We're live in the AllState skyline studio here, eighteen stories about beautiful downtown Chicago here until five and Steve Grzanich has your opening bell at five. And then the great Steve Cochran at six for your morning drive on this Wednesday morning. Wildcard wednesday. Who requested that Glenn with two ends want here? The little Harry Nilsson, right? There you go. Welcome back everybody. Three one two nine eight one seven two hundred is the phone number for talking text. Yeah. So we're talking about zombie comedies. Considering that the dead, don't die was just released this past weekend. And there've been so many fun zombie comedies that were just talking about some of them. Now, here's brain dead. Seven years later, New Zealand upstart, Peter Jackson ever heard of them directed. His third feature brain dead or dead alive in northern North America. Slapstick zombie movie. That's essentially, what would happen if Buster Keaton was horribly maimed after every stunt teaming with future Lord of the rings. Guru Richard Taylor. Jackson. Dallas is the screen with actors in blood guts, and viscera to the point of absurdity the joy in the film comes from just how creative the carnage can be. There's a reason that one scene. Most people have probably ever heard of involves a foyer, filled with zombies zombies, and dude wielding lawnmower as a weapon, the genius of brain dead is how long sequence goes on. And how many insane kills are built into it. Yeah. I saw that movie the first time I saw that movie. Was that alive? As was the title music box theatre at midnight. I couldn't believe what I was saying. I just was like, what the hell is this? I just can't believe that he went on to direct the Lord of the rings which is kind of like a more very prestigious. Well, his first three movies are nuts. Yeah. They're completely insane and meet the feebles. My god. Isn't that a fragile rock? Well, yeah, but it's like it's like kind of an X-rated rated puppet insane. Jeez. Insane. Were you ever fan of the Frighteners? Yeah, I didn't even know it existed. No recently, I love that movie. Now, of course, we have shown the dead, which is I mean, this is the this is the quintessential zombie comedy of all time that not only. Not only works as a comedy. But it's a great zombie movie. I mean it's really funny, and it's also a great zombie movie. And it was it was clear from the from the from the get-go that. Simon. Pegg a-, right. Adore those the John Rowe and paid fantastic respect to it, and loaded it with egg Easter eggs. I mean, the Italian restaurants that they were going to go to his full cheese. Yeah. I mean I mean every scene, we're coming to get you Barbara. Yeah. It's loaded. And I still one of my favorite moments. Ever in a movie is when Sean is walking to the to the to the shop to get the Coronado and, and the, and the and the and the pop and oblivious to the that are kind of walking down the street and the and the mayhem that has occurred and the blood and when he goes to the cooler, and there's a handprint of blood on the cooler and he goes in there to get to, to get the pop out little slip, just the little slit because he slips and blood and just every time I see it. It's one of my favorite moments in the entire movie. So then tell you about the first time I saw no no Sean of that was back in that was four when he came when it came out. Yeah. So my buddy Manny, who is a huge maniac horror fan. So we knew it was coming out. So I had like a preview pass to see it at a screening. So we go the first guy that I think of we saw at the Webster so we go we go we, we don't have a couple of beers beforehand across the street that bar on the corner across the street from the Webster place. And then we go across, and so the movie starts fantastic. I'm already loving it already. And then. The scene where they're, they're going to check on to see if. Shawn's roommate heat Pete, whether or not whether he's okay. So there's that the build up to that, and then they're looking to the car to see if they can get to the car. So that's all happening and then real change, and it skipped real four went to real five. And they were in the backyard pretending to be zombies. And I was like. And so I was like this isn't right. So I got up and I went out to to get somebody from the lobby. Now, it's like dude, I think you you're reels are mixed up. Yeah. Because this thing, just jumped and he's really like, yeah. So he was still in there watching it. I didn't want to see it. You know what I mean? I stepped outside. And so finally, they turn the projector off and indeed. They had screwed up the real the, the, the, the reels. And so they said it would take two hours to two. This was still when they had filmed, this wasn't right? Yeah. So it would take like an hour, hour and a half in order for them to fix it to put it in the right order. And so they gave us passes. So then the second time I went to a screening to see it Manny again, with me we get to that moment where they're checking on the on the roommate, and I'm like, we better this better be okay. Man. I'm telling you it happens again. And then it was fine. But the first time I saw it. I you know, we, we only saw third of it. Wow. That's I mean, that's it's weird to think that as late as two thousand four that was still a problem that could have because a lot of the theaters didn't switch over digitally until couple years after that. Yeah. I figured. I know it's probably because of my age. I just figured it happened so much earlier. Well, same thing happened. When I went to go see told you the story right about twenty four hour party people, where they played out of or to put it out of order and years later, I'm sitting in, I'm sitting in the green mill after hours and the, the woman who was the manager