Wednesday Night With Patti!

Just a heads up that, because it’s been much too long, this Wednesday night (June 5th) at 10PM (CST) HimNHer will be sliding back in to the WGN Radio studios, studios to hang out for a while with Patti Vasquez.  We’ll celebrate WGN’s 95th birthday, Les Paul‘s 104th birthday (Yes, our book “A little More Les” is still available) and probably engage in the usual amounts of mayhem that seems to break out whenever we’re all in the same place at the same time.

We hope you’ll tune in to 720 AM or, if you’re not in the Chicago area, you can still join listen and watch by clicking this link to WGN Radio’s live stream.

Hello, MIAMI?!?!

Well, proving that you never know where we’ll slide back into your radio speakers, this Sunday (June 2), at 3:15 PM (CST), we’ll pay a return visit to the WNMA 1210am Miami radio playground of our friend Bruce Silverman as we stop by his show, Silverman: On Sports.

We always have fun with Bruce and his definition of the word “Sports” is a bit broader than most, so don’t be surprised if we happen to talk a little about Les Paul’s upcoming birthday (On June 9, Les would have been 104) and our book “A Little More Les” and … well, who knows where else our collective brain power, or the lack of, may lead us.

If you’re not in the Miami/Ft Lauderdale area. you can listen in to their live stream from anywhere around the world just by clicking this link.

More Time Inside Your Speakers!

Well, it seems we didn’t lose WKGC’s license when we joined them Tuesday morning.

SO …..

They invited us back!

Which means …

We’ll be back on WKGC-FM (90.7), in Panama City, FL. on Thursday morning (April 25) at 9AM (CST)

Remember, if you’re not in the Panama City area, you can listen in online just by clicking this link.


We’ll be co-hosting that same show all of next week (April 29-May3).


Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, we’ll be showing up on WKGC more often even when we’re back in Chicago.

We’ve been consulting with WKGC for some time and this is just an expansion of the relationship we’ve developed with them.  We’re very proud of our association with WKGC and happy to be spending a little more time at the frequency that became the “go to” radio source for information during and after Hurricane Michael devastated the Panhandle.

No, nothing is going to change with our relationship with WGN.  Our WGN family ties are strong, so don’t be surprised when we pop up back inside your radio speakers from that location for a “radio drive-by” or a special now and then.

Let’s see now; should we tell you about the upcoming album from a talented friend that we’re helping produce while we’re in the Panhandle?

Nah, we’ll leave that for a future post.

Flower Power, Indeed!

This is the tale of one flower that may have saved the Monarch butterfly.

Oct. 10th, ’18 Hurricane Michael hit the Panhandle of Florida with 150mph winds. In the aftermath of the storm hundred year old trees were downed, everywhere you looked trees were snapped in two or in many cases leaves and bark were stripped from the trunk.

Along with the tree debris every imaginable flowering plant was found uprooted and dead except for the camellia.

Camellias throughout Bay County, some 15 foot tall remained standing to bloom just in time for the migrating Monarch butterflies.

Why the camellias were able to withstand Hurricane Michael’s unprecedented winds no one knows but, it is truly a blessing to us and the butterflies.
