"6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6 two canon Chicago. Listening to WGN radio, a news talk 7 20. Obviously what I said before the break, I don't believe. But he said that there are two things that we all ought to be able to agree on. That we should disassociate ourselves from China And that we control the southern border. Well, I'm with you, Ken. But we do not all agree on those issues. No, there are many people who are prepared to do anything. To make China happy, provided we have access to their 1.6 billion consumers, the National Basketball Association, the biggest collection of horrors in this country right now. But they're not the only ones. A lot of companies are quite prepared to do anything. Oh, open your doors. Let us sell stuff to all those Chinese people. We don't care how we have to bastardize ourselves. So we don't all agree. And in terms of controlling the border, no, it's terrible, it's evil, it's racist. We must open up the borders, make open borders, let all those poor people in, we must throw open the doors. And the loose complete control of who comes into the country. So what if the fentanyl and human traffickers and others come in as well? We're opening the doors. And again, that's not what I believe. But that's what a lot of people believe. So can I wish that I could share your view that there are certain things that we ought to agree on? Oh, I would go so far as to agree that we ought to. But we don't. Not even remotely. And so I guess I could say I share your frustration. And I agree with you that it's been probably 40 years at a minimum. Since we've had, if you will, a consensus on much of anything in this country, but we don't. And what's more, we don't see anything on the horizon that would change that. We're going to continue to slug it out in bare knuckle, full contact partisan politics, and we're going to continue to call people rhinos or whatever other terms we've care to dredge up, which in many cases are not particularly appropriate if they do anything with somebody from the other side of the aisle. One thing we need to keep in mind, folks, I know a lot of people, for example, don't like Susan Collins, the senator from Maine. I guarantee you you like her better than any replacement of hers might be. The only alternative to Susan Collins in Maine is a total off the wall left wing Democrat. And yes, there are differences. Check the voting records if you don't believe so. Susan Collins actually on economic issues as a fairly conservative voting record. But she's as conservative as you're going to get out of Maine. And the idea that you're going to run some super maga person for public office in that state, and when, remember winning what Donald Trump said he was so much in favor of. You're not going to do it. So get over it. Get over it in some cases you simply are not going to do it. Larry Hogan, the former Republican governor of Maryland. That is as conservative, a public figure as you are going to get out of Maryland, which by the way is fairly conservative. But you're not going to get anybody besides a Larry Hogan type Republican or a flaming off the wall full fledged left wing idiot. Those are the choices, some states simply don't have a big conservative base. And I'll tell you something else

"Years and radio I'm probably dreams and of course that is. In fact. It was just Chevrolet Cheyenne. That was a chair in Cheyenne said she wanted her dead end street. So happy, happy to do that. All right, so 888-876-5593 88 88 Raleigh. That takes us to Rick from Rock Island, Illinois. So all right, Rick, thanks for calling. Yeah. I really think you're suggesting on the radio because I'm in that zone you were talking about. And how are you receiving us? Well, we get you, but it's changing in and out. Yeah. And I think because you'll be talking about something you'll be something often feeds out And then you go to commercial that happens to come back in real good. You can hear the commercial perfect. So I know. I know. I always used to say that what used to kill me when I was a kid de exing all the time was it always faded out when they got to the call letters. And sometimes I'd have to listen for darn near an hour, but the commercials all seemed to be perfect. And you'd wonder, and after a while, I got maps for various cities. So when they mentioned street names, I could kind of figure out where they might be. Hang on a minute. Don't go away. Stay right where you are. And we'll try to stay right on your radio as we find out what's going on in the world and beyond. I don't know we're beyond would be. But if there is, it'll be on WGN radio news right here on WGN radio. How smart's

"WG it all happened. I'm Robert James all right sing it. Yes, 1966 on stacks. Got to number 19 on the R&B charts, I'll have you know. And it has something in common with every other artist we played, so who is that? You got another hour of this and I'll end the bumper stumpers early next hour. I promise so that I can reveal the theme because I bet you're not getting it. Of course you're not getting many of the artists in that surprises me. I almost didn't pick these because they're all so popular. Obviously not the songs in question, but the artists and we'll have four more of them next hour and every one of them had some bona FIDE hits and we won't play those. So we'll pick it up right there with another oh, I see I have another minute of this. So let me review the question again. In 1880 there were 50,000 of these in America. A hundred years later, there were 66 million, 66 million, what? By the way, we've had a few people guess typewriter. In 1880, there were probably only 5000 typewriters in America. It was still a new machine and people looked at it more as a novelty at that point, but by 1880, this had been around for a few decades already, and it was increasingly becoming a necessity. And for many people. And many people have them today. I mentioned, so there's 50,000 in 1880 and 66 million now. And they account, here's a clue for about 75,000 accidents a year. Yeah. Think about that on WGN radio