of the night, I saw the movie and the weird thing was, nobody complained I was the only person that I was the only person that came out and said, I think the real because it's a very unusual movie. I mean, in terms of the story, the narratives, very fractured and very believable that, that would be the way told. But nobody that movie would play in there for three weeks. And not one person besides me came up and said, I think the reels are out of order, and they were all my God. Yeah. So Shaun of the dead, the early odds were a boom time for funny and not before them zombies largely relegated to the horror section of video stores. The Romero movies are considered classics, but in terms of modern zombies culturally, all we had were the resident evil games poised to become their own strange, strangely successful, film franchise, then two thousand two brought us director Danny Boyle and writer. Alex Garland's twenty eight days later, the fast, they're not zombies. They're not zombies. They're infected there, people who are infected zombies die and come back to life. That's the actual definition of zombie in twenty eight days later, they're not zombies. I just wanna make sure that everybody knows that. The fast zombie movie arguably, kick started the new wave of zombie popularity and Edgar Reitz, Shaun of the dead, only help the virus spread boasting a loving endorsement from Peter Jackson, hot off the Lord of the rings Sean combined heart humor and a love of the and became a sizeable indie hit that grew and grew in popularity. Once it was video, it's at this juncture, that the, the releases of twenty eight days later, Shaun of the dead is really good onto the dead remake which by the way. I was so negative on that before that before that movie came out. I was like, how dare you, how dare you. And I really liked the remake. It's not nearly as good as Romero's movie, but it's really good. It distinguishes itself. Yeah. And, and I'm also not a fan of fast. But I like that movie. I really liked the remake of the debt and it was that was, you know. I remember during we had used to have my buddies over every Monday night to watch to watch raw. We'd watch wrestling and. USA network showed the first five minutes of the movie, the whole first five minutes of the movie, and I was like, whoa. The little opening opening is unbelievable in all the mayhem in the streets is Sarah Polly's driving around. It was just. Both halves of the John lurching towards critical mass some of the effects were immediate two thousand six Canadian comedy. Fido, which I loved starring. Billy Connolly, basically, adapted to concept from Sean zombies, as pets to feature length. It's beyond this point, especially with the premiere of the Walking Dead in, in two thousand ten. So. I remember loving. The first couple of seasons of Walking Dead. I mean that, that pilot was because I was say was Halloween. It was it was twenty ten. Yeah. It was like Tober two thousand ten. Yeah. Yeah. I thought it was great. And then it just kind of if I've talked about this before by the time, the, you know, the, the whole season with the governor, that was when I was doesn't work. So all right. More comedies here on seven twenty WGN. But right now we got to take.

But then it rings on the air, then he thinks what is this? And that's big. If there's an emergency, just call Justin show pitch. She'll throw something at me. Interesting text here. Oh. Doc from Casey now deduct early new assignment because I got a text earlier. But I thought that was from dumb and Kansas City. Hold on one second. Because we got a text. I didn't get to earlier Jerry. So we're getting all these texts from Kansas, Kansas. I don't if they're streaming or just tune in because I bet you can get pretty clear, downing I think right now we can't Jerry wrote much earlier. Hey, Matt us down here in Kansas wanna know if you have an arc we can borrow they had a tornado touchdown early, because I go to Kansas City diesel mount we've got a lot of clients down there for the company and I love going to Kansas City. I love the airport. It's the tiniest little airport. The people that live there, hate that airport say, I love your port. They hate it. Because if you have to fly there regularly, it is tiny, get out, which I love because it's like the complete opposite of, of O'Hare, right? And you get there. And like, you know, I've got TSA pre check which like makes they don't even have a separate line. They hand you an orange card so you can show that you're actually TSA's you're going through. So you don't take off your shoes. You still have to stand with two other people generally. I mean it's rare that there's like a real wine going. Okay. It's very nice. But then once you get through the gate. It definitely wasn't an airport that was built for post nine eleven America. Gotcha. It was. Because once you get through, there's no restaurants or anything like all, that's before TSA. It's a very tiny little place. And so they're trying to put more stuff in and they've actually just passed, like a billion dollar bomb. They're going to renovate and rebuild the airport. So it'll be cool ten years from now. Well, so you know what you have to do now, Mr. things the way they were well, no, I do like improvements to you have to start taking a lot of pictures of the city. Okay. Yes, I will start doing okay. By the way, did I mention this two weeks ago? I'm all over the place taken apart. The whole bag is almost gone. I mean it is open like you can see through the building. Big portions of that building now not the tower itself, because at flan marked by, but the old w in the building, right? The parking lot and the front part by our old WGN radio writing the one that was like ripped ripped open. Yeah. I can't wait till that thing