I turn the tables on radio legends Steve King and Johnnie Putman and interview them, and get really personal.

Even if you listened to S & J for years on WGN – you will learn more about the radio sweethearts (not sure they’ll like that description).

We also talk about “A Little More Les,” S & J’s loving tribute to the great Les Paul. It turns out that Les was inspiration not only for his technical musical innovations but for persevering when others may not have. They talk about how they became instant pals, after a tragedy in Steve’s life. S & J reveal backstage secrets, a few not even in their book!
