This week on ChicagoNow Radio on News 720 WGN with Alex Quigley and Amy Guth, you're going to have to make do with a Quigley-only show. But rest assured, I'll be back September 25, raring to go to keep him in check. This week, catch Alex Quigley from 9 a.m. to noon with these guests:

No Amy?!?! What?? Can Alex alone carry our Saturday Starbucks ladies party with WGN?? First segment....OMG. Seriously?? Analyzing the ENTIRE Blackhawks roster for 20 minutes?!?! Well, at least it gave us time to chat among ourselves and ask the question "What's the worst segment we've listened to??" This one comes in 2nd place only behind Joe the cop's gross weeny reports. The rating = zero out of 5 stars.

Haha!! Look who else is on today's lineup...Joe the cop!! Listening to today's show could be as bad as watching the Jerry Lewis Telethon.

BrokeAss Jen Healy got us talking about our dream jobs!! Restaurant owner....YES!! Video game developer....HELL NO!! Her fantasy job camp sounds insanely-brilliant!! This segment got things rolling!! 4 out of 5 stars!!

Surprise!! Joe the cop's bit about legalizing pot was really interesting. A complex issue to say the least. We aren't sure people on both sides of argument fully explore the multitude of pros and cons of this issue. Here's one thing for sure....moms like us think it's probably OK for others to smoke pot but we DEFINITELY don't want OUR kids to get into it. We give the segment 3.5 stars -- an mellowing grade from us for Joe the cop!!

JenJen said:


Body by Bond's Ashley has a sweet helium voice!! That's worth an extra star itself!! "Everyone knows I dance for the Chicago Bulls" -- oh really?? And isn't it something that Miss Illinois ran a whole 5K?? And "in Chicago, 8 to 9 months out of the year so have to stay inside" -- are you kidding?? Are you really a runner?? OK, that's enough for us. Time for us to go home early because the next segment is about video games.
