Wake up Chicago's number one morning breaking show. I am the dashing Jack Russo. Across from me is my dazzling partner in crime. Maggie Quinn. Did your voices crack? What's happening? Are you finally hitting puberty? Live on the air? Oh, what a set up for a movie. 7 20, WGN. John Land Decker at 8 49. Tom Hush is going to be joining us on this particular movie review. Time, aren't you? Yeah, OK. Yeah. So Alex. Have you seen midnight at the Magnolia? I have not. Actually, I'm sorry. Well, then, with tables were turned will tell you instead of you telling us, so there's this movie on that flicks. It's called Midnight at the Magnolia. And it is set in the city of Chicago. Around, eh? Morning show team. Male and female who, as you could tell kid, it's and have a great time talk of those wacky morning radio things at one another. And they work it someplace cold. 98.8 FM. The breeze wake up with Jack and Maggie and their slogan is something like Don't get blown away or whatever every what is it? Time to remember with their slogan is I little? I remember so little of this movie. I can't even explain this. I remember. I remember I made I took notes. Took notes in between. I rolls just tried to try to stay on top of it. All right. So this movie Although it says it's Chicago. I'm pretty sure it was all done, at least for maybe except a couple of exterior shots in Canada because every actor in this movie is from Canada. And it's a sort of, uh, it looks like A Calculated attempt to recreate Ah Hallmark. Channel film. Only not only not on Hallmark. Did you get that impression time? But you know, it's a bunch of white people walking around laughing a lot talking about the holidays and you finally see an African American is a bartender. There's this ridiculous music in the background. Everybody is smiling and laughing and talking to each other. Like 98% of the time. You can tell all of these people were in community theater before they got pulled up to the big leagues. No, you can't know that. No, it is. Yes, you can. I swear it's like it's like double a minor league, watching them try to act. Really? Really. I didn't think it was that bad. There were moments. Especially this This girl, Maggie, or whatever co host of the morning show host this morning show. Yeah, e don't know. There was just this level of Yes, I read Shakespeare once in high school, and I think I understood it. So here's the plot poison girls. These two, Jack and Maggie had known each other all their lives, and they've grown up together because their families were so close. In fact, their fathers are co owners of a jazz club. Called the bag No, yah and well, everyone thinks that they should get together, but they never have because they have other relationships until Something happens. Offer may come through from satellite radio. E. I'm curious is sadly, I never understood when watching this is satellite radio, The good guy or the bad guy in this scenario, little surprise because they're both. I think satellite radio, and this is supposedly some sort of goal where their show is gonna go nationwide. Now, anyway, so they've known each other since they were little. Their fathers on this call on this jazz club called the Magnolia. And they have achieved a local variety is duo in the morning. And so, you know. Here's the deal. Are they gonna fall in love at the end? For real After they've been together since childhood. Will they? Will they not? That's the question. Yes. Go ahead. Take a wild stab. Do you think they do or don't come on. Come on, everybody. Well, they say they say they do They do they do Indeed it is amazing. They do fall for each other at the end, And you know, I'm sorry to give it away and Spoiler alert, But the movie's already spoiled and they they had and they got Oh, wait. Oh, this is very important plot development. So back in high school. This guy wrote a song for Jack wrote a song. For for Maggie and Let her name. Which one? What's What is your name again?

