Hello radio lovers! Chicago, you say?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm Pauly from Clifton:

Hey Mark, folks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Mr Fab:

Hey Mark! Mrs Fab has told me about Larry Lujack. She grew up in Chicago, so looking forward to this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Kat in Chicago:

Oh boy, a stain chart!
Avatar 8:03pm MarkTime:

Yes, Chicago ... eek I was just 6 when this would have played on my mom's radio

WGN... home of Frankyn MacCormack!

I was 5 and I was in North Carolina
Avatar 8:04pm MarkTime:

Otis - Yes, Franklyn would have still been the all-nighter
Avatar 8:05pm Otis:

I love the couple of WGN shows of Franklyn I have here. Big fan/admirer of his show direction of late night music for the parents up with the baby or the cop on the beat.
Avatar 8:07pm Otis:

I don't know of Larry Lujack so ready to be entertained and educated.
Avatar 8:07pm MarkTime:

Also wake-up tunes for milk delivery people

...and folks baking that bread at 5am. Ha, yes.

I love how some plants have their nickname changed... like tradescantia
Avatar 8:10pm Otis:

I'll have 2 waffles please.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Kat in Chicago:

Me too, Sondy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Krys O.:

Ah, snake plants. Thanks, Kat.
Avatar 8:10pm Sonderangebot:

How about some pumpernickel bread with that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Krys O.:

I'm dancin'!
Avatar 8:11pm Otis:

Extra butter with a side of cheese curds, yes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Krys O.:

I have some horseradish. Wish I had some kapusta.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Kat in Chicago:

I can't imagine polka blasting from the speakers first thing in the morning. I'm about ready for it by the time Stashu starts on Fridays.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Scott67:

G'day Sondy! I like your Pumpkins! Can I say that?

y grandma would have gone for pumpernickel with butter and sliced kielbasa. Grandpa was more the horseradish person
Avatar 8:13pm Otis:

Ha, yes Scott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Krys O.:

Zabawas were for the evenings in our house. We listened to the Two Edwards on WBLI. They had a Polish language show in the 50s and 60s.
Avatar 8:14pm MarkTime:

WBLI ... Long Island?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Krys O.:

My mom's 95. Her dad was born in the 1870s.

Wow, Krys!

Wow Krys, 95... go Mom!
Avatar 8:18pm MarkTime:

You can win a Major Award!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Kat in Chicago:

Mary Poppins - first movie I ever saw and first LP I ever owned, if memory serves. That was an awful version of Chim Chim Cheree though!
Avatar 8:19pm Sonderangebot:

Hahah there's one of Mama Dia's favorite songs! Hey Scott, I whispered the pumpkin carving idea to Otis, and he made it happen!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Krys O.:

Goulet?
Avatar 8:21pm MarkTime:

yes Robert Goulet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Kat in Chicago:

My mom had Robert Goulet records. I did not like them.

Sondy, made me feel the Torch was burning again, briefly.

My oldest sister was a Jerry Vale fan. I preferred Andy Williams over Vale.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Kat in Chicago:

I loved the Andy Williams TV show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Kat in Chicago:

Sanseveria!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Mr Fab:

Was he talking to himself?
Avatar 8:23pm MarkTime:

Andy Williams Show was fun, and played back to back with the Muppet Show my year in Miami

Book me a table at The Pump Room.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Kat in Chicago:

I believe the Pump Room is no more.
Avatar 8:24pm MarkTime:

Weird WGN hadn't figured out phones on the air yet. Once they did it was obvious when they switched from live to 7-second delay
Avatar 8:24pm Sonderangebot:

Time for zeppole. The good thing about St Joseph's feast.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Krys O.:

This is wunnerful! We watched Lawrence Welk too.
Avatar 8:25pm MarkTime:

My only time at the Pump Room was thanks to the WGN Roy Leonard Show in 1980
Avatar 8:26pm MarkTime:

