I'm looking at the unified theory of systemic racism and positing that that is not the problem that the problem is that urban political elites largely of color are running our nation's biggest cities into the ground.

I moved back to chicago where i lived for thirty years. from the time of being a a young child six years old to you know My mid thirties. When i finally left and moved to seattle with my lovely wife where we raised two children. I had to come back in twenty twenty looking at the city in chaos and turmoil.

"To watch. Dean Richards has a few suggestions for us Boy just hearing that song reminds me as I'm sure a lot of our listeners probably experienced the same way I did. Listening to Spike Odell that morning, Right? When the first plane went into the tower, everybody thought it was, you know, a small plane that had an accident. And then the second plane hit and it was clear what was happening and You know the news? The news went crazy from there, but, yeah, So many documentaries, uh, have covered the actual events of that day. I think some of the better ones. Which are available for you to watch our hula five part docuseries that's called 9 11 1 Day in America that recounts all the events of that day. And everything that we went through. I love this one documentary that was produced actually by a former WGN radio producer. Former producer of Milt Rosenberg's extension 7 20, Greg Jacobs. And his filmmaking partner, John Cisco. Of the nephew. I believe it was of the great Gene Siskel called 102 minutes. Uh, that changed America. It is showing on video, but it took the 1 120 minutes. The 1st 120 minutes of the attack on America and recalled it through eyewitness accounts from people who lived in New York. They assembled it. In real time based on stories that people were telling. It's such a well done documentary spin out for quite a long time, but it's a different perspective that we normally get Spike Lee just put out A new Docuseries. It's a four part Daki series that's running on the HBO that's called Spike Lee's New York City epicenters. It focuses on the effects of New York City Apple TV Plus has one that's called 9 11 inside the President's war room. That focuses in on what was going on behind the scenes with the president and his Cabinet, and you know, some of them behind the scenes stories that we had never heard of before. New movie came out a couple of weeks ago that's on Netflix called Worth. Starring Michael Keaton, which is very, very good, very reflective. Uh, it is the story about a guy who was put in charge of the 9 11 survivors. Fund, and he has to figure out how to compensate people who were affected by the tragedy at 9 11, and it's a very compelling story about you know, putting dollars. Up against actual human life. Again. That's on Netflix and one that's new this week is a musical. That it's called. Come from away. You probably have heard the story of how there was this small town in Canada. That took in, uh, you know when all the planes were grounded right after the attack about 70 planes landed in this small town in Canada. And how welcoming this community was to about 7000 people who suddenly you know were there and you know they didn't 100% understand why at first But a musical was made about this. It was a Tony Award winner on Broadway, and now the big screen adaptation of It is on Apple TV plus call come from away. And I should mention as well that here on WGN TV, we've got a special on tomorrow night at 6 30 called Chicago remembers 9 11. Which gives us kind of a Chicago angle in, you know, families and people who were affected and remembering their loved ones who were lost. So there is no shortage of you know, TV movies and Documentaries to commemorate this day. 20 years ago. Uh, I have posted on WGN radio dot com. My interview with Carol Marine. We got caught in all of this. She happened to be Working over at 60 minutes in New York, when all this happened, you know, we just talked to Carol. Oh, did you Okay, Alright. We played that clip. And with Dan rather and it still gets to you, doesn't it? It really does. Yeah. I had her on and You know, we we almost lost Carol Marine that, Yeah, no kidding. I mean, it's so it's. As Carol said, I'm sure she said in your interview. She just doesn't want anyone ever to forget, right. You know, all of that so plenty to reflect on For the 20th anniversary. I've gone back and forth. Sometimes I feel like watching those programs. Sometimes I don't. It's too painful. But I did see some of Spike Lee's documentary on HBO last night, and I'll tell you he had some video that I had never seen before. And he also have the story of the maritime evacuation, which has not been told right. But In addition to making me sad to see all of that it made me angry. It made me angry that, uh, we we didn't have our intelligence communities working together. To possibly prevent that. And also, of course, made me angry at the perpetrators. What it reminds me of is that there actually was a time in America where we all felt Unified. Yeah, we we all word. You know, uh, you know, feeling the same way and that hasn't happened in a long time in our country. All right. Give us one. Uh, happy thing to watch over the weekend. If we want to escape from the news. What do you suggest? Well, there's a documentary I want you to watch that is about the friendship between Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X is called Blood Brothers. It's about their unbelievable friendship and their ultimate falling out. It is On Netflix best movie of the week is Oscar, Isaac and Tiffany had ish in a dramatic role really good in a dramatic role, called the Card counter that one's on in theaters only this weekend. I like blood brothers. I'm gonna go with that going on escape. Have a good weekend. Dean..

