I'm filling in for Dave Playa Roger along for the news Curtis is producing. So let me tell you a little bit about myself. Roger should I introduce myself to the audience a little bit. What do you think? So because I mean, it's been awhile since you've been on that side of the Mike most of the time, you're on the other side of the Mike helping other people look good. That is true. Just just like Roger. But Roger being on the air, I radio life or been around for many years working here. WGN radio I've been producing shows mostly in many times in sports I've been producing the hamp OB and kosh show. That's right. People wanna call up and talk about how crazy the bears a season is and how fun it is. We can do that. But we're gonna try to concentrate mostly on Christmas today. Other things about me. I also work at zanies comedy club. I'm the public. Zanies comedy club. So a lot of times you might hear people talk about me or I'll be on talking about zanies comedians who are coming around on the station or throughout the community. How many clubs to the Chicago area? Now, there are three cloudy the original on well street, celebrating its fortieth year this there's one in Saint Charles which has been around for about twenty five years. And then there's a newer one about six years in Rosemont entertainment district. So thank you for asking. Well, I I knew about the first one I mean, everyone knows about that like his set the trend of comedy clubs around the country. I kind of knew about the the other one Saint Charles one that's been around long enough. But that new one I wasn't aware of the Saint Charles one does have great club. Yeah. A lot of people don't know especially city-dwellers because it's so far away. Yeah. Thirty mile. It's. Right on north avenue. It's just it takes a while. Yeah. You know, why go out that way? If you don't have to right. Yeah. And I live out there. Out there. And so if you live out in their area, it's close it's easy to get to which I think is great zanies part that they've spread out so much especially at new one at the Rosemont entertainment center. You've got everything over there. It's a regular little small town. You know, it's it's like a disneyfied small town. Yeah. But it is a small town, you have bars and restaurants and taverns, and it is a lot of fun. Yeah. That's cool. Well, that's great.