"Tom Hush, with one of the worst takes I've ever heard. By the way. Kim Ng, who is now the general manager of the Miami Marlins, First Woman ever be a general manager in baseball. I'm just looking through Twitter here. The University of Chicago graduate coming, says she has been treated with kid gloves since being named Assistant GM with the Yankees. People used to apologize for swearing in front of me until they realized I probably swear more than them. That's the way that you just You know what I got to kind of be one of the baseball dudes and swearing is Something that both genders should do. Respectfully, baby. I'm not exactly sure I'm going that but any rate congratulations to come with. That was a cool story today, and I really appreciated Rachel coming on. She was awesome to talk to Rachel folding. With the Syrian 7 20, w G and Dave player coming up at the top of the hour, so the argument during the break Was. I got talking about the pizza. So I ordered peak wads for my pick up on the way home did get a salad on the healthy side for 1st 1st darker and then I got a sweet pie coming at me. Little pepperoni with spinach, little jalapeno. It's gonna be good night and a good lunch tomorrow. But so then, Tom, I was just screaming at me. You know, it's most underrated Bates ever into Chicago pizza and oven grinder, which is like my I love the oven grinder. But then you're screaming at me that nothing is worth two hours waiting outside on Clark Street, and I'm like Hush. Just settle down. Have a cocktail. Relax, to talk to talk to your wife Get get deep on something That's that's part of the deal there. Apologize away. Hold on second thought I'm sorry. Apologize? No, I'm not gonna apologize. One. You should apologize to me because that was a disrespectful impersonation. You made the face. You tried that you tried to do the time, much thing and I'm a little insulted. Let's get that out of the way. And even all that I did that. I do apologize if I made the hush face. I don't even know what those faces, but you don't want to know what those faces. But number two I get it. It's a Chicago institution. It's quote unquote. Iconic P is a great place to take. People if they've never been to the city before, is very unique. But I'm guessing if you lived in Carbondale and you came to the city, you might have gone there. So probably it's probably does apply. Not just going to say, you know, it's all over our WGN listening map. If my if my mother was coming to town, I might try to get into Chicago pizza. It's a good place. I'm saying on an average dining experience on average dining experience where my going that I'm gonna that I want to wait 2.5 hours just to get table nowhere Nowhere and I get it. They're keeping the original kind of tavern thing alive. That's super cool, but glass of wine and have a have a have a heart. That's not happening because you're sitting in there for 2.5 hours. Your your butts, butts, doughnuts with everybody and you know it is miserable. It is a little tight in there, but that's why you go in the summertime and you sit on this. Steps and you experience the the oven grinder. It's the shit's an institution. It's It's something that I'm looking forward to after. That's a topic that I'm on next Friday night on, of course happened, I'll be coming up on Tuesday. Bears are playing. Monday night against Minnesota, which is really interesting by the way the Bears air at home playing the Vikings, who have the worst record and they're an underdog in Vegas. I find that interesting is people are just pumping on Chicago as far as the football team is concerned, but That's a I think that's just the kind of a fun thing to think about. What are you most looking forward to after whenever the pandemic is over, Like what? Is the first thing that you really want to run out and do and for me sports guy here like I'm watching these clips of different highlights from whatever baseball games, Basketball games tennis matches. I'm thinking Ah! Really, really, really do miss the crowd. I just do. I missed like like this Northwestern basketball season. I've been doing wildcat halftime for I don't know how many years The band. The energy in there just it makes you I'm a little weird that way that I get borderline emotional. When I hear the band plain, I just love it. And we don't have that right now. Not the end of the world. I'm not trying to be Johnny complain, but this thing about the things that I would Would really enjoy. And now what really does hurt Please. For me, Uh, Wherever you go. You got to come back. You gotta quarantine. So if you go on a five day vacation, it's really like a 19 day vacation going to work If you have any integrity about it, so like no vacation, Okay, which is not great. Alright, final time out. Liar Coming up. 7 20, WGN Total wine and more is a wonderland to.

Another daytime ballgame for our white socks. On the north side. The Cubs dropped the first game. They did not look good against the Marlins, so they need to get it back together tomorrow. Yu Darvish will be on the mound for them. So we'll see if they can rebound talking a little bit about what we grew up with here in Chicago. And what you remember about commercials in the time. Let's go to Dave on 7 20 w Jen. Hey, Dave, How are you? Great. How are you doing? Great tonight. What's going on? One for when you talked about the magic, a sign that was at the side of the expressway that expressway neon went up and down 1994. And I remember the kid coming in from Higgins rose from the Northwest suburbs because we moved out this way after the baby boomer generation had to get to the suburbs and Out. Around 72 or what 90 going into Chicago was a calm neon sign. That said Nicky Chevrolet. Okay, that was like a landmark. And that commercial that radio commercial that everybody heard when life it Mickey, Mickey, Mickey, Mickey Mickey Chevrolet with the backward K. You remember that? I don't I don't remember that one. Wow. How old he well, I'm going to be 50 and another year. So like my memories of commercials would probably start. Maybe if you released it like 77. Yeah. Yeah. So there'll be a lot of people that remember that jingle. Remember that Signed and a Northwest suburban landmark going into the city to see family that still lives there, sir. Sure. Great memory. Thanks so much for checking in, Dave, we appreciate it. You have a great night. Let's go to another day of online to Hey, Dave. How are you, man? I can't disagree with another, Dave. I thought I thought the magic line was that it was a big set of lips if I remember. Yeah, yeah. He was talking about something else. Yeah. Eisenhower. Well, I think there might have been more than one. I don't know. Like there was only one possibly just felt the one there pop to my words. Harish parlor. You're saying import dealer in Elk Grove? Yeah, he would always sing rock a bye, My baby. Very smaller. The thing import dealer. Yeah, there were some that does ring a bell. I do remember the thank you so much Dave through into 981 72 100. Other things that pop to mind is. These guys are saying that our Ziebart ads and Rusty Jones now my producer, Tom Hush was a young man here. He has no idea what Rusty Jones's I'm guessing. Not not a clear. You never heard it because it sounds like a guy that lives underneath an underpass. It might be now because Rusty so you used to. It used to be a big upset was you had to get the rust proofing on the car. I don't know what the technology is now that that doesn't happen that we don't have to get our cars Russ proofed anymore, and I know very few people that wax cars themselves. I don't feel like we're quite is concerned. Don't know if that's because the plastic concept cars these days or what happened that that became automatic. But you have to get the Rusty Jones. You get a little sticker on your back window on the Oldsmobile that had a picture of Rusty Jones, who had red hair and there were commercials that ended with hello, Rusty Jones. Goodbye, Rusty car. And you know, it was a big deal. And Ziebart, I think also was rust protection. I don't remember that 100% for sure. But the other thing I really remember from my youth and growing up going to Cubs games on the North side back when Wrigley Field was a very different place.