Er, Well, I guess it will wanted well, there will be weekend games, so we don't have the schedule yet for the games, But all the games will be played at night. So if they're weeknight games that All between Monday and Thursday. And I guess John doesn't call the show The John Land Acre Oasis anymore. Did you hear about this? Yeah. He calls it the John Records. Landeck Arrest Stop I am not sure that is really a good idea. Because what do you think about when you hear rest stop. Besides getting a snack, you know you do other things that arrest up Does John really want to go with that He should call the program extension 7 20. Keeping with the tradition here of the night time talk show being called Extension 7 20. I think But he's John and Milk Rosenberg. Very similar persona. Sounds like Dr Milton Rosenberg on acid He's on tonight from 7 to 10. Whenever I land Decker speaking whenever I think of arrest stuff, I think of dirty bathrooms. Now you think of the land decors show. Okay, well point taken, but already addressed if people have been paying attention, like Bob I agreed it only company one night. To change from We went to Oasis went to rest stop, and that's exactly what I thought After, like, 12 hours. You know, it sounds like just getting out of the car and going into digging to be in a bad bathroom. So it's no longer called that. And as we just realized that is now the John Land Decker. I want to make a note for Bob. Somebody write this down and leave a message for him. The John Land Decker Travel Plaza. Dear Mr Surat Now what's wrong with that, Bob? And just let me expound here. Okay? The Stanley Cup. We don't even know what the schedule is, but I agree if there is a game Monday through Thursday And it will be in prime time and it's during this time, then I'll be off. But you know that happened all through the Blackhawks season so that you know, I know how to handle that. With a lot of anger for, um, Now let's get to this milk Rosenberg thing. Extension 7 20, in my opinion was one of the greatest Radio programs on this station with Milt Rosenberg. And I was working at a competing station and I'd get off the air and I'd listen to milk at night driving home. And I thought the guy was just fantastic. I mean, he was so intellectual. He was so smart. He was so well spoken on so many different subjects. I mean, it was amazing that that program was even on radio because it was really a smart show. Mean extremely smart show. So I answered. I guess I should back up to more and say that, um This is the first time that I have ever done a radio program on 7 20 w G. N That had my name on it, Whether it's an oasis, arrest stop or travel plaza. It's the very first time now. I've been a guest. Before over the years, and I've years ago filled in for people who, uh, have the day off when Milt Rosenberg was still here. And I believe I was doing. I was doing a show for Spike. Spike. Adele was the morning guy. And I was on the air and Milt Rosenberg. Came into the studio. And said, Are you John Land? Decker? And I said Yes. Are you getting this on tape? Because this has got to go to Surat. So Milt Rosenberg comes into the studio and says, Are you John Land? Decker? And I say yes. And he said, I took sociology from your father at the University of Michigan. How about that, Bob? So It's not so far fetched to say that my father Has contributed to the programming here at 7 20. W G. M. Through the education of probably the smartest person that's ever been on the air here. Does that mean? I got a phone call? Oh, do I hold on now? This is first time I've ever been in this. Thing studio. Do I hit this button? What do I do? Bob. Hey, John. Oh, it's fun. It's Bob with a big B. Hey, Bob, uh, two things one. I don't like I totally agree with you More. Rosenberg. Yeah. You are the smartest man I've ever heard that unbelievable. Second, Yes. You need to get a tan during I need to get a what? Can Doreen a tangerine like the fruit? Yep. Why? I'm not tangerine. You need to write. Bob Surat, and then under it. John Lennon Crossbow Plaza and correct notice the record because he was on the whining today. No, I heard. I just heard. Yeah, we played the tape. No, No, he was writing. Someone stole harvest Tangerine. Oh, my God. Really? I didn't know that. Yes, Bob. Thank you. That is so cool. Send it back, like a little window. I'm gonna I'm gonna do it. We're going to get a tangerine. I'm bringing a tangerine tomorrow. I would do it. There's no question about it. Thanks, Bob. Thank you, Bob. You know what, As a matter of fact I'm not going to say who, but just let me say it was a rather high level executive. Of NeXstar media. Who encouraged me. To start a fight with Bob Surat. Um As God is my witness all never go hungry again. No, really. I'm telling you, that's exactly what.

"Is like a day without sunshine, Professor. Good afternoon. Good evening. How are you, sir? I'm doing great. But I gotta tell you, you got the best music. I love that song. Yeah, that's a great tune that's actually done by 100 different Chicago musicians, actors. Actress's celebrities, and they just put it up today to raise money for artists here in the city who aren't working because of Cove it and it's a terrific It's interesting to watch. It can hurt your eyes at times because there's so many contributors, but whoever produced this thing did a marvelous job and hopefully it raises some money. What a good purpose. It is looking at your column that I saw earlier this week. I want to hit on two major points today and I read. Write from it. We'll jump off this paragraph first. Most Americans think our nation's history and aspirations are good, sometimes noble, sometimes flawed, but not rotten to the core. We recognize our cruelty is such a slavery and Jim Crow. We want them taut. Not glossed over. But we do not think our republic was founded to perpetuate those cruelties. A lot of people now want to snc erase history. Well, I think a smarter way to go on. I'd like you to elaborate on this is to embrace it realized what was right. What was wrong and try to improve it as we go forward. Couldn't agree more. Um I was raised in Mississippi. During of, uh Last days of Jim Crow. But while I was in high school, there were all the huge fights over the civil rights bills and so forth. So, uh, these are issues that I thought about for a very long time that I remember a trip old miss, which I took a few years ago and near the center of the campus. It was always a statue of a Confederate soldier who represented of students who had gone from old miss, which you've probably been for 10 or 15 years before the civil war, and it's going off to fight for the Confederacy. And what struck me about the statue. When I When I went back to see it, John was that there was now a plaque beside it. That explained the, uh the problem of slavery and fighting for the Confederacy and so forth and even Mohr important, I would say. On the, uh, not too far away. There was a wonderful statue of James MEREDITH, who had desegregated the university personal risk and celebrating that, And I thought that the juxtaposition of the two with something that every student at old Miss could learn from. That is so I love that story, and I want to elaborate on that just a little bit because I re read Frederick Douglass's speech from 18 76. At the dedication of the Lincoln Emancipation. Monument, which now people want taken down, and he said that I don't like the look of it, but I'm paraphrasing, obviously, But he said, I would like to have the rest of the story told with additional monuments that being said now to another, Douglas What do you make of the University of Chicago, eliminating the plaque, and I think one other Recognition of our former senator Stephen Douglas, here in Illinois. Um, I saw that, Uh, people should know what the story is. There was a plaque in one of the university buildings at a stone. There was a university called the University of Chicago. Not related to the current university that existed at an earlier time and it had gone bankrupt or going out of business. For some reason it ended. And in for 20 or 30 years, there was no university and then a new one was formed using the same day and the old one had connections. They were not very direct. But there were some connections to people who were involved with it, who had family who owned slaves, and I think the university has is sensitive to being Accused of, uh, any of the fall of another university with which it really had no connection. Yeah, I get that. I see. I see that is different. It is I. There's a distinction there. You know, you're not trying to raise history. I admire your president because I believe he's the man that wrote, and there's a couple of years ago. It was a wonderful piece about we do not believe in safe spaces at the universe. Chicago If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen. Because we're going to discuss everything openly here of the universe. Chicago side Meyer that been very actively involved in that that a few that I think not only our democracy depends on but that's the way our justice system works. Remember, the prosecution presents a case, but you get to present your own case. Ah, two opposed of right and then a jury listens to it in listen to both sides. Sometimes they're more than two. But at least our system depends on a confrontation. If you were to go to your to the justice system in Continental Europe find justice system is based on Roman law. The judge decides everything, and it's not given up to a jury of your peers. So I think that there's a kind of Deep since in the Anglo Saxon tradition, and in our democracy that we're just better off if you can hear all kinds of arguments that casino Make a direct personal threat to injure you doesn't mean that can use a bullhorn next to your house to a butt with with those kind of reasonable restraints. We're just better off having a brisk discussion, and now we're being prevented from having it by people shaming us by My mom action oligarchs, ruling out the possibility of discussing things that they don't like. It's terrible. Well, I'm glad to have you home. I'm sure we'll discuss this again. Charles Lipson is a Professor down, John, Are you shutting? I am I am is I must call over my golf game. I'ma save time at the end of the show over my golf game, So I gotta give you bums Rush. I'm sorry. I'm going to give you a double bogey, my friend. Mr Lipson. Thank you very much for the years.

Yeah, I miss until you see there were two guys on Chicago radio that I have. I truly really missed to this day. Milt Rosenberg and Dick Buckley. Kind of different sides. Different sides of the same coin, But they're both so good. Oh, yeah, Charles. Thank you, sir. Have a good weekend. Wash your hands.

"Due month. Back at the broadcast cases in our brand new studio. The Paul and angel Harvey studio, and also we're working out of the art LeBow control. And just a couple of other historic moment, this brand new set of ours was donated many years ago to the museum by WGN radio. And this is the studio and I am sitting where the legendary radio hall of fame member, Wally Phillips sat in this chair. Bob Collins set in this chair, spike Odell extension seven twenty with the late Milt Rosenberg. Also used this studio. So this is a very memorable studio in the history of Chicago radio. But, again, the funding for much of it came from pollen angel Harvey and art LeBow provided the support from the control room. So again, all together we're making this available for. The where where we do this program from, and we're also making it available for radio stations around the country. So if their affiliates listening to this program, this evening would like to originate their show from Chicago at some point, certainly not on Sunday night between six and eight. Do let us to bring the show to Chicago. You can do it. And again, we're, we're literally right outside the, the radio hall of fame gallery at the museum, which will show to you in the next several weeks. But again, nice have you inaugurate as well as our guest this evening? Our brand new studio. I wanna talk about Iran. How, how can you not get to it when there's been discussions and alleged plans of one hundred twenty five thousand troops, which the president says is way too. Many too few rather, Jeannie, you are a military Europe. Captain, in the air force reserve, army reserves. Former and you have sons that serve this country and my reaction to you. My question to you is where do you come down on, on a run? I mean. You want to say obviously the first the first goal is deterrence, and that's a show force. And so that's the first step that, that President Trump is taking. And I think that's the appropriate step. He's going to the region. He's he doesn't want another Benghazi. So he's pulled out some of the ambassadorial staff. I, I think that's appropriate to the they from what I've read have real solid intelligence that Iran is up to something, and maybe not them specifically, but the satellites that they actually fund and give weapons to. So I think deterrence is obviously the first goal of the Trump administration and that anybody who says that he's leading this right into the path of a ground war. I think that is this hyperbolic, at this point, Michael Bower, which you're. I think of our politics event should be regime change. Okay. We should be doing everything possible. They have the I waiting people out the Belo's from their theory theocratic regime that being said, I think we want to go to another war. But I think the sanctions that we've imposed on man, have an extremely effective. And I think if they could be tightened, they should be tightened Christopher's. Ling. You know, Barack Obama actually imposed some pretty serious sanctions on Iran. And then they came to the table, and he relented and it was the Senator from Illinois, Mark Kirk at the time himself a United States navy reserve. Officer said, no. We've got to tighten those sanctions Mike Bauer saying tonight. And that's exactly right. And that's exactly what President Trump has done and the, the issue in the Middle East is without a doubt. The single most important security issue in the Middle East is the ongoing kleptocracy. These people are miscreants, they are abusing if it is not my place to say, as Christian, it appears to me that they were abusing their religious offices, and there's a lot of evidence to support that. And they've got some very well armed thugs who have also benefited from rock Obama's fiscal largesse. Okay. In the Iran, Ian revolutionary guard corps. And so we've got a malefactor in the middle between our friends in the Gulf, and our friend, India, and we need to. I think get them to different behavior. And if that ends up in regime change Hallelujah..

