Monday (8/8/22) WGN Podcast Links

Our Monday fill-in for Lisa Dent on WGN Radio covered a lot of territory. Here are some links to just a few of the places we went.

During the show, we got the sad news that we lost Olivia Newton-John. We contacted our friend Skip Griparis, who played guitar in Olivia’s band and he was nice enough to share some memories of his friend. To hear that conversation, just click on this link.

Skip & Olivia

We talked with Consumer Guide’s Publisher, Tom Appel about all things automotive and, in particular, what happens when your OnStar button stops working. If you’d like to find out, just point your browser here.

Anne Fogel’s brother, Marc, is in a Moscow prison with a sentence of 14 years of hard labor for having medical marijuana, and being convicted of drug smuggling and drug possession. Unlike basketball star Brittney Griner, you probably haven’t heard much about Marc. Well, now you can with this podcast link.

Legendary sports broadcaster, Vin Scully, who passed away at the age of 94, cast a long shadow over the broadcast industry and the memories of his fans. WGN Radio sports anchor Andy Masur was among them and joined us to share some thoughts about Vin’s life and legacy. You’ll find that podcast right here.

Those were just some of our Monday adventures.

Hope you’ll tune in to 720 AM to see what Tuesday has to offer. And, of course, if you’re not in the Chicago area, you can still listen just by clicking this link to WGN Radio’s live stream.

Stay safe,

Steve & Johnnie