is done though. I I'm saving tiny I wanna buy a condo there, so bad. I know you do. Okay. Okay. Gone fancy at airport. Yeah. Now I'm really like I gotta take by. Okay. Kansas City they had a tornado and I found out about it because on Twitter somebody said that it can to the airport. They were telling people they were forcing people like down into tunnels are taking cover at the airport, which is crazy. And so I texted a good buddy of mine who was out of town, but he said they didn't have any damage, but he said, another friend of ours, who works at a company down there did have some damage on his. Property from it. That was pretty crazy. I've got a friend who used to work in radio in town fact, used to work WGN longtime ago is a few years older than me and he teaches at a university, there, probably just outside Kansas City, but I, we're friends on Facebook. So when that tornado came through the storms in the tornado and everything came through he was posting like crazy, you know, all the stuff and everything. And so I was following through that. But yeah, it's the rash of tornadoes over the last couple of weeks, three or four weeks has just been mind bogg-. Seriously? And I spent in everybody's like, oh, when it when it's warm global L this no no, no no mobile climate change means that things are going to get crazier. We're going to have more intense hurricanes. We're going to have wetter maze. We're going to have more tornadoes, that is the more and I haven't read enough on. To know. But I know that they say that it's not about, oh, it's just getting hotter. It's the rising temperature is going to create greater variations in our weather patterns in problems in that way. I think we were way ahead of it when you had the, the person on about the, the moving of the magnetic poles, and I think that has a lot to do with two. Well, that's interesting. Roger, that's very.

Right. Welcome back. Thank you, sir. So tell us tell everybody about heroes of the space age, which just was released a couple of weeks ago. Oh, yeah. So thank God that's the last book of the year. I, I really enjoy writing, but the marketing of Bitta tents, so they hang out and made seven and it's a seven chapters, eight eight heroes. The hard part was, I knew writing it wasn't gonna be terribly difficult. Because there's a biographies oral histories and tons of stuff on these guys and women was both men and women this time. But trying to sue the down to eight people, right? Yeah, yeah. Great. And I didn't wanna do every, you know, I knew I had to Armstrong and all that John, Glenn to do downtown terrorist, Kobo the Soviet Union a year ago, Garin and so forth. But I wanted to get some interesting people in there, like, Margaret, Hamilton this woman who was a what, what I think the first software engineer at MIT of their, their inspiration lab who was responsible for a big chunk of the programming. The Apollo guidance computer which you know, had to k of ram and Victor, six K of ROY. From which pretty small and just took the moon and back when she was responsible for the interrupt coding, kept the lunar module going when they were having the computer freezes it was heading down to the surface and Apollo eleven. So some known some less known seems to get good reviews so far. So fingers crossed by ten copies here. Friends has a terrific book. It is, it's, it's terrific. And I know that you're, you're Apollo book sold out in three hours and, and I'm I'm very thrilled. That I'm very thrilled that I have a copy of it because he's a it is a gorgeous book, absolutely gorgeous saying, they really that sterling servings publishing and they really whip the extra mile just the quality of the cover the thing and all the stuff inside and, you know, they, they were they were generous with their budget. Not just turns the book production, but in terms of acquiring stuff, where it's that was really a blessing to be able to work on that project and having it actually sell well, is really a thrill yennin. Garb. Got it out. We did. 'cause I think last accountability twenty two Apollo books on the south. Three of them are mind cause they reissued a couple of old ones that I did it was like, oh, man, there's the remainder bins are going to be full anymore. Well on top of that there's new stuff coming out, because I mean obviously, we got the fiftieth anniversary coming up in July. And so I mean, there are books and specials and all kinds of things happening. What are some of those things that you're looking forward to? Well, I'm looking forward to seeing this net GIO film when it finally hits, a Peter Pan we've seen working at its of it. I've got a stack of books that I still need to go through the review 'cause 'cause the magazine get review copies of stuff. So John Lewis and the Roger Lonnie vote longtime experts in the story ends and of the guys that field to both written a couple of weeks that that hit the market this year, and, you know, every networks going to have a specialist kind and tons of independence stuff coming out. I kind of feel on the movie side, you know, between what I've seen GO doing, and they Powell eleven doctor just kind of feel like I might have seen the best already. I don't know. It's going to be interesting to see at the at the conference. You were talking about earlier. We're going to have some festival for, for those nights. Oh, great. We're bringing some of those along and premiered to that GIO thing there. But yeah, if it's going to be quite a show. I guess the only part that makes me sad is I suspect, you know, they'll be the policy of and fiftieth, which is until. Why? And then there's going to be the Apollo thirteen anniversary shortly after that. And the last handful emissions, last emissions that. In this thing on. And people say, yeah.

