Bobby Skafish in Indiana

Nice piece in today's about Bobby Skafish and his new book. Thanks so much to Tom Lounges for this review of Bobby's book "We Have Company: Four Decades of Rock and Roll Encounters"...

Veteran Chicagoland air personality Bobby Skafish, who spent four high-profile decades on the radio dial in Chicago (WXRT, WLUP, WKQX, WDRV), has released his first book -- "We Have Company: Four Decades of Rock and Roll Encounters" (Eckhartz Press) -- and is doing a book signing from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday at Griffith's Wildrose Brewing (1104 E. Main St.).

Some terrific interviews and behind-the scenes stories are included in his 312-page collection of famous chats with stars like David Bowie, Sting, Robert Plant, Donald Fagen, Rod Stewart and others.

Some Times readers may not know of Skafish's strong Region roots. He grew up in Hammond and began his radio journey at Crown Point's WFLM-104fm where he helped launch the original "Night Rock" radio program this columnist ultimately took over years later. He is also a cousin to East Chicago punk rock icon, Jim Skafish.

Bobby Skafish is a top shelf interviewer and radio host whose deep knowledge and passion for popular music is second to none. More:
