Hail To The Chief: This Brings Back Memories
Oh my. What a bizarre newscast we had the other day on Good Morning Quad Cities. What made it so unusual is the fact we had over a half a dozen stories regarding people throwing fish in a contest, a woman falling in love with a possum which she adopted as her pet, a large shark swimming on a beach, even how cows can predict the weather! WHAT?!?!
Yep. Great newscast but I can’t remember in my close to 25 years in television so many animal stories in one newscast.
That definitely brought back memories from when I was a child growing up around the Chicagoland area. Every morning, I would enjoy a hardy breakfast with my family and at the same time listen to the news and of course, the weather on WLS Radio. But, there was a segment that would make you blow up with laughter. ANIMAL STORIES!
Thats right! In the morning with Larry Lujack and Tommy Edwards. Otherwise known as ‘Uncle Lar’ and Lil’ Tommy’. Check it out!
It was a segment based on the latest usual and many cases unusual animal stories across the globe. It only lasted for ten minutes but it was a segment that many listeners waited for. At the same time, It was the most listened to radio show in the morning. Oh, how I miss those days.