What the web show today was was different than any show ever done on this radio station, except when Milt Rosenberg did LSD nine hundred sixty. Got to go back to that as an experiment that was like a whole thing that that happened. Really really really if he was he was interviewing the mayor of New Mexico at the time when that happened that really happens that Ted. All right. Let's do this. Let's just coming back right now. I I would like to check in on things for Sola tapping in the newsroom at the top of the hour. Kim. Road. Donald Trump junior makes a deal to testify before the Senate intelligence committee. All right. That's that's going to be what that's going to be. All right. We're going to do that. We'll do traffic coming up in just a few minutes right now, we have una program.

We got back on the radio, and I can't tell if I'm having or I'm just having an exiled moment. I just don't know which one it is. But coming up in the program, I'm reading this now directly from the script zombie raccoons. What you need to know coming up in the six o'clock hour. All right. One of going to do here. Now. I I told her bosses I said, you know, when we when we start from the web, and that we had back to the radio. There is a transition period. There is it does need to get affected. We need some time to actually move back into the real broadcast moment, especially after what has happened. I would like to say that I do. Now believe the CD oil has has incredible. Effect on an ability to relax. That's all. I'm gonna say. And it makes Kevin just start giggling. Which is sort of its own problem. Okay. Lawrence. Did you a favor because we're all in the studio now to go back to get your traffic. So we can do your traffic transition back into what we're doing traffic right ago. I don't have it on me that don't just bring the traffic with me every should. So go back there and get that. And then we'll wait for you to get back into position. And then we'll do the traffic, and then we'll come back, and we'll start the show in earnest, and I'll try to explain to our bosses. Exactly what happened and why why Kevin's expense report? Cheap. This month is going to have all these different things that he just bought at a at a. Like, a mini mart and many Mark. He has expense. Cool ranch. Doritos? Yes. All right. And if people are like, what am I listening to? I don't know what the hell this is what what is this WGN? What are they doing? All right. So are we stalling to get Lauren? Time. Hand up your time around slowly handing candied everybody. That's what we're doing. We're just doing a little bit of stalling. Also, if you missed earlier what we talked to Crain's Chicago visits about how this all started. That is that was weird. We were talking to Crain's Chicago business about the recreational marijuana Bill. It's apparently going through a bunch of different iterations. It's hitting a little bit of a snag because of the growing piece of it all five plants per adult per household seems that there's some opposition over that. But they only have a few weeks for this legislative session. And we had thought that there would be some kind of recreational marijuana Bill passed it's five hundred and fifty two pages. So who can read all know who wrote that and that seems like enough for somebody to find something they don't like. But who knows pretty close? We should know pretty soon. If it passes are not, right. But there's a lot of the a lot of stuff out of it. Because growing in your house, and your bathtub and stuff, you're gonna have five plants and people are just gonna be selling it to their neighbors. And they thought that was going to be a problem. They don't have a license to do it who's authorized to sell it or not it just gets to be a little difficult to police. All right. So they're trying to retool the Bill with the hopes that they'll get the support. And the seems as they may have the support but not much time to get past. All right, right. Lauren. To have the WGN traffic in front of you do shortened version for him.

"Moment on extension seven twenty. I'm beyond thrilled to be back in the host chair tonight. This is amazing. I cannot wait to get reacquainted with all my old friends and listeners from the download days, but to be tasked with the reboot of extension. Seven twenty dream, come true. Dr Milt Rosenberg was a legendary broadcaster in Chicago and his ability to conduct intelligent and in-depth interviews is still unmatched. I can't replace a legend. I can honor him by trying my best each and every night. But there is one and only one only Milt Rosenberg. I recently got a nice letter from Robert Henley. You may be familiar with Bob Henley. He was the program manager at WGN back in the sixties. He gave me some great info on the history of extension. Seven twenty. He said the first show was may six thousand nine hundred sixty eight. How? Six nine thousand nine hundred sixty eight Jack Rick house was the host and he interviewed Leo Durocher. The manager of the Chicago Cubs. Think about that may six thousand nine hundred sixty eight just mere months before the democratic national convention riots, Donna grand park and just a month after the death of Martin Luther King. Other hosts of extension seven twenty included Norman Ross and Dan price, of course, meal Rosenberg milta- ended up hosting the show for over four decades. The show was produced by Bruce Dumont at the beginning and legend himself. It's amazing. These names to me the secret of extension seven twenty is in the name. We know it's seven twenty is right. The fifty thousand watt blowtorch heard throughout the midwest. But Pete Nye pizza Herman. And I we hope to see this show as an extension of that brand past the walls of the studio extending past their comfort zone to talk about diverse issues with people with diverse backgrounds. To keep pushing further and further trying new things while still honoring the past. Yes. There will be long-form interviews, call ins and live performances just like the old extension seven twenty, but it will be something new an extension if you will. And at the end of the day. I can promise that this show will will work hard. We'll be prepared. We'll be open minded, and we'll be fair. In other words, I can promise this show to be seven twenty WGN one familiar foists to extension seven twenty is. Andrea darlas. Hi, justin. Who's with us where the show and in the newsroom.