"Yeah yeah I want the WGN radio I'm Raleigh during the course that's Jackie Wilson. Number two on the R&B charts in 1959 number 13 on the top charges will follow up on the teardrops on Brunswick and his first full records were co written by Barry Gordy, including that spot I love yourself so it was merry in Milwaukee who requested that and happy to play it. All right, so Suzanne in Chicago. What's happened in Suzanne? Welcome back to WGN radio. Hi, rally before when I told John, I was calling about I wanted to thank you for your shandy hook story. Back in my youth in the college days when you lived on campus in a dorm. One of those girls I was at school with many many, many years later, wrote in the alum notes that she was a teacher in sandy hook when that happened. And she said, I thought about this for all the years since I read her comment. She said, something is going to come out in the future that nobody knows about. So I have been always an article about sandy hook of cost my eye, but I've never come close to wondering to finding out what that may have been. I think what you're saying is part of the reason that Alex Jones went down the rabbit hole, because there was a lot of talk about some of the backstory there. And I think that Alex was genuine in what he did. Again, I don't buy that he was just doing it for money or to make his network more popular. The problem is that he crossed that line. You can't cross or shouldn't cross and what he did to those parents was just horrendous what they faced, and especially since they reached out to him personally, and he just cast it aside. Now, this wasn't the bulk of all his shows at the time or anything like that. But he had a responsibility before he went on that path. So I wouldn't doubt for a moment that there's more to virtually every horror that we hear, but to run with it the way he did while he'll be paying the piper. Right. I was hoping maybe something in there would. Would click with what she said. You know, I'll tell you, even if he had additional information, at this point, he has to come across as contrite because again, this trial was strictly to assess what the monetary damages will be. And that's going to be interesting for that jury, because of course you don't get money because your feelings are hurt. That's not the way it works in the court system. They've got to prove tangible damage in some way. Now it can be distress. Yes, to a degree. But when you're talking a $150 million, you know, it's going to be very hard for them to justify that. So I'll be very curious to see where the jury goes. But yes, like you, I had read similar things that there's much more to this story. And there probably is, but what is undeniable is those children died. Right. You know, and so when one of the parents came to him and said, please, should have taken that a little more seriously. And I don't know if she actually knew what it was and didn't want to say. Or if she knew that something more would come out, but she wasn't. She didn't know exactly what it was. Well, she was teaching there at the time. I would guess that she might not have had proof, but there probably was talk of something and again, not to the point that it was a false flag operation, but you know, these are always when you look at these stories retrospectively and you ask yourself, what could you have done to prevent this? Tons of threads that come out, but in a free society, there's many things you can't prophylactically do. So how many cases we've had since? Well, you know, I mean, story after story. And unfortunately, I think in many ways the emphasis is probably on the wrong on the wrong thing. The idea that if we suddenly took away gun rights that we could avoid this, that nothing is further from the truth than that. And one thing that I wish is that I always say the fastest moment of time is between a shooting and the call for gun control. I wish that more people would look at the psychology of this. And there are many things that fall through the cracks that later become very obvious. And, you know, not much talk about that. I want to know more of what some of these some of these shooters are medicated on. And on and on the story goes. I mean, what is the syndrome here that's allowing this to happen? Because it's not as simple as blaming the gun. I always wonder why we go through lines and finally come wise when we go. We don't know you're into a spiritual discussion now and there are many people who believe that you that you incarnate onto the earth plane to learn some of life lessons through direct experience because obviously when you're in a corporeal state, you're in a body. You feel on a level of emotion that theoretically you wouldn't feel if you were on the astral plane, so to speak. So I can talk about that some other time on another story. When we get into. The ghost night. Right, absolutely and on and on it is. Now, you know, it's interesting how wars from time immemorial are fought over religion, but the reality is the only thing we all know is we're all going to die. What happens after that? Well,

"WGN radio, we're going to forgo the final bumper. I'll just put it on next week because I've got about a minute and sherry's going to get half of that to try and guess this week's trivia question and if not I'll reveal it. So all right, sherry, let's have those guesses. Okay, really quick My first one since you said 7 folks was close, proposed marriage during a radio broadcast. Next, okay. Santa Claus drove piloted or owned a race car airplane already. Nope, next. Okay, went up and a hat. Air balloons, nope, next. Ran a marathon, our bicycle race. Nope, next. Parachuted out of an airplane. I like it, but not right. But they're all wonderful guesses, though, except they're not right. I'll talk to you soon. Thank you. Okay, you're welcome. Bye bye. Less than 38,000 people did this in 1945, 50 years later, over 2 million did, made the pilgrimage to Mecca. Saudi Arabia provided 44,000 air conditioned tents holding a million and a half people and 20,000 buses to transport them a few years ago. In the mid 1980s, king farid changed his title from his majesty to custodian of the two holy mosques. So, made the pilgrimage to Mecca. Don't hit me. All right, well, I have a new question next week. And of course, if this is Friday just enjoy the show, but if it's Monday, call back in the meantime, speaking of calling, I hope you'll call tomorrow. I thank you for listening and especially for calling. I think Dan for keeping us on the air John for screening your calls. That's a wrap. I'm roddy James. It's WGN Chicago

