I'm on-air overnights on WLIT. I've been broadcasting in Chicagoland for over 25 years... wow that's a long time. In addition to my on-air shift, I am also the Production Director, and do afternoon traffic reports. I have two sons, the oldest is a music education major at Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington(he plays sax and violin.) And the youngest is a sophmore in high school and plays sax and guitar.
I'm not a huge baseball fan (unless I can get good seats at the old ballpark) but I never miss watching a Bears game. If I'm going to be away, I'll record it and watch it later that day or night!
I feel priveliged to be one of two male DJs on the air staff and am happy to provide some testosterone to the Lite.
With the arrival of October and seeing Halloween decorations in the stores, I'm reminded that Halloween will be very different this year.
For the first time our kids are either away at college or too old to to really celebrate Halloween. That means my wife won't be sewing those amazing costumes she used to make(we still have them stored away in the basement) or creating treats like spider cookies and "mummy fingers" for the halloween party at our house.
I won't be asked to put together a spooky CD or rent some scary movies for the party either. And who is going to decorate the house?
One thing though will stay the same...I will not give up carving a scary pumpkin or two to put in the window for the trick or treaters!!
