Darn, don’t you hate it when life gets in the way of your plans?!?

Anyhow, the bottom line is, we’re getting used to the new WGN studios and every time we fall by, we forget how much fun it can be.

And, it was!

Our long time engineer and keeper of the big plug, Adam Phillips, made sure our June 26th ” radio drive-by” went smoothly and made sure he was always within reach in case one of us hit the wrong button.

It was the first time we worked with producer, Vivianne Linou.  Not only is she a terrific producer but, we found out, she dreams in Greek and plays guitar. What’s not to like?

Our guests, Rick Pearson (Chicago Tribune Political Reporter and WGN Radio Sunday Spin Host), Patrick Crispen (Assistant Professor of Clinical Medical Education and Director of Educational Technologies at the Keck School of Medicine of USC) and Fred Weintraub (Royal Correspondent for WCIU’s “The Jam,” “The Worldly fellow” & Journalist heard on WGN Radio) brought their significant expertise and did their best not to make us sound too dumb.

And, have we mentioned, the view from the new WGN radio studios ain’t too shabby, either.

Looking down at the Chicago River, the Wrigley Building and other good stuff from WGN radio’s 18th floor studios on Chicago’s Wacker Drive.

All in all, the planets and the people involved aligned to help make Wednesday night’s show so much fun to do. We hope it was fun for you, too. If you missed it, or if you’d like to hear it again, just click this link to hear the full show podcast.

And, just in case we haven’t said it in a while, thank you so much for hanging out with us at our various cyberspace haunts and now and then when we jump back inside your radio speakers.  We never take your friendship for granted and we never will.

    It was tons of fun for me! I love hearing your voices and what you have to say. It is amazing how you put together words, on air or on line, that is very artistic and full of quality. Thank you so much for driving by now and then…I really appreciate it!