Although I thought maybe I should have called on my show up. Yeah. So you pretty late was a fun title. And I thought of it when I thought I love, I mean, we're comics. We're used to late hours. So I thought, if I ever want to try to get like a talk show pretty late is already built into the brand, right? But then I thought, well, I don't need to be on at night all the time. So maybe someday, I won't be on just at night. So just Patti Vasquez. Yeah. You could be pretty pretty early. I don't even pretty his paddock. Yeah.

Whatever it takes and both regular contributors here WGN radio happy to have him in studio right now. And we were talking a little bit about some of the therapies that folks. Turn to when it comes to depression or suicidal thoughts or suicidal idealization we have on the line squat. Hey, Scott, great to hear from you from eight one five. Hey, thanks for taking my call pay. Michelle. Thank you live here from you. Have you heard anything about hypnotherapy or any reasons why marijuana on the list, I know? The gold tremendously. But. Struggle. I'd be day. And. And. Continues to come in my mind. But I think I'd be selfish. I think to do any about it. But. Throw because all my life revolved around this. Leaping working really chilly. I get up to work, and I don't take care of normal areas 'cause I'm kind of be an isolationist. So. No, it's a lot. No. Absolutely and squad. I'll I'll speak to part of this certainly I have worked with a lot of clients who have pursued hypnotherapy as well as psychotherapy. I am. A fan of combining the two. I find that psychotherapy. There's a lot more research unfamiliar with that supports the efficacy the usefulness of psychotherapy, but but also. Inclined to encourage you to try anything that gets you out and trying something different. That that might move you away from feeling isolated in in your world there and trying something new you know, because. Five minutes dates, and you know, tied times about fire by actor. How long have been saying your doctor this particular doctor for? For ten minutes and enduring the when these feelings started with it before you started seeing this doctor or is it been since your treatment with him. You know, what you know what they've? They've they've they've gotten. It's it's worse. Right. So that's not choice. I have to make I guess which to whether or not you see different treatment. Maybe two. Or seek some some. Yeah. Or somebody new out to offer me different an open mind. I guess. Well, you know. Here that Kathy has. Yes. I certainly always encourage patients to seek a second opinion to get a fresh set of eyes on a problem. And sometimes, you know, it's a relationship issue with your current physician. Sometimes it's six six somebody new has a new approach or different set of lenses that they see your problem. I I don't think it's a bad idea to seek a second opinion. But it's it, you know. You have to keep in mind that the grass is always greener as much as we would like so that you don't get your hopes up on a new doctors gonna fix everything right away. Be realistic. It's it's a chronic long-term problem. And unfortunately, it often requires a chronic long-term solution, and I feel for you. I know it must it must be a hard way to live day in and day out. But please keep keep hope and please keep looking for more solutions. You can't I'm trying you know, I look forward to read as to listen to pay show it's up lifting, and he is the best antidepressant. It is does can you Stalin one thing to hopefully. Mentioned about. Cycle therapies. The quick definition. Yeah. So that's that's what you think of when you think of talk therapy. Right. That's where you're on the couch and the docket sitting on the on the chair, and you talk through the difficulties that you're going through. And that's what I do most of the time. And there's research that would say that the combination of the medication that you're on. And talk therapy is probably the best way to mitigate suicidal thoughts and depression. So I would encourage you to try both. I would absolutely encourage to talk to a therapist psychotherapist. There's a I talked to I taught in talking counselor that not the same thing as well. I would talk to make sure somebody who who's license who is familiar with depression, and suicidal thoughts. Make sure it's somebody who has experience with what you're going through. So that they can relate, and they can help you. Okay. More quickly go. Okay. That's okay. Back to tennis mention. Therapy or something? Yes, exactly electric convulsive therapy.

