Pulled Pork and Sweetcorn!
Great stuff. Glad to see Garry has found a home on the radio. It's nice that he brought Elton Jim along for the ride!
I love Garry & Elton they are hilarious!!! I just downloaded all the podcasts so I can make it thru the weekend. Can't wait till Monday when they're on again. ;)
Finally found Garry...again!
Can't understand how a legend like Garry Meier can't find a station that will keep him for more than a couple years. As we all know radio is a shambles due to streaming, mp3s, etc. poor station ownership and management just can't figure it out and none of them are bold enough to hire Garry Meier, Steve Dahl, Buzz Killman, Jay Marvin and others who have a proven fan base in Chicago in particular.
Breaking news, WLS AM has hired Steve Dahl to replace longtime once good talent Roe Conn (which Garry played second banana for years with after breaking up with Dahl) for the 2pm-6pm slot mon thru fri. Starting 11/3/14. This is a bold for WLS AM!
Dahl is in the Broadcasting Hall of Fame and is legend for his antics like "Disco Demolition" which he successfully pulled off with Garry Meier by literally blowing up 1000's of disco records during a double header halftime back in the late 70's in Comiskey Park back in the day. There was so much mayhem the ball field was destroyed and the second game was cancelled!