"I'd actually had cats and the question to you know, I think I have no feeling, Steve. So I think I know they do it. They did it and people with cats and our angry but they know I'm teasing. I always tease you about cats. You do, but we know that they're built. Their brains are essentially don't like ours. There. They have the same, you know, so years and years ago if someone said the dogs have feelings and people out yellow. That's crazy. Dog owners have known for hundreds of years, but that's not true course, their dogs, their feelings, and we now know not my opinion. We know Just by looking at the science, the chemistry of all this but their own. They're neurotransmitters, which work identical to ours about the same as ours. So they do have feelings. Then I not feel the same way we do. They certainly don't express it the same way they are. Dogs were not. However, they really do have feeling the other things that the other thing that we know with cats. But even dogs much more self. They instantly take up on how we feel. We don't even understand all the way. In which they do this. So one example. I can give you a personal example. My wife comes home. We're on the floor of our condo building. We park in the back. We have a very old nice historic building. Long hallway, so very long unit. So, like 2000 theatres in like that, so My wife. Parks is very back, which is the very, very end our dog be at the other end of our condo and as my wife pulls in, with Windows closed in the venture, even with air conditioning on and windows closed in the summer. I don't know Shit. How the heck you know, And there was a guy who studied all this cargo. That's not the only dog. No one does that to Shi. You could hear the car pull up from wherever and the dog goes crazy and goes and sits by the door and wines. And the researcher tried all sorts of things like OK, come back from a different direction. Park a block away. All these things in the dog's all still knew it. It's a fascinating research study, and there's a whole book about it now, but the point is the dogs. We don't even understand how well they understand us. Exactly. So of course. They are picking up on our stress. Now what? We don't know where. Well, let me rephrase that. We didn't think we do know and works both ways. So in part They do help us and caps to to feel better. There's no doubt about it, and I can describe exactly how. Having said that I worry that some of these dogs themselves and cast Are feeling our stress a bit too much, and therefore getting anxious themselves. They don't know why. I mean, they don't know There's a pen DeMint going on. They don't know there's unrest in the street. They don't know you've lost your job, but they do know That you're unhappy or anxious and in any case, not acting your typical self, and they try to console us in many cases and again in some cases. I worry because I think some of these animals Which means I don't know, But some of these animals, actually then themselves become anxious, and that's you know, unfortunate, you know, and I feel badly about that. Then what we try to do is well aware of what we tried to make them happy because we care so much. And in doing so we do all these silly things which makes our steel better. And I question it. Even on the very, very simplistic level. Studies have been done to demonstrate this just walking your dog. Something nice you're doing for the community because as I won't pass the dog Or you walked pastor. Anyone walks past the dog. Endorphins in their heads and our heads. Do this little happy dance and they can't help but to do that, And that's this split Second Pub of The happiness and you will or me smile and even in cultures were There is some concern about dogs culturally, in different places in the world. They show pictures of dogs, and the same thing happened in their brains. Yeah, I want to get into that because I was reading. I was reading an article today about what happens to your dog's brain because we have been home. Ah, lot more than we usually are. So I want to get into that with you. We've got to take a quick break If you have a question for Steve Dale 3129817 200 Steve is here for a little while.

I grew up with the beagle that cute and everything You know, I still have pieces of wooden furniture that he chewed on. I now have a border carrier who is nine years old. He does not have a destructive bone in his body. That too, and anything. He has a box of rubber toy. Some are tough, Tamar. Delicate thin and he just knows the difference. In what Pekin shoe and they're not knowledge. Robert. Typical. Sure when you just you're like, Yeah, So I just did a blood post. Actually, this morning when I answered a question from a reader who's that? Oh, my. My dog is chewing on my kid's fingers. What do I do, and it's a little puppy, but but I said, Okay, Here's what you do. You know, it could be the Beetle. Just working taught from a young age. This is what you chew on. And this isn't what you doing. And by the way, I love border terriers, so they wouldn't do that. If they are wonderful. Nobody knows about him. You have to keep it right. I will tell you if I were to choose the terrier tomorrow. It would be a border terrier. Really? What makes him so special? You don't know They're really smartness on but fight about me on that there are unlike carriers in some way they are more like legal In some ways, they They don't are quite as much their world work years barracks, but well in general, you know, I'm not saying they're completely quiet, but but in general, they don't have that. Terrier demeanor that that that determine carrier terror. There's some kind of terriers called cares since you know on and not the border terrier that sweet. They're not another while yet. Swell. You're you know you're going down a dangerous road. Let's just say Steve down legs, border terrorists. On steady likes all cats and dogs. I'm not sure where you fall on the details, but you know I love him. Sure. Of course. I loved her. Very did we answer your question or what? Uh, not a typical of the breed or dogs in general. Not like being destructive. All of you just He doesn't like. People have dogs for a long time, and their houses are still standing. You know, it's it's just a matter of teaching a dog a young age. You know what? I got him at nine a week when he was a puppy. I had to tell him no about certain things about 1/2 dozen times, But I'm not kidding. And he just Even as a little puppy. He just didn't touch. Well, Sy anytime shirts, Steve and correct me if I'm wrong, Mary, Thank you for the call Dogs like people, and I'm sure cats the same way. Some are. Some act one way some act another, You know, I've had I've had a couple dogs that were big diggers. I've had other dogs. It didn't never dug never chewed anything just laid around there were you know, so every everything is different. Wait. We got a text. And now you know it is about tease about cats because I'm a dog guy, But somebody texted and they were upset. They wired dog so important. What do you know? This is somebody who doesn't like dogs. They don't understand what people get out excited about dogs. Why they're so important. The text did not come from Tom Hush. But.

baseball in the attic and he will appraise any of the sports memorabilia that you have got stuff laying around in the closet somewhere or in the attic I take it out describe it to us and did he he will praise he's a professional appraiser and we get amount every once in awhile to talk about to your memorabilia and if you if you would like to if you'd like to join us we would love to have you three one two nine eight one seven two hundred three one two nine eight one seven two hundred a couple of texts are came in as we were talking about the movies three one two says I still can't forget the rats having sex in bad boys two I totally forgot about that completely forgot about it eight six four area code says that I saw bad boys for life this past Friday and it was awesome a big twist in a lot of funny things bad boys for life is a must see movie yeah I don't agree so Michael sack is gonna join us in just a few minutes but we to speaking of sports Tom what do you what are your thoughts on this that I'm about to talk about there's a new petition circulating social media that wants to do away with the Superbowl Sunday and move it to Saturday that's a big move yeah well I mean it's been on Sundays forever I don't I don't know yet ever played on any other day than a Sunday yeah no it's always been on a Sunday always been on Sunday we've been on a Sunday and it's I think this is Superbowl fifty th for hi man I've lost count is fifty four sure because I am I I I I am I am the age of the Superbowl every year yeah yeah Super Bowl fifty four right there and then I going to be fifty five but when the Superbowl you know the beginning of the year still fifty four so I'm I'm always the age of the Superbowl every year you've never lived a year without a Superbowl that's right so they want to move it to Saturday I don't know man I I think there's going to be a massive resistance on that I I can see why though because so many people the Superbowl party is a big thing yeah is a big thing people are eaten there drinking mainly this is the problem is that they want to be able to get it to work for the next day yeah and that that game goes fairly late sometimes and it's not like watchin Sunday afternoon football your what is Sunday night for and then they always try to have some sort of ratings grabber show afterwards right so you might want to watch was coming on after the