So it is it is an honor and a pleasure to work with you on this program. Andrea, and you, of course, spent time with Milt Rosenberg and extension seven twenty. What does that mean? What does extension seven twenty? Meaning you honestly, just an I go back twenty. I'll be here twenty one years in April. So I go back twenty one years because when I first started here, I was a freelance anchor and that was working the night shift. So that was nineteen late nineteen Ninety-seven November of ninety seven. And then I worked with spike Odell. And then went back when I was hired full time in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and I was the news anchor for sports central with. Dave Kaplan, Tom Waddle and Milt Rosenberg how about that. So I was his news anchor from one thousand nine hundred ninety eight until two thousand five and then in two thousand five I addition for and got the role of the morning anchor with spike Odell, that's amazing Adriano eight years with mill you spent eight years. With mill road. David an extension seven twenty I could just imagine being in the room and being privy to the conversations that were being had. But when you think of that show, what do you think of what are the things that that you want out of an extension seven twenty reboot? I would. I just was amazed about was not only melts intelligence, but his ability to speak on any subject off the cuff. I mean, he did his prep and his research and his work. And he would he listened to classical music in his office, which was beca Tribune tower. Of course in our offices were on the first floor at the time, and he was kind of in a back corner and his office was from floor to ceiling with books, and he'd always be claiming playing classical music, and if I would have to go back and ask him something about the guests. I'd knock on the door. And at one point he said, my dear. You don't have to knock you can just come in. And it was about two or three years of working with Justin and I walked in. And I just his ability to speak on he had a show one night. And I'm not kidding in. This will always stick with me and resonate with me. His first hour he talked about ancient Minoan Minoan civilization. So, of course, the democracy in the founding of of Greek culture. So that interested me migrate background. And then an hour later. He was talking about a brand new show making its debut in the late nineties called sex in the city, and he'd boom just and he switched to the next. And there was a discussion about sex in the city in modern day. Just it was wonderful just his ability in the spectrum of his intelligence never cease to amaze. Well, it makes it really does. We're thrilled to work with you, especially having been a part of the original extension seven twenty and having you on the news desk is a pleasure. And I'm looking forward to working with you. Drew me to Justin. And I'm really looking forward to you hitting a lot of it. I know you've been doing so much prep so much work over the past few weeks and planning for this. And I'm looking forward to being a native Chicagoan myself, you hitting all the neighborhoods and talking about issues affecting our neighborhoods in our communities, and our people and our residents feel like it'd be a lot of fun. I'm already deficient. I don't have much to say about ancient Greek civilization. Okay. No. We'll hit the Logan square and buck the neighborhoods. All right. So that's all coming up.

"So the daughter Livia Jade, not breaking down DNA in the basement. She's a pretty girl who had managed to find a million or two million, followers and had deals with Amazon and Sephora and other things that's a career. Now, it is. I don't know that she needed to go to school. So that's why I keep coming back to the same thing. Parents want to be able to go to the party some parents want to be able to go to the party, and what are your kids doing on? My kids are at USC. They want to be able to tell that story. Well, I mean, look you just look back now and think you made this decision, but the kids eighteen years old. They absolutely knew what was happening and now for the rest of their life. The first thing that comes up on Google about them is going to be this thing, you have no one's ever gonna think anything differently Belen daughter a felon Sun Valley. I mean, it's you know, it's heartbreaking. But we were just talking in the break. There's eighteen year olds going off to fight the gifts stand. So I mean, it's hard to really feel like out now this poor kid has made their life terrible. They made a choice, and it was a bad one. What about the idea that private schools that all pass themselves off as not for profit institutions engaged in these scams? Donate a complete Proctor logical exam top to bottom financially. Well, I mean, look if if you're getting a tax benefit from the government, then you gotta make an even playing field and private schools have always been a separate market. But you know, I mean, that's it's bananas to me that that they can go on and act like these rules, don't apply to them and donations. Let people get in and. It's one thing to to be an athlete and a student athlete. It's another thing to have a rich. And then it's another thing to commit fraud. So are going on at the best institutions in the country. Now sports we've known this has gone on sports forever. But I think one of the reasons this has resonated with people is because this is the quote regular student population. Where slots were taken away from regular kids. So you got some kid from a middle class family who's busted his or her. But you know, who knocked out twenty hundred twenty one hundred twenty two hundred on the SAT's, and they didn't get in. Because of Livia Jade made the crew team. I'd be upset to also you want to say, your life's your kids can have a great life. Absolutely. Don't worry about it so much your kids can have a great life, regardless of where they went to school because you're doing great, and you're going to be able to help have you ever met an adult who had the full four year college experience. It went. Oh it sucked. Most people go. No, my college. Experience was great. I went to what a great town because it's such amazing four years. Your life ca times. Well, who knows I mean, they've taken something wonderful and made it not so, but maybe it makes people change think about this stuff. So what are you doing the meeting at the lifetime? You know, if you're Lori Loughlin start player. She's you're eighteen Goto. I think you say how do we make movie about the college scandal? Right. It makes sense. But my wrong about this. I don't see a lot of lifetime films, but the bad guy or the bad girl on lifetime films. Never all that evil. Are they well mostly because I think if you made the lifetime movie, what would happen is you would find out later that that she was like grew up in the town of the college, and she had to be a waitress in the cafeteria and all her life expired, and so then you, you know, we have a warm it would have a warm ending the character arc of someone who made a mistake. Right. But they they shouldn't have done. But it was for the right reasons. I mean, I think when we look at this stuff these guys committed a crime, and they're getting tons of the benefit of the doubt. They they have money. They get on. Jail. They don't have