"WGN radio I'm Raleigh James bumper stumpers a to Z working on the letter T and that part is important because you're saying oh I know over and over That's Bobby day Actually his real name was Robert Burton He wrote it Yes and Bobby day had the hit but we're not playing that However this guy was the first name begins with a T certainly had Alison big hits One in particular was in Aladdin This one was on Aladdin in 1958 and let's see what else I can tell you to maybe give you some clue about him Indianapolis Actually And died in 1990 in Los Angeles but he was from Annapolis but his big hit was also on Aladdin a year earlier So who is he 888-876-5593 Now before we get to first time caller bob We are talking to Gary and Austin and he did so well aced the top ten from July 1969 that I figured

love me tonight I had a lost it right here by the way And be proud of it I know that I've heard it but it isn't coming to mind Yes it was a good thing It was on parrot There's probably only one act you can name on parrot who would fit this Record labels were never my strong suit Well I can see why Yes you wouldn't be looking at the label or anything like that But yes it was the lovely and talented Tom Jones Oh no wonder Yeah I told you Told you Yeah Tom Jones and I don't get along too well Yeah Great exercise in dial twisting Yeah although I will say first record he ever charted with it's not unusual It was a great song Yeah that was I like that Yeah You're right After that yes what's new pussycat Yeah when the glass was breaking in the intro I said that's all I need So that sums up the rest of his career But the dells of course have a marvelous version of it It's not unusual Probably my favorite Oh I'd love to hear that That'd be great Okay I will I will write that down and entertain you and myself tomorrow night And so all right how do you hear bob in Tennessee too I just wanted to say that quickly is great to hear him And he's in our thoughts and stuff Yes absolutely And hopefully whatever news he gets from the doctors not convoluted and something that will actually work Hopefully so All right so hang on and we'll confirm that address And yeah both Gary and friend and I are winners So that's how we do charts But we've got bob and he is the first time caller in Chicago so bob thank you and welcome to WGN radio Well thank you Actually I used to call WGN all the time for years and years First time on your show Oh good I hope you'll do it again Thank you I was gonna guess on your trivia Would it be the inheritance tax No and actually that's going to go up I think for 2022 it goes up to 12.06 million but what happens in 2025 is the law that lowered it sunsets and what will happen is it'll go back to its $5 million cap So I don't have to worry about that Well I was going to say nobody I know is terribly concerned either But you know for Sam zell's family or something maybe they are But in the meantime no this is something that completely goes away as of 2030 and it's nothing bad like taxes Well one final thing that over and over bumper just brought back memories of the Dave Clark 5 Oh yes they do As well Yes they covered it Well the hit was Bobby day The guy who did rock and Robin but then a year later this guy did it in his first name begins with a T and it was a year after he had a huge hit Well I got no guess on that But I will call you back someday and do charts Counting on it All right thanks Thanks Appreciate it Yeah that'll be a lot of fun Love doing charts And you're going to have any kind of charts you want We find one way or another So 888-876-5593 Most of these charts now are bound in books but when I worked at billboard one of the things that I would do in my spare time not that there was a lot of it But I'd sit there in the archives library and I would Xerox everything So I had every charge long before there was a whitburn book and but the books are really handy All right so let's see Karen and Hyde Park knows a

"On WGN radio shows answering questions like this but in the case of John giving money to his friend for golf that's not income I think in a lot of the times like if you're running a small business and you're doing a lot of transfers that way it is income If you're an independent contractor like a babysitter who's never reported the money And I think that's why we're even having this conversation then okay that's income But for many of us it's not income It's just a transfer So how does the IRS or anybody else know which is which Well that's the question isn't it How do they know The answer is they don't know And the whole purpose of this law is to get because they think that third party reporting has shown the increased voluntary tax compliance And so they're trying to make sure that everybody knows that it's going to be reported So they report it But if you can simply just say this was for a friend and family because some of these apps have a friend or family distinction So you could say oh this is a friend of family And so it's not going to be taxable or it's not a taxable event If you could simply do that to avoid it well that's what everybody would do because they're already trying to avoid it right And so the question is going to be how will the IRS know the difference between a goods and services transaction and a transfer between you and John and his friend for golf The answer is they can't know The only way they're going to know is if they ask you that's the only way they're going to know Does that mean you were audited Or I mean how do they ask you They don't call you Do you get an automated email Well what happens is you'll get what they call a correspondence audit It depends now what will happen is if you get a ten 99 K in the mail next year about this time and you include it on your tax