Just in case you haven’t checked our Events page recently, we thought we’d post a reminder in this space.
6PM-10PM (Central) — Dave Plier is taking a night off and asked if we’d like to hang out in his space. We said yes so, once again, we’ll be sliding back into your radio speakers on WGN Radio.
Yes, it’s “the third of June, another sleepy, dusty Delta day” and, since it’s a Friday and the weekend, we just might find a little time to play.
We’ll hop across the big pond for a report on Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee from “Chicago’s Royal Watcher” and multiple Emmy Award winner, Fred Weintraub.
It’s been too long since we talked with Chicago’s incendiary blues queen, Joanna Connor. She’s one of the headliners at this year’s Chicago Blues Fest, has a terrific new album, a signature guitar and a whole lot more to talk about, so we will.
June 1st marked the start of hurricane season and, since the predictions are for an above normal year, we’ll get an idea of what to expect as we check in with a man we frequently turn to while we’re at our Florida vacation home, Ross Whitley, Chief Meteorologist for WMBB in Panama City FL.
Among our other guests will be Ron Romero, Founder & Chairman of the Board of the Illinois Rock & Roll Museum on Route 66. We’ll get the details of their 2nd Annual Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Sunday, June 5th, 2022 at the Rialto Square Theatre in downtown Joliet.
Also joining us will be one of this year’s Hall of Fame inductees, who happens to be a dear friend, the man behind The Ides Of March and many other incredible musical adventures, the multi-talented, Grammy winning, Jim Peterik.
Consumer Guide Automotive‘s Publisher, Tom Appel, will recap some of the best new vehicles he sampled at the, just concluded, Midwest Automotive Media Association’s spring rally.
We’re working on some other fun things and, as they fall into place, you’ll find the details right in this space.
Even if you’re not in the Chicago area, you can tune to WGN’s live stream just by clicking this link.