I'll have to run some Lujack when he moved to mornings ... wacky and cynical
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Krys O.:

Oh, man...my very first favorite song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Krys O.:

I loved it because my favorite sister's name was Judy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm Kat in Chicago:

It's a rather adult song in some respects! references the Living Bra which I remember commercials for.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Krys O.:

Yes, Kat. At four years old, the lyrics flew right over my head.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Kat in Chicago:

That's one of those songs I'm not sure I actually liked, but was definitely fascinated by.
Avatar 8:30pm MarkTime:

Sonderangebot - Weird I never had zeppole until I moved to Orange County, California ... a little pizza stand made them, yummy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Mr Fab:

What song is this?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Krys O.:

Up until the pandemic started, there was a fair in my neighborhood. Always got a bag of zeppole. Yum!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Mr Fab:

Dang, he didn't back announce it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Kat in Chicago:

I was wondering that myself, Mr. Fab. Wasn't familiar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm Mr Fab:

Shazam, and Mrs Fab, didn't know either
Avatar 8:32pm MarkTime:

Could Be We're in Love by the Cryin Shames ... WLS loved playing local groups back then
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm Krys O.:

I think it was the Cryan' Shames, It Could Be We're in Love.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Kat in Chicago:

That sounds very likely, Krys. They were from the area.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Mr Fab:

Wow, ok, thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Kat in Chicago:

I think this duet even creeped me out when I was a kid!
Avatar 8:37pm MarkTime:

State & Randolph, with the smoking Winston billboard
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Kat in Chicago:

I used to be able to just barely bring in WCFL in the early seventies on my bedroom radio. Still lived in the Southeast and I was horrified by the weather reports. How could people live somewhere that cold?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Krys O.:

Even the straights were psychedelicized in the Summer of Love.
Avatar 8:41pm MarkTime:

It was easier to dress for winters than for summers most years
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Mr Fab:

Mrs Fab told me once when she lived in Chi-town that she walked thru the snow to get to school, only to be told by an angry nun that school was closed that day. After all that, she turned around and walked home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Kat in Chicago:

Poor kid!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Mr Fab:

i wouid def hire Ron Britain to do a show here at Sheena's, esp if he plays more songs on random kitchen implements and bells.
Avatar 8:43pm MarkTime:

Ah yes snow days at school ... the little 23-inch blizzard we had in January 1967 kept us home for a week
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Krys O.:

Wow! Had that happen to me as a kid in Westchester County, NY, but they showed us The Three Worlds of Gulliver in the auditorium until our parents came to pick us up.
Avatar 8:44pm MarkTime:

I forgot how much I liked Ron Britain. I'll have to play his odd little album-rock show he did for awhile overnights on WCFL
Avatar 8:46pm MarkTime:

Opera House and the Auditorium Theater had great acoustics
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Krys O.:

Hmm, interesting cover.
Avatar 8:49pm MarkTime:

"modern sized" ... aka tabloid
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm Kat in Chicago:

I used to like the Sun-Times because it was easier to read on the bus/el than the Trib.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm Krys O.:

Could have been Michael and the Messengers covering (Just Like) Romeo & Juliet.
Avatar 8:49pm MarkTime:

Took extra work to read the Trib on the Howard L
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Mr Fab:

What a fantastic jingle. What were they saying, "size up"?
Avatar 8:51pm MarkTime:

Mr Fab - yes, "Size up"

Ron Britain was brilliant! I would listen even if he didn't play any records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Krys O.:

A smashing good time! Thanks, MarkTime!

Thanks for the show fun MarkTime. Until next time!

You're welcome, all! And a big thank you to Sonderangebot. Until next month
Avatar 9:01pm WR:

Interesting air checks, the music was the weakest link, but that is to be expected. Have been working so haven't had time to comment much, the old folks birthday calls were particularly interesting. Near time to make dinner. Maybe waffles...
