We Say Goodbye to 2021 on WGN Radio!

3PM-7PM (Central) — We’ll be sliding back into your radio speakers on WGN Radio a little earlier than usual on this New Year’s Eve as we help to slam the door on 2021 with a whole lot planned including …

We’ll have a “world premier” of a really beautiful new song when we’re joined by two of our favorite people, Carl Giammarese of The Buckinghams and Lisa McClowry.

These two incredible performers have been having fun doing a few videos together and now they’ve combined their talents to write and record a terrific new song. And, as a special thank you, ONLY if you’re one of our New Year’s Eve listeners, you’ll be able to get a free download of the song we’ll be premiering.

Speaking of our favorite people named Lisa, one of the exciting new items on the 2022 calendar is the addition of, long time Chicago radio personality, Lisa Dent as Monday-through-Friday afternoon host at WGN. You’ll hear this member of the Country Radio Hall of Fame with Steve Bertrand next year and you’ll hear her stop by to celebrate with us on our year end wrap up party.

We’ll take a look back at 2021’s biggest tech stories and preview what 2022 has in store with 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.

Consumer Guide Automotive‘s Publisher, Tom Appel, will recap some of the best and worst of 2021’s automotive scene and give us a preview of what to look for in 2022.

One of the many unexpected impacts of all of us spending more time at home during the pandemic has been the explosion of the collectibles market. Our long-time friend who founded the Chicago Comicon, Gary Colabouno, joins us to talk collectibles and pop culture collecting the past year and moving into 2022.

As always, this is just a part of the game plan because, you know, we have to have a surprise or two, just to keep things interesting. Trust us, it’s been a while, so we’re gonna party like it’s New Years Eve! Remember, no cover charge and no dress code!!

In the Chicago area, just tune in to 720AM but, don’t forget, you can listen in from anywhere in the world just by clicking this link to WGN’s live stream.

We really hope you’ll join us but, whatever you do, please stay safe.

Happy 2022!

Steve & Johnnie

    I’m so excited to hear you guys today. I will even tell Alexa to remind me. She’s a doll on helping me remember. I also love the fact that you are on earlier. We old facts usually don’t make it to new years. Lol. Have a great show! You always do.

    The song is what a song should be…a communication that is full of truths AND easy to listen to
