While RFR was on hiatus for a few weeks in January, I filled the time by appearing on a few radio shows and podcasts. Here's a rundown:
On Friday January 6, I had the opportunity to co-host half of the Wendy and Bill show on WGN. As most know, I am married to Chicago talk show host Wendy Snyder and with her co-host Bill Leff on vacation, I was tapped to ride shotgun. You can listen to the full podcast at the official WGN website.
East Side Dave McDonald is a radio star and media personality from New York, and host of his own show on the Anthony Cumia network. ESD is a huge Star Wars fan and often asks me to join him on his crazy show to talk about Star Wars. Watch the video below as I choke on a Star Wars music challenge but ESD was too nice to let me lose!
Pugs Moran is a well-known radio personality in both Chicago and Dallas. He now hosts his own podcast for the Radio Misfits network and I was more than happy to spend the afternoon with Pugs at his southside Chicago recording studio. You can listen to the whole show HERE.
I was invited to join Patrick Phillips on his syndicated entertainment program Pop Culture Tonight to talk about the legacy of Carrie Fisher. You can listen the entire show HERE.
And to wrap things up, I returned to WGN Radio to sit in with "Elton" Jim Turano to talk about Chicago's loss of the Lucas Museum, Carrie Fisher's passing, and all-things Star Wars. You can hear the entire segment HERE.
Thanks to all the shows and their hosts for inviting me on to talk The Wars!