to wait. They'll get great lawyers. Lots of people make stupid mistakes, and they don't have those benefits and they end up sitting in county jail or some other where you know, and not that that's something to aspire to. It's just it's easier to feel sorry for these people because we feel like we know them a little bit. Because they've been in your living room. What if you're a professor or a part time professor, and you're making you're making a lot of money and seventy knocks on your door and says, I can get two hundred fifty thousand dollars you got to move. This pile of papers from here over here. I think do I want to be employed for the rest of my life. I mean, it's a real test of character. Yeah. That was a test for these kids I'm gonna fly to LA and put you in a room, and you're going to take a test. And there's going to be somebody there looking at all of your answers. Don't think that's weird. And I. And I. Daddy. It's probably hard for kids to push back on their parents. But it's also, you know, it's like a lot of things in life. I if you take the easy, there's the hard right in these Iran, and no matter where you are. Economically. Dave what's going to happen to that coach that took? I think it was a half million dollars. But put it back into the program at the school. Do you know the story is a coach in the middle of this scandal? Who got I don't several hundred thousand dollars and took the money, but didn't keep the money. Right. All the money. But then to alleviate his guilt or something. He put some of it back in school. Yeah. Right now, he's trying to to stay on right and trying to keep his he's asking that he be allowed to coach. So that seems like a hard one. Because if you're the trustees, you go will you kept some of them, how about some, you know, NC double A, recruit takes a dinner or something from a recruiter and gets totally bounced out of the program, which could be a very honest mistake. That's what they've the NCWA rules the arcane NCWA rules are insane. Those kids need a union. I that is that is for media NCWA when it comes to men's basketball and football in these highly profitable sports, the idea that these young people get nothing long-term. They're not even guaranteed a full four years college. I mean that is I am a coach recruited you. They get you to go to that school can leave at any time because he's offered multi million dollars to go somewhere else. He's bonus on you coming and choosing and you playing and then he can, you know, take that and leave when that kid from northwestern was that football player was pushing on the the union issue. I think that's the only way to to move the needle with the NCWA can fix. All this. Justin kaufman. Doesn't governor standing by? I guess he's enjoying getting up late now. Good morning. Good morning. I want to be the first to say happy birthday. Steve. Thank you very much. I appreciate that. I'm going to put you in a way back machine and get that done. Yeah. It's not today. I thought it was today. Now, actually you were one of the first people to texts. So that was nice of you. I appreciate that. That's the world we live in now, the text happy birthday. Twin so long. I mean, the last show it's Friday, it feels like it was five years ago. You still have you still have your goatee, Dave? I haven't seen you in so long. Yeah. Yeah. Harry's razor we're looking forward to a reunion party the memo Goffin tonight will have his first show in the relaunch of extension. Seven twenty the show made famous by Milt Rosenberg for all those years. No pressure on you, pal. It's fun because you know, just going through the archives tapes and listening to Bill, and you know, that show was launched in may of nineteen sixty eight and Iran to the beginning of this decade and note was the host for almost the entirety of it. There were a couple of hosts right at the beginning that did like maybe for a very short stint before milk over. It's tremendous to see the breath and the and the and just the overall canon of work to do that show in you know, every single day and every single night and it's daunting to look at him. What a legend to be able to do that. There's no way I could fill the shoes. For me. I'm just gonna put tapes of Milton. That quite a highlighter to guest tonight, Alex, Scott, which is my guess, he's being where he's the author of un-american summer life and death in Chicago, which is a new book just really outstanding. It's a it's a book about he followed that families, and and people on the south side of Chicago west side, Chicago in the summer twenty and you know, obviously if focuses on on gun violence, but what it does is. It's less about the victims of gun violence and more about the people left behind, and it's it's it's sort of a look at what they call complex loss. It's it's more than PTSD. It's it's what happens to families survivors too. Sometimes the shooter's cells, and and just the impact of violence and trauma. Communities in Alex's award winning journalists. He's not so much for the city. He did their children here, which was a great book in the early nineties about public housing projects. And he's just been a tremendous journalist, and this is his new work. So we're talk with him. Also Keenan Thompson from SNL will be. Yes. Yeah. Good stuff. Yeah. And a lot of good. You know, I did the show at night the download for a long time. So I know the listeners there, and I know the I know the the nighttime feel and it's starting to get back at it and take some of the stuff that I learned from that show and also some of the stuff and learning from an extensive seven twenty and create something new. I'd say it's an extension of extension seven twenty you. Well, Steve did there. I did see what you did there and the foreign let you go. Is there a roadmap Dominy times? We're going to be able to hear you because with baseball. It gets weird. Yeah. Baseball's going to get weird. So I'm kind of approaching it like a weekly show even daily show. It's every night. But the White Sox, of course, play a lot of baseball games in summer. So I'm preempted when the White Sox are are playing. But I'm approaching it like, I know I have kids feels like it's two or three shows a week. And I'm approaching it like a weekly show, which gives Pete Nye a little bit more time to think about what we want to put on a show how the segments connect to go out and sealed and do some stuff that to bring some audience and production to the show that we couldn't do a daily show. So in a way, it makes the product a little bit more sustaining having the ability to think of it that way as opposed to as you know, every single day where where you're just kind of in the meat grinder, the coal mining that we do every morning here. That's right. Oh, how do we do it your wardrobe change at all because it's nights you wear. More of a club shirt, maybe unbuttoned to the waist. It's a club shirt, and then a tweed jacket. It's all tweed. Twenty two cents. Sometimes it's a it's a throwback to tweet. It's a it's a little bit of tweed pants. It's tweed shirt. You have a plight. I gotta get a pi I'm gonna go to the it's a vape pen twenty nineteen. There's no more. That's right. You're upgrading the look. Right, man. Are you going to be great at buddy? I appreciate it. Great to talk to you guys. All right. Got Justin Kaufman. Take care..