return and then show why that's not taxable income Well then you won't get audited But you'll have to take you have to account for it You can't just ignore it And that's what a lot of people will do is that they'll ignore it And then once they ignore it the IRS has a copy of that ten 99 And then they do what they call a correspondence audit which is because it's all electronic So they know that they got a ten 99 K from this third party reporting and it reported that you had some money and you didn't put it on your tax return So they're going to say well here's what you said This is what we found Tell us why it's wrong And then a lot of people will ignore it And don't get taxed on it I was thinking about this all caps I was thinking John you said something about how this is going to change sports betting right I think fantasy football league That was a tester and what a great point because Stephen can identify this A lot of people are in big leagues where they're going to get paid 1213 hundred maybe $2000 for winning their league That's income right And maybe that was just between family and friends but now with the automatic reporting by PayPal or Venmo if they get paid via those outlets even correct me if I'm wrong but that's income right That will be income From whatever source derived that's what the law says And of the millions of people that have done that have received over $600 from their league What percentage John you go first of people do you think have reported that as income Well I'm the one that does every year So do you really Do you really You can claim the 5th if you want I'm going to guess it's close to It's a single digit I don't think people report that as income And Steven is not what this is all about Maybe not fantasy football leagues but all of the underground economies that exist that we all know about people that are getting paid in cash or getting Venmo and you know they like that because they don't report it Everybody seems to be comfortable with it And is that what this is all about Exactly because they need to increase tax revenue That's part of their budget and part of so that's why this was in the bill to offset some of the costs and normally where they could offset some of the costs to raise more revenue And that's what this is about It's about raising revenue And it's just okay That's some years now But that's a conversation I don't have time for now We got to wrap this up But I think that you should pay your taxes I don't care for some of you if you don't I mean you're not making a lot of money anyway God bless you for doing what you're doing but I guess everybody should be paying their fair share right Exactly I agree with that 100% you have to pay your taxes But the problem is the people that aren't going to be taxed And this isn't that it puts more reporting and more burden on your shoulders It makes your tax return more difficult.

"Commentator How are you How about you Oh that's a good answer I thrive Is that what you just said Yeah because I usually do Refreshing weekdays ten to two On WGN Rich lancome's on a phone line the attorney at Bryce Downey and lenkov is the host of the podcast that we host to WGN radio called legal face off You can also find that a WGN radio dot com Let's talk about the behavior of some judges in the news today locally we have the judge who was reigns kicked off the bench for who knows how long for what he said about an attorney right Yeah we got a hot mic situation We see that in many circumstances but we see it with as you mentioned a Cook County judge who last week was caught on a YouTube live stream basically mocking an attorney who had appeared before him for arguments that day judge William raines said that can you imagine waking up next to her every day Oh my God I couldn't have a visual on that if you paid me and that was followed by some additional comments about the attorney who had imparted with some Cook County assistant public defenders Could county one defender and one prosecutors are two prosecutors So got a lot of attention rightfully so we cover this in our podcast yesterday Not exactly the behavior that you want from judges as a taxpayer and certainly not prosecutors And we talked yesterday on podcasts we had two female attorneys gets on and it's kind of a humorous story in some respects but in many ways it's not because it does underline the fact that even to this day many female lawyers have to struggle with sort of an old boys mentality towards them this judge had commented on her hair and he told her to stop yelling and it really sort of fit into a lot of tropes and dog whistle comments that a lot of judges used even to this day when female attorneys were trying to advocate for the client So very unfortunate but the good news is we're talking about it and it got the light of day and so much of this happens that isn't known of course that it's good to see that this is getting some publicity We're talking about judge William raines and now the chief judge in the county Timothy Evans has said that he's been reassigned to duties other than judicial duties If your judge I don't know what those are is he making coffee now I'm not sure exactly what he's doing but he's not being a judge and there's no indication here as to when he's going to come back although they say he's going to have to watch some instructional videos to teach him how to better behave in public I want to know what you think about can that by a guy be a good judge or is it possible that he has been a good judge So men and women say stupid things men seem to do it more than ladies but I wonder if it's all that telling you know what box do we put this in Definitely not the comment you want from a judge as to your question whether that affects their ability to be a good judge I do think it does I mean you're a forward facing you're facing the public every day in court part of your job is to present a authoritative presence and also give everyone a fair shot And as one of our guests yesterday during our podcast pointed out how were you supposed to feel as though you're being treated fairly if your living involved If you're the party that that