So what it does is it actually induces a seizure? So it what it does is it kind of kind of scrambles in some ways, the the neural pathways within the brain. And so for some people it can almost work like it's resetting like when you think about rebuilding your computer, you turn it back on again. And then, you know, things the connections at form the may form new connections, and they may work better than they did before. So just a simplistic way of putting it so for some people who were medication is not seeming to help sometimes alternates that they can be affective. So it's. Yeah. It's that for signed therapy in a few have other medical conditions. You may not be a candidate. Okay. So something to keep in mind, though, this, of course, I'm, you know, depending on what your doctor who you turn to for further assistance and advice and brother and Trident thankfully times squat. It's always great to hear from you. And I'm glad you shared this with us. I know it's not easy to do. And I think he's speak for a lot of people out there who might be thinking similar things.

But I also I wanna talk because this isn't. Line of like one. We kinda get consumed by an idea, you know, our teenagers. I have a son who's fifteen already taking his PSAT. We can set them up for what's gonna be next as teenagers in this college cheating scandal is not just about the idea that oh, we if you don't get into the right school, but whether or not they should be going to, you know, we should be forcing them into college. A great article, I won't talk about popular mechanics about trade schools, and the stigma that a lot of have I remember even in grade school, my eighth grade teacher. Let's call her missus Jordan because that was her name. She she would do well on a test. She would say what do you want to be a bus driver when you get up? We know what there's no -bility in any job. People have somebody has to do the work. And I just end the thing that made us all mad was and it makes me start to cry. Now is at one of my classmates, Erika her dad was a bus driver. So we were all collectively angry. But he with sing was it even we knew. But yet none of us. I think almost everybody went to grade school with still went to college even in our minds knowing that there is so much value in jobs, and they're a great jobs there. There's there's a need for the skilled trades, and we won't talk about that a little bit. When we come back on seven twenty WGN Patti Vasquez.

And I'm Nick Gilio here till five AM Steve percentage has the opening bell at five in the great Steve Cochran at six has your Friday. Morning drive. Our Friday regular features will return next week. And I will announce who is now going to be my producer. That person will begin on Monday morning on the show on officially be my fulltime producer. So looking forward to that three one two nine eight one seven two hundred is a phone number. And we have been talking about weird habits. Or, you know, weird quirks that we all have. And if you would like to jump in three one two nine eight one seven two hundred that's the phone number for talk or text with your admittedly, strange little quirks and habits, and here is Carl on WGN. I Karl Nick Oriole. All right. What's up? I guess this would fall under the category of post nasal drip, my girlfriend when we would go to the show we'd be sitting and watching the movie and every so often she'd be going. She would go. And I never questioned her. I never questioned I didn't wanna know. But she was just constantly going. All didn't have a cold. She wasn't sick or anything. I was later on. I realized she probably had post nasal drip. And she was getting rid of it. Then I had a buddy who also had postnasal, drip. But he did something else. He would make a sound that was like. And I asked him one time I said, what are you doing? He goes on scratching the back of my throat. And I'm going what? And then it dawned on me also that he had post nasal drip. And that was his way to get rid of it the post nasal drip. But he called it scratching his throat. He was with his mouth close. And you know, what I'm saying? I got. Yeah. I have another friend. This is kind of strange his wife had that separating the food on the plate situation. Right. I never watch. Any? I never watch people eat. I look at my plate. I eat my food. I don't people and see what they're doing in their business. Right. It used to drive him nuts because his wife had everything separated on her plate. She would take a little bitty from here a little bit from there a little bit from there, and it just drove him up. He couldn't stand it. He could take it might have triggered his divorce because it because they got a divorce and then one day he confessed to me after I've known this guy for years and years. He said, you know, what? My dad was really impressed with the way you eat. And I said why? And he said, well, he was impressed because you always clean your plate. And I thought well, yeah. When when I take food and put it on my plate, I take the amount that I'm going to consume. And then I can sue that. I ended up with an empty plate because I took as much food as I wanted to eat, and he said, yeah, my dad was really impressed with his family apparently had the habit of piling food on their plate and overdoing it a little bit and going, you know, I took much and then when they would clear the table there'd be leftover food most of their plates. You know, what do you do? What's the deal? What what you just take the amount that you're going to eat? And if you need to take a little more, take a little more. But what's the deal unless it was competitive thing when you have, you know, right? And you wanna get you wanna make sure you get your share? So you pile it on. Right. Right, right. Yeah. I I never had that issue because I don't have a I'm an only child. So I've there was enough food for my parents and for me. And so I think a lot of people eating very in very strange ways or have their eating eating habits and all