"But in two thousand thirteen this was the summer that then police superintendent Kerry McCarthy stood up in front of the com stat and talked about how they're winning the CNN show. Chicago land was happening at that time. This was the year Chicago's turning it around. And that's when this book takes place. That's when the story he collected the stories, and it is I look at what has happened since in two thousand sixteen which was what the deadliest summer deadliest year on record or at least decades and decades in Chicago history. So whatever they were doing in two thousand thirteen it didn't sustain so you interviewed him you play back that conversation is really good part of your show Friday night. I don't know if you know this. But that's when the show debuts it's called an American summer by Alex cutlets? Justin Kaufman in our studio who you've heard for months and months and months now years how long have you been a couple years with Steve Cochran morning just under a year under year. So about a year missed his birthday today's his birthday. And I was like it's so funny. Like last day was Steve was Friday. And then I come in today, and there's all this cake and family was for you. It's having fun, and they're just birthday birthday because you're leaving that they thought I it was a celebration of my departure. So it was a birthday. But then I was like, oh, man. All of us didn't have to get a president. I guess not on the show anymore. It's not that you or Andrea or Patti Vasquez have not taken over evenings on our radio station. But when I think back to when Milt Rosenberg did it extension seven twenty, and that's the name that you guys are going to bring back, which I think is brilliant, which is not to say it will be that show. But I think that's a client can't be right. But that's kind of shows that really can live well in that space is our Todd badly, but say. I'm really glad that you've got that slot. Thank you, John. I think that you will have a lot of fun with it. I think he'll be a perfect fit for that spot. I liked the night. I did the download there for a couple of years. I I understand the the nighttime audience, and frankly, there's more room to spread out. That's not a knock on any other show. The other day parts have much more business. I was gonna say. We've had other people do that shift when we think back at extension seven twenty any of us who ever filled in for milk back in the day. Love the idea of sitting down with a few commercial breaks less things to do and really grappling with some channel ask you because tomorrow night, one of my first questions to our audience, and and to some of the guesses what does extension seven twenty mean to you. Yeah. It means really smart conversation. It means. Going to topics and places that you wouldn't middays on WGN. You have the luxury of exploring black holes in space or some minutia of politics that is fascinating. But isn't broad enough to cover in the eight minutes. I have here. Good answer. So I love all of that. I don't know. What about you? Yeah. I'm really playing with the with the word extension. I I obviously thrilled beyond belief and the legend of Milt Rosenberg. And that show is not lost on me. I mean, if you're talking though, that's a that's a those are big shoes to fill in a bother some of his catchphrases, which I'm trying. I'm trying not some of that stuff. You know? It's funny because I've had a lot of people say that to me are you going to say this you can do this. And I'm like, I don't know. I don't want to be I, you know, such a huge huge legend in this town. I would like to now I'm failing, but he would sign off each evening with it wasn't a vigil founder do something like that. But if you said give me your militarisms, it would be fun just to hear what our audience remembers about that. And then I think you should promise to never use them. Tomorrow night will be the last of these phrases because while they do live in our hearts, it's time to turn to a new chapter. Yeah. And that'll be Justin Kaufman. Tomorrow night, seven to eleven seven to ten seven to ten. It will always be seventy seven to ten when there's no sports. Yeah. Get preempted sometimes but tomorrow night. So you'll be on the stream when you're preempted. Do you know, I don't think so because baseball they're still working getting baseball on that stream. Okay. Okay. Now, I want to hear about the, you know, they wanna hear the White Sox went one hundred ten games. Well, see you're doing fiction, then evidently? Could you see a buddy? Thank you for having me. Nice to hear you in the mornings and really anxious for you in the evenings. Justin kaufman. Hey extension. Seven twenty is back about that. Let's pause. Here is one of the story. I want to run by you. This is something that you will enjoy viewing the options you have these days in. I'm.

"Jennings of the WGN radio newsroom. And these are the stories that matter on seven twenty WGN. Welcome back to nocturnal journal on WGN. We okay there. And now, we're gonna talk I wanted to kind of talk about with got our panel sidekick, John Hughes tonight. All the way up from Louisville and our zipper masters, if a player Kurt von Eck, Roth pronouncing that right? His wife Megan beautiful job on those vocals, and our friend. Jeff cuffs Kaczynski. And. Well, let's let's just start at ground zero before we get into George Flynn. I know you through my brother. Yeah. Doug, and I've seen you perform so talk about that that I mean, you all kind of different types of music, we're gonna get to George Flynn at gig tomorrow. But talk about what you're doing. Well, I met Doug along time ago. And I started playing with his bands. And I I did a lotta overdubbed on his albums Nashville. I used to fax cello charts and horn charts down in Nashville before there was Email and they end up on his records. And I remember playing with Doug at the bottom line in New York City for a week and playing in Philadelphia touring with keep what did you play? I played a multi instruments percussion. Keyboards piano and accordion, sometimes even and I wrote a lot of scores for his like overdose on his albums. Like, I scored out the cello parts, we overdubbed like five or six cello. Hs five or six horns. Yeah. So I've known him a long time. And he he actually recorded some of his records in my basement when I had a studio in my basement before my sons were born. Yeah, we go back pretty far. How would you describe the type of music you were doing Doug? I'd say it was like all contry or like experimental country. A lot of the bands. I played in came out of like, he's mentioned Phyllis as musical. Yeah. I mean before it was a rock club. It was a polka bar in the fifties. And I think my dad used to play they're like, you know, in early sixties, and I played there when I was in my teens and twenties playing in punk bands, and grunge bands and stuff like that, John. There's we've had them on show. Hey Clem on the show before. And I really believe there's an I don't maybe it's true and in clubs that you've seen in Louisville or Long Beach. But I really do think there's a defying sounding always comes out at the came out of fellas and you're probably better at explaining