Fox News is a Disgrace

Free Kicks--CoronaVirus

All Premier League football is suspended until April 3rd, so this might be our last Free Kicks episode for a while.

St. Patrick's Day

So, Chicago isn't painting the river green this year, and we aren't having a St. Patrick's Day parade, but your good pals Rick and Dave will be bringing Ireland to you via podcast. We interviewed Irish musician Timothy O'Shea today, and he played us some truly beautiful Irish folk songs. The show drops on Saturday. Be sure to check it out in the safe environs of your own home. Thanks to Mike Shevlin for lining this up for us. We really enjoyed it.

Johnny Kaempfer

Had a busy day yesterday, but not too busy to spend the evening with son #2, Johnny Kaempfer. He turned 22 years old yesterday.

We all went out to dinner as a family (for maybe the last time in a long time) and saluted the young lad. He has turned into a very caring, big-hearted man. I'm very proud of him.

Why Don't You Wash Your Hands?

The latest parody song from John Records Landecker is called "Why Don't You Wash Your Hands" and you can probably guess what it's about. Vocals by Bob Stroud. Produced by Matt Bisbee. Great job, guys!

Inside Melania

The best part of being a publisher is the moment that an author gets to hold their book for the very first time. "Inside Melania" author Lauren LoGuidice had that moment this week. Congrats to her! (The book is available here)

Minutia Men--Mitchell, Movies & Missing Millions

Rick and Dave interview sportswriter and author Fred Mitchell, and discuss a really unfortunate cleanup, a really inappropriate use of a public library, and Rick’s brush with football Hall of Famer Brian Urlacher. [EP170]

You can listen to it here.

Clark Weber

Sorry to hear about the passing of Clark Weber. I worked with Clark for several years at WJMK/WJJD. He was such a nice man and had some incredible stories about the early days of rock and roll and rock radio. His story about the Beatles at Comiskey Park is one I’ve retold many times. RIP Clark. You will be missed.

Here is my 2007 interview with Clark. He tells the Beatles story and a few other great ones.