attorney represents how do you feel as though you're getting a fair shake in court If your judge is too worried about commenting on someone's appearance I wouldn't feel very good as well And again and we tell people all the time This is generally your only connection to the legal system right We're in the court every day litigants aren't So if I'm not litigant that I see this judge commenting on my judges oh my attorney is appearance and hair I don't feel terrible about the legal system So I do really think it has a cofounder effect That is a really good point We keep thinking in this case about how stupid it was to the judge and how mean spirit it was maybe to the attorney but what about the guy who said to go and hello I'm trying to get out of a death penalty here or a murder Hello And you don't feel like the focus is where it should be or that the judgment is prudent when the guy is behaving that sophomoric Okay so that's one case locally What's this other story about the judge yelling at somebody who didn't mow his lawn Yeah this one also I mean it's like you can't make this stuff up and there's a judge in Michigan who berated on a Zoom court appearance or maybe it was a WebEx court appearance but a Brady bunch court appearance where there's many people watching a judge in Michigan berated literally I mean use the term berated liberally This is literally yelling at him and saying you should be ashamed threatening to lock him up over what over a murderer to your earlier point over a robbery Mojo it's over this elderly man who has cancer 72 years old suffering from cancer too weak to really speak very well if you listen to the if you watch it he's having struggle he struggling breathing he also has difficulty with the English language presumably he's relatively new to this country or to the language and the judges yell at the end for allowing his driveway behind this house to become unkempt there's a picture that.

did have one big hit earlier this clearly wasn't it So if you know who he is terrific 888-876-5593 88 88 Raleigh And my question about a 150 people are killed in this profession every year And people still want to do it What profession And again obviously it's not a dangerous profession or the number would be way higher But it is one of those things where you say really that many Yeah at least that's my reaction to that So when you come up with something let me know Now you can have your own category and it can be absolutely anything You know maybe like geography I mean I don't know Maybe I like old time television Well not too old Obviously because television only been with us since the 40 is basically But none of any real sense Nonetheless we've got questions no matter when it is or what it is and we aim to please The only problem with trivia is that we can't play it without you Now of course if it's Friday night by all means do not heed this call to call Yeah because it's a replay So sit back and enjoy it But if you will remember on Monday night we're begging for calls is what we're doing That's right Down on bend and the 888-876-5593 on Monday night trivia And Cleveland Denis wants to take a guess at something I do I think he's talking to John though I don't know what he wants to take a guess on But we'll certainly consider it Maybe it's another one of our bumpers Yeah our last song I thought was a great one And like I said I had one hit but and recorded for years and back in the 50s but just one of them became a huge hit but nonetheless I think 53 on Aladdin he recorded something that I remember But officer He was working with the bumps black oil specialty and he was briefly on dot and so yeah pretty good group of records And are the bull puts something out on original sound but it was it was in the 60s He had one big hit and that was it It was a medley of his hit And then of course did the wonderful oral record in 1964 that I thought was wonderful anyway So 8 7 6 5 5 9 three at 88 88 Raleigh and it looks like Cleveland Venice and Elgin was first in So what did you hear you know Well when I heard the voice I knew Sunday Night from confidential Right That was the hit and you're right in his sunny night and confidentially Yeah all this was kind of mystified by him and who he was but up until recently never knew Yeah Well now you know right Because he was around for a long time and he's been dead about 24 25 years now but he was around like I say on Aladdin and specialty and dot And I think confidential was on dot and 56 But I thought in 64 if you want this love of mine it was just the best absolute best Well we're going to have to look that one up somehow But that's all I got He also let me play Absolutely I understand You know what I do want to guess again on the question for tonight How can a fireman Nothing a lot more than them than a 150 I'm sad to say Okay Yeah but that's a nice guess And while you're looking up your sunny night records art le bow on original sound release dedicated to you which was a big east delay fave So there you go Yeah All right Very good Thanks Thank you appreciate it So yeah that came out a few times actually but I'm not going to no no No it was originally on star look dedicated to you And that was 57 And that became kind of like an east LA record and then original sound put it out again later and it was a fine song So enough sunny night trivia for a moment I think anyway So we'll just move directly over to Gary and Austin How's it going Gary Well hey ro I remember that Sunday Night for hearing it It was a great record Yeah huggy boy used to play at an art label played it like I say that dedicated to you was big on art shows Yeah Yeah But that was good to hear that I have a guess for forest ranger Nice but not right Okay I didn't think so but it's still nice It's very nice I think it is a nice job You're out alone in the forest and I guess maybe a bear could get you Yeah I'm always rooting for the bears but something would get you Yeah right Well bears are nice They really are They're again I don't anthropomorphize I don't want one in the backyard I had that in Idaho It's really not good And the dogs really get worried But you know as far as looking at a distance I just love bears Yeah No you don't want to have water around you Although it was funny because you're driving up to Alaska one time and I said to John oh look at that bear And he said oh I'll get you a picture And he gets out of the car and he walks up to the bear and the bear stands up on his hind legs to give him a picture Wow that's a threat Yeah but I was like that bear could have eaten you but I've got my picture of my standing bear Yes I think there are laws against it in Canada whatever but obviously no one's on the Alaska highway So we were not worried Yeah Nobody's nobody's in here No no guarantee And we won't tell Right Well the statute of limitations is over now anyway and the bear's probably not a lot Yeah So it's all fine All right so we are going to do a January 1972 Yeah All right you ready I'm ready Number one brand new key Thanks Melanie Number two American pie Don

