Steve King

 Thank you to Robert Feder for the mention in his column today...

Steve King, the Chicago radio legend who hosted overnights on WGN for more than 25 years, could have been even more famous as a songwriter. In the June edition of Illinois Entertainer King reminisces to Rick Kaempfer about his earlier career as a musician and his brush with fame in 1962 when he wrote the song “Satan Is Her Name.” (Here is the link.) But Mercury Records, Lesley Gore and circumstances came together to thwart his musical stardom. Even so, the song lives on, Kaempfer reports, with at least seven versions of “Satan Is Her Name” on YouTube. “I’m amazed at the life this record has had,” said King.

 Tune in to WGN Radio tonight around 8:30. I'm going to be on the air with John Landecker, talking about my book EveryCubEver.

Looking forward to chatting with him again.
