John & Bobby

This picture of John Landecker & Bobby Skafish was taken on April Fools Day in 1981. John appeared on WXRT as if he had the gig there. That was part of XRT's annual April Fool's Day stunt.

I heard a portion of that broadcast. I was a senior in high school and a big fan of both guys. If you would have told me that day I'd eventually work with both of them (with Bobby at the Loop for 7 years, and with John at WJMK for ten), I would have been excited beyond words. If you would have told me that I'd also eventually publish both of their books, I never would have believed you.

What a long strange trip its been.