"WGN radio arm Raleigh James and of course it was Eddie Hodges who had the child star hit for that in 1961 but two years earlier in 1959 on RCA it was the eisley brothers with the Hugo peretti orchestra and there was a flipside of respectable and yeah of course what I liked about the beginning you know Elaine this is Rudolph Well that of course was oline Jasper who married Rudolf eisley Well Elaine Jasper had a brother That'd be Chris Jasper and he turned 70 this week Born in Cincinnati so he's an isley brother in law and he was with the isley brothers 73 to 84 amis Jasper Isley 84 to 87 but in the meantime he went out and got an education at Juilliard and Juilliard and a bachelor of fine arts from CW post and got his law degree from Concord university And he and his wife Margie are both lawyers So they've done right well for themselves But yeah always like that original Yeah it kind of different for the isley brothers very early in their career and of course Chris wasn't in the group Then he was a child And yeah barely ten if that but at the time yeah Rudolf was talking to Elaine And later sadly Eddie Hodges would have a hit with it Oh well chuck is in Rockford Welcome to WGN radio Hi It's been a long time Yes what are you doing Just getting the drain Well I understand that So very much You know well we just went through Christmas here You know and I can remember I like when I was in the third grade The PTA had a Santa Claus and I got up on the Santa Claus lap You know and I look Santa Claus in the face and you're not Santa Claus This is whittlesey And it turned out quite a few years later why she was turned out to be my mother in law Oh jeez Well she never lets you forget that But I played Santa Claus for some kid you know And their family and about 6 months later he was really troubled because he knew me and he was I was thinking about Santa Claus and then he says chuck he says you're not saying It was so funny You know I suppose it really confused Because it was pretty innocent about it is beliefs and stuff Oh yeah Yeah Well Santa's an interesting There was an interview with a bunch of department store santas about the strangest things that kids asked for And I always liked this one He said one could ask for new liver Apparently he was perfectly healthy He just wanted one to play with Yeah Yeah Well you know yes Well now I guess you know if you kind of if you got the right connections you can get a new liver Well right but not a play with And no no Yeah And makes you wonder what he visualized for the liver too You know I don't know Well and then one of the Santa said he had a little boy who looked to be 8 years old asked for a box of condoms since his mother wouldn't buy them for him Oh wait You know as a kid I had mistake Tampons for being firecrackers My mother did not Oh jeez Thank God he has displayed discreetly in all the leave it to a kid You know look at the writer's side of things or something or other The mistaken about identities on different things You know you were talking about How Canadian radio and TV I had spent some time in Detroit in a way it kind of got a little bit difficult to find a break and programming If you wanted to go do something Yeah But you know what If Bali advertising was dropped from The United States I suppose it would be a crash for a lot of people because it would be a big burden for the government but I wouldn't miss a lot of it because sometimes you go tuning from station to station and that's all you're getting is advertising You want to know what else is going on Well the thing I don't understand as far as that is the clustering of commercials where you hear ten minutes of commercials in a row And I've always said if the CIA wants to spread state secrets and make sure that no citizen will ever hear them just by the third spot in on a music station And I wonder how many advertisers really believe that their message is being heard Yeah that's something too because a lot of it's not very cheap unless you buy something preemptive and a big block of it Well a lot of people do you know with programmatic buying they'll buy remnants They'll bid for it at a penny on the dollar and if there's no other time sold because it's automated they get it So that happens sadly more often than you would you would think And it's not just radio and television same same deal You know you'll hear a cavalcade of commercials And I understand it in major markets where they're dealing with agencies and they're making the deluxe books but in a little market like where I've got stations I don't cluster spots every spot runs as a stand-alone element because I feel that if I accept the advertiser and I think their message is worth being heard I'm going to make sure it is Yeah well there's nothing like a satisfied customer Well and that's it You know and people have told us one spot a day on your station is worth a hundred on some others Because we feature each one And the other thing of course is that I won't accept anybody that I don't think is doing a good job at whatever they're doing And I won't solicit anybody So it's sort of a rarefied atmosphere For the first time I just accepted McDonald's and they were thrilled And I am too because they really do a good job here.

