Steve & Johnnie Schedule - Oct. 5-9

Don't forget that, in addition to this blog, you can find us on  Twitter, on Facebook and our Yahoo group

Also, as you plan your Halloween party for the kids, remember our Halloween Poem is now available for downloading.

OK, take a deep breath and remember that 2016 WILL happen in Chicago ... just without the Olympics. So, as we pick ourselves up and move forward, here's part of what's in store for us as we journey through the coming week.


Our New Music Monday Magic Laser lands on "The Sun Came Out" as we highlight the official U.S. release of this double album from 7 Worlds Collide. 7 Worlds Collide is the brainchild of singer/songwriter Neil Finn (Crowded House, Split Enz) which brings together talented performers such as KT Tunstall, Jeff Tweedy (Wilco), Johnny Marr (The Smiths), Phil Selway (Radiohead) and more to benefit Oxfam International. BTW, for you "vinyl junkies," "The Sun Came Out" will also have a vinyl release later this month.


Looking for some rest and relaxation via the movie Couples Retreat? Or maybe some thrills and chills in honor of Halloween by watching the new horror remake The Stepfather? Perhaps you'll want to take flight with the latest biopic Amelia.

We'll preview all of these and more movies for the month of October with Hank Sartin, Film Editor for Time Out Chicago.

And with a very special review of the Roller Derby movie Whip It we're happy to welcome back Barbara Dolan aka Queen B of Roller Derby Lite


For many years, as our Monday night segued into the wee hours of Tuesday morning, we'd check to see who our friend Les Paul had been jamming with at the Iridium Jazz Club, in New York. Now and then Les would surprise us with a call after his show. Once again, tonight we'll take a few minutes and remember the amazing Les Paul and his legacy as we revisit part of an interview, a story, a laugh or, most importantly, his music and listen to "A Little More Les."


Those of you who have been with us for a while know that we REALLY enjoy the month of October and all the "frights" it brings. Tonight, we 're joined by a man who, along with his rubber chicken's, has been escaping from the mean streets of BERWYN and hiding in plain sight on the other side of your TV screeens for many frighteningly successful years, Rich Koz a/k/a Svengoolie!!

Here's a picture of Sven with Elvira.


This week on our Radio Road Test we'll get some real world feedback from one of our long term radio road testers.
