Ah, you know it's Winter in Chicago when the streets are white. Not with snow, but with a salty residue that probably kills smaller life forms.
Welcome to another week, friends. Today is fun, it's the start of Steve Edwards' new show, the Afternoon Shift. It's from 2-4pm. What does that mean for you? Well, it's a great, local talk show to give you some hope that your lousy day just might end. What it means for me is two more hours a day to produce. We're up to the challenge though. Creating a good radio show creates good energy. And good energy is really the key to any given afternoon. Am I right?
Today: Ira Glass, Gloria Steinem, Navy Pier redesign and a study on why we vote for who we vote for when guessing on judges. Which you know you do.
We'll have our bumps along the way. But the new show has a great opportunity to be around for several years to come. If you like it, let us know. If you don't, turn on Roe & Roeper or go back to listening to the Robin Thicke channel on Pandora.
A story: We're not talking Whitney Houston on any of our talk shows today.