"WGN radio I'm Roby James those are the four shells And yes Jerry butler along with Eddie Thomas produced that and it was all unusual for vault because the group was out of Chicago Yeah Kenny's brother as far as that goes Billy Harper Charles Calvin James Kelvin and Willie James exton were in the group at the time There were other members as well and they were just that should have charted It's a real coat of shut up And the interesting thing about that is that in Philadelphia it's a quasi hit because Jerry butler a cherry butter Very blobby Plays it a lot of his dancers And somebody went on to YouTube a while ago with that record hot dog and took a clip of Johnny Otis show when they were doing hand drive with Willie and the hand drive And they used that as the video And it really fits it's great So if you go the four shells hot dog you can look for the Johnny Otis clip and it's neat And so yes they had recorded previously under the shells but I was saying the other night there was also one of those in Brooklyn So that was when I'm blue on whiplash And Jerry Jerry produced stuff on the label as well which was distributed by cameo Parkway hence the Philadelphia connection So that is them And a good deal There was also a listing on an Atlantic site about stacks groups and a Volt groups and it mentioned shade Austin and Gus guitar and Bobby nurse and Danny small involved on some level as well But I don't know In any way that was that was the deal Volt 99 77 Hot dog Like I said big big big Philly dance record Yeah So how many glad glad Kenny mentioned four shells Because as soon as he said that I said oh hot dog Absolutely So 888-876-5593 That's 88 88 RO LL YE and I always get the question when I say it's the Broadway James I hate the holidays club People say well why do you hate the holidays that much Actually I don't hate the holidays I'm sort of agnostic on and I'll carry their way But as I mentioned before I think that for people who are otherwise not necessarily in a happy mood the forced frivolity of the holidays is too much to bear Because it's just everywhere You can't escape it And for people who the last thing they want to hear is oh it's the holidays be happy Yeah they're like no I don't think so So this is a safe harbor And normally I do a Christmas Eve and Christmas night show to get you through it But that falls this year on days that I'm not on the air So we'll do our Christmas Eve show on the 23rd That's a Thursday And I understand there's a ball game just before it I think the hockey play by play And so we'll be on right after that We'll have Steve Brian on I love to do this every year because for 15 years Steve Bryant was the leading sales guy host of QVC And nothing like QVC when it comes to selling ridiculous holiday holiday gizmos we'll just leave it as that I was thinking of the pooping moose in particular But yeah in any event we always have fun reminiscing with Steve And he's a written quite a few Christmas songs hard to believe after that tenure but some of them are actually being played on major venues So good for Steve And we'll do that on the 23rd But until then Monday through Thursday live And Friday replay Friday as a replay of Monday night trivia we'll get you through it with the role of James I hate the holidays club Yeah If there's not the season to be married there is absolutely no reason that anybody should force you to Now the only good news of the pandemic is there are less holiday parties you have to attend Yeah But then again there's also less interesting food Emphasis on interesting because sometimes you really wonder made with love or revenge But there are usually some fascinating dieting stories you get or I shouldn't say dieting as in trying to diet but diet as in composition of what you're eating around holiday time I'm sure there's no food paradigm that could cover it adequately So we've got James on the south side and he joins us on WGN radio So what's up James How are you I got a couple great ones for you about scammers Okay I'll take the first one has to do with social security Now I will take without fail it's been voice that sounds like it's tied to sound like it's a theme now but it's not It's like rope by just saying this is short of the issue Where you hear this message you need to put down whatever and to discuss this case with what Yeah No This is a twist off of it where they've got our case We have okay we have fees started under your name You need to shut down Yeah Well my favorite And you've probably gotten these two Are the ones where you know they're automated and their robots but they try to act like they're having a conversation with you Now it's funniest when they leave a message where they're saying how are you And then silence and then they say oh that's good Well I'm calling today Like what Oh yeah Oh they are hilarious Yeah They're all been there Then there's one that's the one about the case suppose publishers clearly always have this way And even a person has even left their day on their answer and say on the gym wind stand up Yeah yeah right Yeah Okay And one last one Energy one This is an apology call from your utility You got all the charge Say $50 or whatever you will be reimbursed and you don't have a gift card Yeah Yeah Call us back Yeah right Wait for that Yeah Then oh and then there's the

