    Warmer temperatures have to be on the way. For many Chicagoans, it is what we start telling ourselves around this time of year; it's the mantra that helps most of us get through the sometimes brutal and snowy winters. Thoughts of walking or biking on the lakefront, BBQs in the park-any park-, outdoor pools opening and the last days of school.

WXRT - a bit of history you might never hear

SIDETRIP THEATRE (circa late 1972 (prep)/early 73-broadcast) - the very first rock program on WXRT - which was then a foreign language station the rest of the broadcast day. SIDETRIP was hosted by Don Bridges and ran from 12M to 3AM - I know - I was the board op. Others followed like John Platt, Mitch Michaels Salchow, Seth Mason etc....but somehow Don's contribution to change the WXRT landscape from foreign language to underground rock - always gets left untold. Arnie Granat and Jerry Michelson of JAM PRODUCTIONS were also instrumental because initially they were the very first sponsors.

  • I think I heard Brian Auger’s Oblivion Express on this show. Unfortunately the “Mavericks” of back then have morphed into only a couple of hours on Monday night worth of listening on Xrt.
    Thanks for the post.
    Cheers

I was pleased to hear that my blog, "Go Do Good," has for the third time in the last 12 months been recognized as one of the top 20 (in a specific month) by the Chicago Tribune. Let me share you with you another blog (one of the 20 recognized also for outstanding composition) that might be of help to someone you know in PAIN seeking an alternative method other than using opioids like NARCO. The blog is by Chicagoan Judy Marcus. Having helped a senior relative secure a medical marijuana card, I'm familiar with the process but Judy's blog spells it all out plus provides an opportunity to learn more. Please share with those who might want to consider an alternate to opiod Rx. http://www.chicagonow.com/opinionated-woman/2018/04/everything-you-need-to-know-to-buy-medical-marijuana-legally-in-illinois/

    Everything you need to know to buy medical marijuana legally in Illinois
    I've experienced debilitating back pain off and on for over a decade. When the pain gets bad enough, I alternate between taking Aleve and Norco, an opioid which was prescribed for me by an orthopedic surgeon. Norco makes me feel like I'm floating on a lovely white cloud.
