A Somber Throwback Thursday?

Today’s Throwback Thursday finds are brought to you by the letter “S” … for Somber.

From out of the depths of Steve’s Rock & Roll past, here’s a Throwback Thursday photo from about 1960 or ’61. No idea why everybody looks so somber. From the looks of the background, it’s possible someone didn’t appreciate the band playing “Rumble” at their wedding.

And, with Johnnie’s birthday a happy memory and her 45th high school reunion coming up in weeks this pic from 45 years ago, senior year, 1973, surfaced. A very serious and somber 17 year old was channeling Gloria Steinem.

So, enjoy the rest of your Throwback Thursday … and don’t forget to smile.

Well THAT Went By Quick!!

After being used to doing 5 and 6 hour shows, WOW, 2 hours goes by fast!!

We had a terrific time hosting our second night in the new WGN Radio studio.  We got to talk with our old friend Tom Skilling and were treated to a wonderful live performance from two more very talented friends, Lisa McClowry and Lavant (Van) Coppock.

We also explored the connection between snakes and guitars (REALLY!!) and a whole lot more.  Then, before we knew it, it was time to go.

In case you missed it, the podcast has now been posted and you can hear it just by clicking on this link.

This Just In ….

Well, after we hosted the inaugural broadcast Wednesday of “WGN Nightside” coinciding with the debut week of WGN radio‘s new evening/overnight schedule, following the new time slot for Patti Vasquez & Andrea Darlas and preceding Nick Digilio‘s expanded show, it looks like we’re going back again.

In case you missed it, here’s a link to Wednesday night’s podcast.

Since Thursday night’s White Sox game has been cancelled due to rain, that will be us sliding back inside your radio speakers for the second night in a row from 11PM-1AM.

WGN called and it seemed like a fun way to celebrate the first day of Summer to us.

And, we’re really digging the view from WGN radio’s new digs.

And, we’ve just confirmed that the incredible, Lisa McClowry will join us for an in-studio performance along with her guitarist/co-composer, Lavant (Van) Coppock.

Y’know, this is one of those times when returning to our “Life After Dark” lifestyle for one more night seemed like an idea that really doesn’t suck.  So, we hope you’ll join us.