"WGN radio Monday night trivia I'm Raleigh James By the way I should have mentioned earlier If you're listening on Friday night it's a replay of Monday night trivia so sit back and enjoy the show but don't call However if it is Monday night wherever you are then absolutely partake 8 8 8 8 7 6 5 5 9 three 88 88 RO LL YE We've got all our bumpers numbers numbers a to Z we've already gotten a winner on Ruth Brown and the royal ex course those were gifts This is an interesting one as far as far as history of the record like the second one I played believe me with Al kooper and bob gaudio in it in 1959 on capital Well this one is a very well known singer songwriter mostly known for being a songwriter and for his involvement with record labels But in this case in 1962 on symbol which was a subsidiary of Sue records we were talking about jugging Murray just the other day who owned Sue This came out And who is he And you can either tell me what his actual name is the guy with all the songwriting credits or the name on the label the pseudonym either one will do But since it's bumper stumpers a to Z and we're working on the letter R the pseudonym first name starts with an R it's what's printed on the symbol 45 So we have a question and play as well in 1970 lest that's the next question This specific sporting related injury sends over 20,000 people to the emergency room every year What is it All right So 8 8 8 8 7 6 5 5 9 three Scott is a first time caller in Lombard Welcome to WGN Rao Scott Our first time caller has left the building I think he thought he knew a bumper from what I see on the screen He didn't but it would have been nice to meet him and I hope you'll call back Scott So James on the south side what do you think Tennis elbow No I meant to ask how are you doing How's everything going Can't complain how about you Oh I'm hanging in there All right Okay that's one Okay I'm going to say this Thanks grant Say what Yeah okay It's a strain of used to be associated with an advantage near the ankle where the ten will come loose And usually with charcoal riders it was associated with the doctor who named it She what happened What happened with the guy would get out of his sense he was so in his status he was now James Did you say calvary writers Yeah All right well now there are over 20,000 people going to the hospital every year How many cavalry riders are out there do you think right now Okay Well that's what Bill ridiculous because what happened was when the Andrew was first his name for the French Doctor Who named it what would happen is when you spraying it because you would have to host your couldn't get out of the store They used to have to take the foot At the ankle not good at all No it's nothing nothing is draconian as that Well now they've got if they don't that doesn't happen but we still have like you have this case number of other sports where there's a lot of running advantage basically a lot of movement of where you're End up feeling a funny way where you end up where you can't very move it because you basically messed up this particular Yeah I should have said just no All right well now that we know that that's not it Next Okay Strain pinky Okay I'm going to say this see I'm going to say okay I ate torn torn labrum No I'm going to say call me back Thanks All right so yeah none of that is right But some of it sounded truly horrific All right we got Tom and Covington Oh man a quinella Welcome back to WGN radio Now how are you tonight Well I was doing better till I heard the extent of those injuries And here I thought it was a sublime question What's up with you Have you heard lately the phones going crazy I got kicked off tonight and bad people the last retailing phones are going nuts Like what I don't understand Now I don't know what's going on but I get calls sometimes when I can't hear anything and talk to somebody later I said well college you couldn't hear anything So get a connection and nobody can hear anything Well phone service these days is probably worth what most of us pay for it And when individuals are on cell phones or on VOIP phones remember that's not full duplex And that's what enables them to deliver the services chiefly as they do And what that means when you're speaking the other person if they try to speak over you will not be heard when they're speaking and you try to speak over them vice versa You will not be heard And so that leads to a number of problems But when you're talking about half duplex I can see all sorts of problems where somebody might not hear someone else even in an ideal situation I don't know It's just seems like the world is going crazy So I guess that's not too unusual Well I don't know what to say about that I certainly would agree But maybe not for the same reasons In any event I found a 1956 record for you because that's what it says you want on the screen You want an audio 1956 and the only question I have I didn't know if I've done this with you before Of course if I had well then you'll know right away But I'm trying to think what I can tell you about them other than they were from Brooklyn And they actually were nurses as far as that goes And this got into the top 20 in February of 1956 Nationally are you ready for them Well we give it a try All right we'll see how you do And what else can I tell you about What you hear at first and then yield aside.

Illinois Democrats Set to OK New Legislative Maps Over Criticism

"Illinois Democrats convening a special session to redraw legislative maps they drew back in May. Now they're incorporating US Census data provided in August. The hope is to head off legal challenges by Republicans Capital Bureau chief Mark Maxwell in Springfield. This latest move is the most glaring evidence yet. The Democrats muscled the first map through just to meet that deadline, and now they're muscling a second real map through if you will to cover their tracks and button up the parts of that first map that could have been shot down in the courts. Republicans argue it's after June 30th that constitutional deadline and by still drawing these maps, it means it should go to a bipartisan commission. Republicans filed federal lawsuits over the first maps.