that stuff. Carl thanks for the call. Join a want to jump in its three one two nine eight one seven two hundred and yeah. So let's let's get to some texts here that have come in. If you guys want to jump in with your weird habits or quirks three one two nine eight one seven two hundred Jason says, my biggest quirk is that I always have to carry two pens in my pocket. For for for me. I'm very very here at work. I have I have a very specific routine that I have to do every time I come in. And I have to set up the studio the way that I want it set up. And. Have the computer in a keyboard and a certain spot if the computer screen in a certain spot the monitor that's on the council they have to have in a certain spot. I have to have my Cup with about twelve thirteen fourteen pens in it. I have to have that at all times. I have to move the phone that I use to take the calls from the callers, I have to move closer than most people have it. So I have to like specifically I have to set up the studio the way that it's set up right now, or I will be very very uncomfortable. If they're, you know, there was a time when we were working over at over at the trip building, and I would use the the the studio on the seventh floor, and I pretty much was the only one I'm I'm pretty much the only one that uses the studio they use they use this studio for. I think I think maybe Williams does this show in here. Sometimes he does he does he does. And then they do podcasts in here. But put, but I'm pretty much the only one that uses the show like on a pretty regular leases the studio 'cause I prefer the studio because the other one has a nice view. It's got a nicer view because you can see the navy pier. And you see the lake and everything I don't care about that. Because this studio was set up almost exactly like the studio on the seventh floor of the trip building. I mean, it's set up almost exactly like it. And the other studio the producers too far away. The producers on the wrong side. I want the producer to my left, and I want to be able to see the producer in any other studio. It's to the right and their way, faraway. They're all the way on the other side of the room. So once I got into the studio, and I looked at it. And they set it up almost exactly like the seventh floor studio, again, I'm very particular about the way the studio was set up and how you know how my stuff is in front of me. And so that's why I started working in the studio when we were working across the the river there at the at the trip, and we were preparing to move here. They basically demolished the studio on the seventh floor and I had to use the showcase studio. Showcase studio was the one that you can see from Michigan avenue. The showcase city was covering glassy were on Michigan avenue. You could see on pioneer court people walk by and outdoor Mike. If you wanted to talk somebody walking down Michigan avenue, you could I was not crazy about that studio. I, you know, I found it to be especially distracting for my guests like if I had guests on they rely. They were live in studio idiots coming up and banging on the window constantly, and I used to be on Saturday nights. And I'd have to use that. And I can't tell you the number of drunks and would come up and smack into the window and all that kind of stuff. So I liked being on the seventh floor away from people. And I'm eleven stories higher here. So I like that even more. But when they demolished the studio for about three weeks, I think it was three weeks a month. I had to use the showcase studio and everything was the opposite of what it was on the seventh floor. And so like, I said, I'm very particular particular about the way I set up the studio it's got to be set up the way, I want it. And the computer was on the wrong side. Nightmare for everything. Yeah. And then so for that three and a half weeks three three and a half weeks almost month that we had to do our show out of the showcase studio. I was like oh God. And then. You know when I came here. The first time I came to the to. Here to just check out the the the the, you know, the space we weren't ready to open yet. But I came in. And I was here and Adam Phillips was one of the guys that help put this whole thing together that helped open up this the space I came in. And I saw this studio and I walked in. I was like this looks exactly like the seventh floor. So I'm taking this studio. That's all there is to it you called dibs on. I did. I did. No, I absolutely did. We actually had to switch stuff around because I call dibs up. I'm not kidding. I'm not kidding. So anyway, but now there's studio setup. Exactly like it. When I get here. You know, other people use the studio, and then they screw it up in my opinion. It's like why do you do that? Why is that over there? Why is this here? So, you know, it takes me a good ten fifteen minutes at the beginning of my shift when my shift, but when I get here because I usually get here a couple of hours or an hour and a half before the show set everything up, and here the way, I want it set up in a very particular about that. And that's a habit. That's that's one of my weird quirks. What am I wear work works? And I have to have my Cup full of pens. I have a pen. I always will have a pen and my Johnny Carson pencil. My my the tonight show with Johnny Carson pencil with the two with an eraser on each side. Because those were that's how Johnny Carson had it. So that's I have that in front of me at all times. So. Yeah. Because I'm a weirdo. You wanna talk about quirks? Weird weird. I'm very very weird work quirks here. It's at at the station. So three one two nine eight hundred seven two hundred what are your weird habits and weird quirks? Here's Joanna WGN. Hi, joanne. Hi, nice son is ambidextrous. And if he has to write multiple lines. He will right. The first time and then sleek is right. The second one which is left and so on until he's finished leading trading asked him know why? And he said he likes to cheer on his mind. Okay.

