As most of you who have been with us for a while know, Halloween is one of our favorite holidays.
We’ve always done our best to get in the spirit of the day … and night. So, with that in mind, we thought we’d use this forum to share a few treats with you. You may recognize some old friends we’ve resurrected for the occasion, but we’ve also included a few new goodies the Wonderful Tree Lady has sprinkled throughout our landscape to celebrate the season.
Over the years, on both WIND and WGN radio, one of our most requested Halloween guests was our dear friend, Chicago’s Ghost Hunter, Richard Crowe. The interview below is from the last time Richard joined us on WGN, in October of 2011.
From our Halloween photo archives here’s a picture of Johnnie taken shortly after we were married, in 1984, while working at WCLR (now 101.9 THE MIX), appearing in her Catwoman costume for a “Boo at the zoo” event at Chicago’s Brookfield Zoo.
Steve has always enjoyed getting into a spirited jam session with Henry, one of his guitar playing friends.
Any offering of Halloween treats from us would be incomplete if it didn’t include the Halloween Poem that was a part of our show for many years. To read and hear the Halloween poem and share it with some of your little people, just click on this link.
As we mentioned, the Wonderful Tree Lady has been hard at work and even enlisted the help of a friendly scarecrow to ward off any unfriendly creepy spirits before they enter our abode.
Once inside, you can see how the Wonderful Tree Lady worked her magic on a special Halloween tree.
And say hello to some of our little friends hiding inside the branches.
This year a friendly witch joined our friends overseeing the premises.
And, of course Madame O and the O Brothers are providing the music.
From all the spirits at our house to yours, have a Happy Halloween!
Steve & Johnnie