Seattle I mean the number of television programs that have debuted after the Superbowl is Dallas yeah including a family guy yeah family guy debuted in nineteen ninety nine at the Superbowl according to a petition on change dot org the creator Frank regret rue Gregory Rochester New York resident says of the Superbowl were to move to Saturday it would make it would get more money and attract visitors to the game he also believes the NFL will get more television views because most government jobs will have the day off and more children will be interested as well the goal of the petitions to gain five thousand signatures four teams will face off well they did we did fit in face off so who is innocent it's the chiefs and the forty Niners are yet to use forty Niners yeah the chief the forty Niners are going to the Superbowl however the halftime performers for the Superbowl have been announced that Jennifer Lopez and Shakira so wow yeah I wouldn't mind if it was on a Saturday honestly honestly I'd I'd be more likely to watch it at this point yeah I don't know I think it's just too it's too much of a tradition ma'am they have it on Superbowl Sunday man got tax from the two to four says keep it on Sunday but played two PM so earlier earlier started earlier uhhuh that takes it that might take away from the whole prime time that said anything don't know that's the that's the thing it's a you know it's a it's a big prime time you know ratings boost you know I started two o'clock in the afternoon you know most parties don't even get going until around six honestly when they have the Superbowl parties people you know show up at like two by the time by the time the game starts everybody's half in the bag so yeah no that's I think that's always been a problem that no one can ever really solved because it's become such a tradition do you have your Superbowl Sunday it's been that way forever well as Sunday is also a football day right up mode you know during during football season Sunday you got Sunday you get Monday and yet Thursday yeah okay but Sunday is traditionally the that when you think football you think Sunday at least I do and I realize there's Monday Night Football another Thursday night football and those are you know very popular as well but Sunday is football day I mean it's you know like people who people watch like you know you know that there are people who I have the fantasy leagues who spend all day Sunday watching every game you go to church on Sunday morning and wherever you are you know you go to church in Chicago Sunday morning it always ends with all right go bears yeah so that's always the thing I don't know I don't think this would work I don't I don't think moving the Superbowl to a Saturday would work despite the fact that the there is a petition they wanna get five thousand signatures is not seem like not much not many I don't think that's enough to convince the National Football League two thousand signatures not improve their their signature event you're not gonna I mean at five thousand signatures is not gonna make the Superbowl move I mean it's been around for fifty it's been on Sunday for fifty four years for a reason so what is it two weeks right there was a there was a it's always two weeks right what Saddam its main yet two weeks because the it can be played on the second can you be played on Sunday February second right because they always take one week off after the after the after the the after the playoffs yeah the the championship one for us that so it's the Kansas City Chiefs verses the forty Niners is anybody rooting for anybody you have an idea of a horse in this race well I kind of want to see the Titans get in to the Superbowl I cut you know that would have been interesting but I mean I don't know if you cap colony of the chiefs game now I do that I mean Patrick homes is a monster and the whole team is really great and then Packers got Packers got a spanking well you know it was it's funny because I don't I'm not a big football guide and watch any I didn't watch any of the playoff games or anything like that but it was pretty funny to see what was on my news feed call the bears fans who hate the Packers they were having a good time so people would genuinely happy that the Packers lost or at least people on my news feed were very very happy that they that they lost so all right anyway I don't think the Superbowl should be moved too well to a Saturday this leave it on Sunday where it is it's a tradition and yeah the petition is there to change a change dot org and if you want to sign it if they're only looking for five thousand signatures for your look into to support this move of us super all being moved to a Saturday I need to Julia here on seven twenty WGN and it is a a Monday morning Tom Hodges the producer and host Nick to Julia and so if you want to watch check out the the article it's online right now you can maybe maybe a few wanted for your signature on there so all right here's what we're gonna do we're gonna continue Michael Sacchi is going to be in studio with us from baseball in the attic he will help you will praise any of your sports memorabilia and so if you have sports memorabilia that you think is worth something Michael Sacchi for baseball in the attic he's here he'll be here to tell you if your sports memorabilia is worth coming up with here on the neck to Julie shell and he will be here in studio and we.