that to happen. I wanna say it was dance folk he country urban. I'm picking we we all have sold American, right, stump. The host Steve Dawson's old thing talk about what that vibe was like there, and it was pretty wide open. You could experiment. Yeah. We could experiment, and we, you know, I remember opening up for sold American recording Scott Tuma who is a guitarist in that band. And and just we would try a lot of things like just slowing down country or like playing playing blues but with. Rock aesthetic, and how much does it just the environment. You're in how much does it have to do with it? Just the atmosphere of the place with the kind of sound that came out of it. I just think it was just easy. You know, Clem Clem made it easy. I'm still around the is cutting come in and just kind of encouraged us to to try things out. And and. Some of my first gigs were at Phyllis, I used to be polish Broadway. And there were like fifty polka little Wally played on there. Really the last place still got some original wallpaper right up there. And I went to one of those. We taken. Very important. Chicago. So new music. How do you define all you guys? How do you define new music? Well for me, it's. I'm a composer and music theorist. So my main interests are in the new and the avant-garde and and since I was a graduate student. This is going back to the early nineties. I've been doing Sunday afternoon matinee concerts with we call it Inc. Still wet music and tomorrow, we'll have another matinee and every. Green green forty eight to north Broadway. Correct. Right right off the Lawrence red line. Stop and. We've been doing concerts there for almost thirty years. George Flynn is the leader of the group, and and every January we do a birthday celebration for him, and he'll be eighty one. I think this month, and he'll be there a performing new music, and they'll be eleven or twelve composers on the same Bill, myself included, and you guys will be there will be there. I didn't know that. So he came into that they'll be playing playing they'll be playing as people arrive and probably have a little set as the audience settles and we differ music. Yeah. And also in the intermission, really liked the cocktail hour. Yeah, we played. So I can play all these cocktail. This. Now listeners, you know, who George Flynn is there's a YouTube clip of him saying now, he's avant garde classical which means no one's interested in what I play. So what does he do? And how how how would you describe his music? And then how does it connect to just say somebody just walking into the green mill for the first time tomorrow? Well, he's in a kind of classic composer. He's a professor emeritus depaul that's where I studied with him. And he was working with John cage working with Morton Feldman in New York. And also. Constantly composing, the guardian in London called his music, some of the most violent piano music, ever written. Wow. So he writes, very severe. Avangard? It's the opposite of commercial music. You might say it's also very influenced by composers like Messiaen and Barrio and. He's he's I think he's kind of a brilliant composer. He's recorded many records he recorded for Dr. Dr records, which was a subsidiary of Atlantic records, and he is he's a champion of new music. He always has been a supporter of young composers. So what time does it start tomorrow at two pm, two o'clock. It goes on for how long till four two four. Oh, wait a minute. How many people you have in their twelve twelve in two hours mash up really? Yeah. It's usually we have a lot of music and many of the pieces are not very long. So twelve sounds like a lot of composers. But a lot of the pieces are five minutes or ten minutes long. And you said you do this. How often do you do this tomorrow is like a birthday thing? He do three concerts a year, usually, and I I do the last Sunday and lactobacillus so I do a kind of Halloween concert than we have George's birthday concert, which is tomorrow and then Amy word. So I think we'll be there tomorrow. She usually does something in the spring for everybody here. How does this music that we're talking about the new music? Maybe what George does how does that influence other types of music. You do. Well, I guess I do all his John RAs. I I don't separate you know, like. I do pop music. I do rock I do jazz. Do classical I last night Evans, playing chamber music and opera and Hamburg. Yeah. It was that that was that was quite a while ago. But I did do a opera collaboration and in Europe, and that I had written and collaborated on so yeah. Wow. I feel like Dan, I feel like Milt Rosenberg. Pretty serious. Did you remember him WGN very heavy same same thing for you guys? I mean other types I didn't ask you that other types of music you play or sing this is it. Zither? Music music and. So so yeah. Artistic director could foundation what was that? That was a recording company that I had with Eric Markowitz who Doug guitarist for Doug. And and he and I. The band's I started out with where with Eric. We had a band called nothing, and we played it Phillips's. And then we became Billy pilgrim. She was a name we borrowed from Kurt Vonnegut novel. We actually asked Kurt von gets permission to use the name Billy pilgrim in here. He approved it and then a band from LA. I'm bought the name from us. And we got a significant sum from the lawyers, and we told Kurt Vonnegut about it. And he just told us to keep the money. So we use the money to make another record. And then we change her name to Agatha. We had many names we've made many albums with. They were. Not commercially successful. That actually leads to my next question. John you covered music. I think for awhile Louisville. So what is the muse for what you do? I mean, I just find it so unique and we've interviewed people and there's been people on the show. I want to write a poppet for radio. I wanna I wanna to or what is the muse that makes you explore these little unknown pockets of music. You know, I think it's fascinating you stay true to that. You mean to like church, try new things. All right. That's another way of putting it. Yeah. I mean, I just feel like. Sense of freedom that I could do whatever I want as the musician. So that that's something. I hold onto. And I think it's it's kinda rare around the world, and I think being an American composer. I I can do whatever I want, and I don't have to fear anything, Doug. And I've talked about this. And again, I've talked about this other guests you find a little more freedom of expression in Europe. You know? I mean, I know it's true song rising. I know it's true soul music. Or not. I don't think. So I think that were a lot. That's a tough question. I guess. We have more eclecticism, and and we teach eclecticism in a way we teach our students that they shouldn't copy anyone else, and they should find their own path. And he shouldn't compare yourself to anyone else. So the creative freedom is what what drives me. So Kurt Megan say you wanted to record a third album. Maybe you have maybe you're thinking about thinking. Yeah. So what's the process like how do you sell somebody on this? Well, we have to sell each other on the idea. We've got one person..