Our phone number is three one two nine eight one seven two hundred for talk and text get us in here. Anytime you want three one two nine eight one seven two hundred. All right. We will explain what that piece of music was that we just heard as I welcome guest to the show and its Ricky's or has been on the show many many times, you know, him here from WGN is website is sports songs dot com and it's Super Bowl weekend coming up this weekend and every year at this time, we have Rick in-studio. So that we can do some Super Bowl related and football related sports songs. And let's welcome to the show. Thank you very much for having him back. Rick. Thanks before. People who might not know when did you get into explain what sports songs is in. How you started collecting songs? Any songs performed by an athlete coach referee executive in the world of sports in high school players that can be professional players. They can be Olympia. And you're always on the look for for NewsTalk hallway always, and you can scour the if it's a little bit easier now because you have you know, the internet, you, can you can just scour the internet and find some crazy. He's gonna find some real gems. Yeah. Yeah. And so we started this collection over twenty probably nearly thirty years ago. I've been collecting, you know, and it's not because of the Super Bowl shuffle. Even though I should say that since we're honoring the Super Bowl and football. That's right. Yes. But there are songs that were before the Super Bowl and a whole lot after the Super Bowl. And the thing is this that you know, everybody just thinks oh the Super Bowl. Shuffle was was like the first of its kind. And that's just not the case in having you on the show for so many years red realized that the sports songs go back many many many years before the Super Bowl shuffle. They do. Indeed, it's just the Super Bowl shuffle just absolutely captured the imagination of the nation and also its being from the city. You know, it's it's also the one that stands out the most, of course, huge throughout the world was. Yeah. That everybody knows everybody just thinks that's the sport song. Right. Nobody else ever did it, and you will hear it this morning because you can't we can't Wiki we have to play it. You can't do a Super Bowl football themed sports song. Edition without honoring the Super Bowl show. Okay. What the music that? We heard as we were coming back from break is also done by a sports is a sports person. Yes. Indeed, former NFL head coach former northwestern head coach Dennis Green. He had abandoned the nineties called the sunset music band. And he put out a CD in nineteen ninety-five called sunset celebration. That was him on the drums and on the horn was none other than doc severinsen severinsen. Yes. We've heard that. We've heard that cut before. That's good stuff. And Dennis Green. Of course, you know, also responsible for thirty thirty two seconds of the greatest the greatest press conference after after a loss in NFL history. There's are who we thought they were definitely. I love that. You know when that happened? I just I I can't tell you. How many times I watched it? And we have you know, I played the every once in a while. I'll just bust the audio out. You gotta and and it's just devastating going nuts. And it's just classic a classic press conference. So all right. Well, let's get started. It's Super Bowl Sunday. Are you who are you rooting for anybody in particular in the in these two teams, I'm rooting for the chicken wings? You're in for the. Oh, okay. So you're not rooting for people are actively rooting against the patriots as usual. Well, I would rather see someone else when I would have rather seen somebody else in it. But yeah, you know, before we start playing before we start playing the the the songs you obviously you saw that non call against the against the saints to get the Rams to. I mean, that's just that was crazy. I didn't watch the game. But that didn't obviously you couldn't get away from it. As a news story or see the footage. I've seen. Was one of the most ridiculous things. I just I don't know how with instant replay. Yeah. They could've could've missed them. Yeah. Yeah. I mean. They can't. They can't review a pass interference call. Can they that's? Exceptions that. Yeah. I think they can't. I think they they can't actually review a pass interference call. Oh, that's this off season. They're going to probably have chance. The other thing is that you know with the bears how they ice the bears kicker. They'll probably have to talk about when you can call a time out. Oh, that was unbelievable. That was unbelievable. I mean that was just unbelievable though, the whole thing just the way that game ended and the timing of that time out, I'm I'm sitting in the kitchen at this building with Dan Hampton, and etto Brad veg, and Dan Hampton was standing up through his Cup on the ground and said things that you probably know he was so it was like a gut punch. He didn't. I mean, there was that moment. Yeah. Yeah. And then he started the grumbling. I think everybody who is watching. I think everybody who is watching that. And I'm not I'm just a casual fan of football. I don't follow it. But I did have the game on. And now, I was watching it. And I just I was stunned. Silence. Because you can't you couldn't have written it. How that would end it. And the fact that they called the time on the actually made the first attempt, right? I just. I hit the uprights doing going. I just it was crazy. And I'm sure people thrilled that we're bringing this up. But anyway, all right. Let's get let's get to the music. Well, I mentioned Dan Hampton hall of Famer works here. Jeon you hear them on the hand Bobi show. Why don't we play track? One thirty six and nineteen eighty-seven. He put together a band with a couple other bears players, Dave dourson, and Walter Payton and a few hockey players including Troy Murray, and they were called the Chicago six, and they put on a big concert over at what was then known as the UIC pavilion and and during that concert, they put out a VHS video of the concert. And he does the the classic Springsteen song glory days. Okay. All right. This is Dan Hampton. Good. One. So they did a VHS tape..