"Not the rock roll hall of fame this one mention that how you doing it's Nick Giulio I hope you are well we are continuing here live in the skyline studio on a Friday morning Tom hush as my producer and I'm your host Nick Julia we've got our regular Friday features coming up after three o'clock I will not do to fix picks this week of Vic is taking a week off needs a little needs a little break about it will return next week so the regular features we can three instead of two thirty because there's no fixed pick up this morning but we've got you big dummy straight out of context make the show spies and of course flat jams Friday where we've got we've already got a bunch of requests right town yeah they're coming like crazy so you want to get in on this now is the time three one two nine eight one seven two hundred three one two nine eight one seven two hundred so while we wouldn't we also want to hear from you who do you think are the funniest standups who makes you laugh what makes you laugh the reason I bring this up is because at home waiting for me is this two hour documentary that was on ABC last night about Richard Pryor and I'm very excited to watch it he a I think he was the funniest man that ever lived and I think he's the greatest end up comedian that that has ever been on a stage and this and stood in front of a microphone no he poured his heart and soul out in front of people you know talking about his foibles and his problems in his personal life and his addictions in a beautifully funny and profane way nobody swore like Richard Pryor and it all works like his words he selected those words purposes loop purposefully and you know as profane as he was he was in my emotional and it was beautiful and absolutely hello Larry S. arm it's hard to find anything you know any bits that we can play on the air Richard heard prior without having to hear you know of beep every two seconds but I was lucky enough I you know I got to see Richard Pryor and it was I was amazing and his concert films the three concert films that he made he made Richard Pryor live in concert Richard Pryor live on the Sunset Strip and Richard Pryor here now our legendary especially the first one the for the first Richard Pryor concert film from nineteen seventy eight I think is the best documented standup routine I've ever seen that's ever been that's ever been done the command that he has over the audience and the material is so strong and his delivery everything about the first concert movie is amazing and live from the Sunset Strip is a is a legendary one too because that's the first one and that's the first performance that he did it after his burning accident after the the the whole thing everybody thought he was going to die in so it's this triumphant return to the stage it's weird I don't know Tom if you know this or not you seen live on Sunset Strip I have yeah it's great but the first one is the best I still maintain the nineteen seventy Richard Pryor live in concert is the greatest stand up the greatest ninety minutes of stand up that's ever been filmed a budding Sunset Strip it was a two night performance he was two nights and he completely bombed the first night but he was nervous he couldn't get through it in it you know like all this stuff about him you had been in front of a crowd in a long time and he had gone through this life changing you know event where he almost died I mean it was a suicide attempt is what you find out later but he couldn't do it the first night he tanked and so normally when you make a concert movie they they usually do it over the course of a couple of like with any kind of like comedy special that you see a stand up special that you see it's usually two performances that date you know that they will cut together so if you see it you know like let's say you go to the victim you're watchin somebody to that they're about to film a concert or a an HBO special or Showtime special something if you go both nights the what they will wear the same clothes like the comedian wear the same clothes because they want to cut between when the jokes hit better because they want the best material possible so they do it over the course of two nights because some audiences don't react as well but so that was that was the that was going to be the case with live on Sunset Strip they were gonna cut between the two performances but he only had that one performance to choose from and and that's what they used in Sunset Strip but yeah I just I can't really explain how how how much I love Richard Pryor you know he never made his movies were never as great as his standup made he made a lot of stupid movies I'd be the first to admit that he's he he he did make up against a lot of stupid films and they were never as funny as he was I think the funniest movie that Richard Pryor ever made is which way is up replace three different roles and the three roles are you know based on characters that he creates free stand up and that's another thing that he does he does all these great characters on stage and becomes them like he was a great actor not just to not just a brilliant you know comedian but he's a great actor and so but the only movie that he ever made which is not a comedy which is by far the best thing he's ever done and the best performances ever given is in Paul Schrader's blue collar and it's not a comedy I mean that kind of go the kind of shows you that he he really could act I like the movie Jo Jo dancer that he wrote and directed which is autobiographical I thought judge a dance your life is calling was good lot of people didn't like it I thought it was good but again on the movie side a lot of them were just not very funny they're not nearly as funny as he was capable of being when he was on stage with his own material just killing it so who do you think it's funny three one two nine eight one seven two hundred we would love to hear from you who's your favorite stand up comedian who makes you laugh we're going through all generations it could be an older one could be a newer one newer standard what funny new standards out there really really funny so three one two nine eight one seven two hundred we got some text come in in the phone lines are open I also have in front of me from Rolling Stone the best standup comedians of all time the fifty best into comedians of all time so we're talking.

