July 8, WGN “Radio Drive-By”

Friday, 7/8/22

6PM-10PM (Central) — Dave Plier is taking another night off and, since we didn’t trash the studio too badly the last time, he asked if we’d like to hang out in his space again. So, once again, we’ll be sliding back into your speakers from the main deck of the Mighty 720, WGN Radio.

Among our guests will be the man who has been called “Chicago’s Picture Poet,” our friend, Barry Butler, the internationally published landscape and cityscape photographer. We can’t wait to see how that conversation “develops” (Sorry, couldn’t resist!).

Also joining us will be Jim Engel, noted cartoonist, illustrator, & designer, who is also the children’s television curator at Chicago’s Museum of Broadcast Communications.

Two incredible talents who are also two of our favorite people, Josh Solomon and Erika Brett from The Empty Pockets, will treat us to an in-studio performance.

It’s been much too long since we spent time with legendary roadhouse party pianist, songwriter, and vocalist Marcia Ball. Fortunately, the planets have aligned and so have our schedules, which means she’ll be joining us Friday night.

Of course, this is all just part of the game plan so, you’ll have to listen to see what other surprises we have in store and how it all plays out.

We hope you’ll tune in to 720 AM but, if you’re not in the Chicago area, just point your browser to this link to hear WGN Radio’s live stream.

Stay safe,

Steve & Johnnie