Medical Marijuana Expansion Bill Allows Cannabis As Opioid Alternative

"Here you know the governor earlier this week signed a Bill to expand the medical marijuana experiment in, Chicago which is a big deal because governor Rauner by and large has not been I don't want, to say he's been a big. Supporter of the program, but he's. Not been big when it comes to expanding it in and he certainly did this. Week and it has to do, with opioid deaths almost two thousand people died of opioid deaths in Illinois in two thousand sixteen seventy two thousand around the country and the governor is going to allow medical. Marijuana to be used in replace of what. In. Percocet vicodin Oxycontin and things like that What do you make of the governor's move Well I think it is an. Interesting approach to thinking about the opioid epidemic the idea presumably is that a significant component of the opioid epidemic reflects people who develop problems with opioid addiction after receiving prescriptions from their physician for. Any number of things that might require opiates and the idea is that if you can use an alternative, to opiates to help manage those patients symptoms perhaps you can minimize some of the addiction and some the. Problem that, we're seeing that a good assumption I mean how big of? A, problem does come from prescriptions. From doctors well that's a really good question I think that we're just really now learning more about How the epidemic has developed and there are some data that show that some people develop. Addiction problems, after receiving, prescriptions but but someday to show that there's really not a lot of. People, in fact there was a recent study that was published looking at people. Who hadn't been hadn't been using opiates and had some kind of procedure and were prescribed opiates and it turned out that less than one percent of the people who had prescriptions developed problems so. It's a little bit unclear if that's gonna make a big difference in the opioid crisis or where all, of this is coming from and I think the thing for me that's so important about all this and. Raising awareness, is the need for us to know more about it we? Need, we really we really need. More research on who's who's developing problems why they're developing Problems and what is their pathway to that issue so even if it isn't going to alleviate a greatly alleviate the opioid crisis when it. Comes to addiction could you make the argument that it's still medical marijuana is still overall a safer and perhaps maybe not more effective but at. Least a. Safer and, effective replacement for these drugs or do we not even, know that yet Well I think, those are two different questions in terms of the safety issues you know. They're they're they're they're really guests from marijuana alone is highly unlikely we've seen it happened probably in. Kids so at their children are, more susceptible to that kind of extreme, problem but so in in that respect perhaps maybe medical marijuana is, safer, the question about efficacy though I think is an unanswered question and that's in my opinion where we need really a. Lot more work there's some good data that shows that medical marijuana helps improve, nausea in patients who are, receiving chemotherapy it helps adults with chronic pain and it helps adults with multiple sclerosis and some of the specificity issues, there's emerging data about its use I but I don't think? We have great data about whether or not Not marijuana's better than an opiate, for say you. Know an orthopedic. Procedure like if you, broke, your bone and had had a, surgery that way so that I think there's a lot of questions about. Efficacy that remain and you know marijuana maybe safer in some ways and opiates but there's there's huge. Problems with marijuana to you can, have marijuana abuse that's a that's a problem there's you know all kinds of issues related to marijuana use, in, pregnancy and its impact on the unborn child or young children so There's just a lot of unanswered questions so those of us who know nothing about it but has strong. Opinions You. Know well this is obviously the doctors were over prescribing this whole. Thing these opioids they're giving about like candy you seem to be making the case that that's not necessarily true I would like to say that, I don't think we entirely know when you look, when you look at when you look at the NIH website when you look at a lot, of reputable websites there is definitely, this contention that a lot of prescription prescribing patterns have led to this issue and I'm, not necessarily refuting that but what I am trying, to bring awareness to is the fact that if we us. If we sort of pivot how we do, things we need to really think carefully about what, we're pivoting to and if we're. Pivoting to the right, thing we don't know a lot about. Medical marijuana yet. And we need. To learn more if we do pivot it's going to be a big. Pivotal seems like right there. Were forty two thousand patients are approved. Now in the medical marijuana program in Illinois last year about two point Three million. Patients received opioid. Painkiller prescriptions so it has the ability to to dramatically expand the medical. Marijuana experiment in this state Yeah potentially potentially a. Could I think. That, that's to, be