"Continuing or live in the skyline studio Tom hush is our producer here and I'm your host in the news is next from the northwestern medicine newsroom yeah that's coming up that we are discussing some really strange creatures and phenomena my guest is Linda Godfrey she is the author of eighteen published books about strange creatures and phenomena and we're discussing us some of that with her Linda we we have a call from a from a listener who would like to ask a question okay okay here's doc good old doc doc what do you got a question for Linda it now it is J. like report K. is anecdotal stories about these creatures but the skeptic in Maine would say how often does do you find evidence and the world is chamar crazy so you can have all kinds of cam are innocent lives around the city of Chicago for instance if the woman turned into a creature in front of me in a church and some guys wrestled wet there she might turn back indoors so that there might have been so I about Burke batters it's just that when people have encounters how often is she looking for physical evidence how often does that happen how often does it happen when the physical evidence well you know what to look for a new track everything I found to create a good thing track that look like laundry that dog hi there definitely not anything else that could go with the point you have to kind of a quaint yourself with but the regular animal Kerr around and then you'll be able to opt out I've also done quite a bit with trail cam and here's the thing with the trail camp and it almost universal you put the bailout the fed up and people done either because my car five camera he said it up in a way that it will trigger the camera if if the baby is moved in any way and then you go check that and it is gone and there's nothing on the camera and very often there's nothing there's like a special pattern of static I've had one where something actually turned the camera that was really tightly right on to abandon this guy thank god internet so that was the thing that guy well I got nothing but pictures of the band thank you completely gone that I put that in there and then people who do where the date with taking a photo of the when they get it it blurry it's almost like they're in another you know if they were taken right word but their dialect to magnetic field we all have a look at the lake yeah it's just different enough that it doesn't match with our technology and it would explain well why we can't get a good curl one good example would have been happy again and it called Patty how people look at the Bob Dylan is still alive and talking about it they took the old fashioned I will love it and had a very good what they got was a female but landing and is it really realistic and as you can there is too well made could get technology that they had if they if they're making animal breaking that down at the different hi of all the camera and then we have the dollar electronics today so it makes sense and are people who have had here sample in fact there is a fairly convincing other big dollars and I think Friday night I think that was able to find unknown okay hair and they did a lab test and it is so that it was completely lacking on the doll in the middle with meant that it wasn't one animal health we do have a list so you can find you could find a and and yeah and a whole bunch of things and and I have a lot of confirmed as not being any known animal but there's nothing on the fact that day yeah yeah yeah they don't have an art well that's another big problem that we have okay Linda Godfrey is with us she is an author an investigator and she's written eighteen books on strange creatures and phenomena doc thanks for the call thank you Sir all right there you go there's there you go let's let's see what we can how many people have you do you encounter that our deal I'm sure you encounter a lot of skeptics right Linda and and about a lot of blame on yeah you don't blame no I I think it's better to be a little more on the technical side and completely believing everything you know because so many things can be explained by being misidentification of animals when you get a look we have a really great idea to get a good look at it and think it is like the title of my book I know when I found people you have really handed experiences in and they discuss something the daylight for travel for minutes in a longer than most people because one again well not really but they know it's nothing yeah yeah and it has been among people don't believe that yeah okay we have another caller here's Caroline Caroline your honor we check there thank thank you hi it happened about forty years ago I was headed westbound and Irving Park Road just it's true that she will park with theory I can't think of the cross street right now yeah and I get a red light and there were no street lights on in the world this was about maybe one o'clock in the morning and animals started crossing Irving park and when it got in front of my lane it was it was a ways down on Irving park but I could still you know what I was seeing.

"Day here with you until five AM in for Nick to Julie the the perfectly fine but a little under the weather NYC to jail be worked with you and and Tom again tomorrow you know it's very to my right Tom hush stabilizing influence in and music aficionado here with us spinning the hits as well and when it comes to hits and the bears the hits were maybe the double doing. which were you know guided things where the the bears had a great season last year and on the people thought they would have had a chance to go even further into the playoffs and they and they would have if it wasn't for the kicker and it's one of those positions that it's essential a lot of times people don't give it much thought right but if it's not working it can really be a glaring problem and. I don't know how I feel about it because this is the luckiest win also the unluckiest almost lost right it was it was a crazy ending to that game I mean the way it all broke down and the struggles of the bears at all afternoon what are the offense of side and then they did get the lead they scored a touchdown to take the lead the Broncos came back and scored late in the game with less than a minute left tie it it was a thirty seconds left and but then they will actually didn't even try it was it they went Vic Fangio the former defensive coordinator for the bears decided he was gonna go for two when the problem was when they ran got went to run the play the committed a penalty and I got moved back so that he did want to kick the ball because is too far back right so they were they decided to kick the extra point instead they missed the kicker makes missed the extra point but but the players side so now the ball got moved back to the original spice is crazy you you couldn't write this up the way that everywhere I went so then they decided to endeavor