    Hi Andrea,
    Glad to hear you support the Lakota Sioux! My son works most of the year in Illinois but spends his summers broadcasting baseball in Sioux Falls. A finer children's charity is nowhere to be found! If I get up to SF this summer, I will bring you some authentic Lakota popcorn — much better than our store brands!
    Tell Garry it's a charity worth considering!! Have a great vacation! Linda L.

    Hi Andrea, My boyfriend and I were at the last CUBS CORNER at Wildfire. We had a wonderful time; beyond our expectations. One problem were are having is the link to see the pictures that we had with De Jesus and Rizzo. We can't get through: WEB PAGE UNAVAIABLE?????? Can you please let me know what I'm doing wrong. My boyfriend is a 29 year season ticket holder and these pictures mean a lot to him.

    I recommended you as the new host for the 6 – 10 AM time slot. I hope that you are asked to fill this spot so I can once again listen to WGN in the mornings.

    I agree you should be the host for the 6-10am time slot. I so enjoy listening to you from 5-6.
