We take listeners' calls about what drives them crazy on the roadways. Also, we get a preview of this weekend's 33rd annual Japan Day celebration in Arlington Heights. Finally, we enjoy the music of St. Louis singer/songwriter Beth Bombara.
Two players from Chicago will be representing the National League: Cubs 3rd baseman Kris Bryant and his teammate 1st baseman Anthony Rizzo. And a player from the White Sox -- pitcher Chris Sale -- will be playing for the American league.
We discuss the political shift of Europe to the right. A female baseball player from an unlikely country makes history. And, an update on Nicaraguan laborers suffering from kidney disease from La Isla Foundation.
Wrigley Field turned 100 last year, and next year marks the 100th year of the Cubs as it’s tenant. But the Cubs have been around a lot longer than the stadium. We discuss the pre-Wrigley years with author Laurent Pernot. Also, everything you need to know about new rules for the 2015 MLB season.