was like will attack religious go for two and get the win so they did they still race god because if they don't mail make it they will. so they get it they go ahead but they leave thirty seven seconds left on the clock. and the bears get the ball back there's a penalty on of the questionable courted by themselves thirty seconds left you this isn't you know Tom Brady or Aaron right back there being able like Joe Flacco is good but but like it's not as though I still think that a lot of their fans and you can speak to that side of it as you were watching it live probably felt like we got this although we were feeling that the where you didn't think that they are going to be able to come back with thirty seconds like a wave based on the week before his performance by Mitch it was tough to think yeah they're going to come back and go down the field and get there the field goal they need well as it was again the wraps. well there was some covers a couple questionable calls on hits earlier in the game against the bears and the bears got a break and got a brought me the passer penalty which pushed the ball fifteen yards down the field and then he was able to make a completion of which was ruled a missile out in for the listeners to and like I was busy judging grand could show and I did not get to see this so I I was able to say look whoa okay to the bears end up winning I checked it and let it look like they won seem just run of the mill to you that the box score didn't didn't didn't give a or easy these raids I saw the replay and it was the one how can this even happened right and if so what I saw was they did complete that pass over the middle I'm not sure if they had any time outs or anything had one time out left it and they they called it right when the the plate right when he went down on the ground. I was called from the sideline there was a time I called by Matt Nagy and next thing you know that the kicker is coming out to a lot of times we get zero like that never was waived all the defenders are waving her arms like the game was over and and they ruled that there was one second left on the clock so now you bring out the beleaguered kicker so you have a one second left game winning field goal is already hit to hit one for fifty to one from forty so that now this is the third field goal of the game for him when you say beleaguered meaning that he's been under pressure since the beginning of undone net. everybody's like you know because the kicker pearl you know that's he's a the life blood of the team at this point okay so part he didn't like it he was a tough act to follow exactly so now he's under pressure gets on the field all fifty three. the whole cities like you gotta make this kick to this. so yeah and so he kicks it they had a television he had never been right Denver before but just the fact that the games on the line you make it the win and you miss it then your mail then there were all talking about it for another week about how they are never kicker and blah blah blah now this was yeah because Cody Parkey him he missed a lot of pretty easy K. emailed a couple tough ones right throughout the course of the season we missed a lot of well I should have made for from off the goal post what gamer how does that happen to have it be like okay you're going to be you know game on the line no time on the clock fifty three yards and if you miss it well it's because you're terrible. it's a it's a lot of pressure that's a lot of pressure and it it's a team game I mean the other the factories put real loaded up on the kicker is that really how did they get down there well that's the whole thing it's like you know the the the they have to get in a position to do that so Mitch didn't do a whole lot of during the game statistics wise the defense bent but didn't break and you know they got a lot of wind and they it was an improbable victory in the end and it was really you know who at the end of the when they made the field goal it was just amazing the fact that the a lady walked out other surviving and in the coming back one and one is still down went to you go down onto the Packers won against Minnesota now they're looking up two games in the standings with one in hand because the the head to head that still leaves your two games of the season you're already behind the eight ball because. no that's you know that's the way it was planned so I was just it was it was a weird game it's just weird I don't think I've ever seen an ending like that a lot of extra pressure on the kicker in in a lot of it didn't necessarily it wasn't necessarily his fall you mention the other game so much was going into the hype for that season kick up not only for the season for the bears the package but for the NFL for the hundred season right right it was all starting right here sure and I think people Italy beers nation felt comfortable saying minimum eight Pete there were so many. all the commercials you know. I hate that was built up for you know that whole week leading to it and even when it with the game came out of the schedule was I call the Packers first week Monday Thursday night football the guys to kick them around a little ways we get our Superbowl run was right we get will be one on that'll be an easy win that right so yeah but to go on to an even for the price it is we hate to see is it's one thing when you get a team that's like you know because every team understands unless for the seventy two dolphins yeah you're gonna lose a game here and there and so sometimes you could say like okay well maybe we wanted more maybe our team will you look at this for the first time that the the Bronx have gone over to since like nineteen ninety nine they didn't want to lose either they're at home right they wanted to think ill so this is it's it's a tough deal and if the bears go into that and this whole place is on fire yeah that's rice holes yeah. and I'm sure there were some choices discussion made there after the game between you know be and then happen again and I thought that so I know that you get a chance to listen to them and I want to listen to the note I know times got some some audio and we've got a guest coming up we're gonna talk a little bit about important things so that you don't have to go into the topsy turvy challenging world of being a kicker in the NFL is stable right we all talk about educational funding we've got it like a cool interview that we're gonna have a two thirty but later on in the program I know that Thomas got some audio from here but I'll be in it's it's tough because you know you don't want to face them I would hate to like be the team is one thing say fans can go ahead but they're like so famously legendarily crappy. and even when things were going okay you know it seems like it was stuff so we're gonna take a break we're gonna come back we got a great interview coming up it's day here on seven twenty WGN can you really afford.
