ChicagoNow Radio: October 16, 2010

Former rock DJ, currently a multipurpose Chicago media guy.

Three full hours of ChicagoNow Radio await your ears this Saturday morning on News 720 WGN. Remember, for every half-hour segment you tune in, you save a far-off planet from being destroyed.


What happened when you missed a segment last weekend.



9:00: Newly-published author and general raconteur Stephen Markley is back in our fair city after an extended absence due to his whirlwind book tour. He'll talk about how he's found a new appreciation for Chicago, the uber-hype surrounding The Social Network, and how he's coming to grips with his love for Ben Affleck.


9:30: The Bears just keep on winning, and Mike Burzawa's gotta be feeling torn about their 4-1 start. Are the Bears actually any good? Will they make the postseason in a weaker-than-expected NFC North? Mike spills his insight...and hopefully nothing else. The equipment in the Showcase Studio doesn't react well to liquids.


10:00: So the Chicago Marathon's done and gone and the weather outside is turning just a little bit colder. Time to hunker down, curl up on the couch, and eat for five straight months? Heck, no! David Wallach talks about the post-Marathon hangover and how to stay active throughout the cold Chicago fall and winter.


10:30: Therese Rowley, Ph. D. knows her stuff when it comes to the paranormal. She'll be here to answer any questions you may be to embarrassed to ask someone else face-to-face, plus she'll talk about handling your kids if they think they can communicate with spirits. It's never to early to get in the Halloween spirit at ChicagoNow Radio.

11:00: Our special guest Brent Payne is an SEO expert. I told him I dig "Can't Fight This Feeling Anymore" and "Take It On the Run"...then he looked at me sideways. Brent's here to talk about the secret ways to improve your stature online, particularly with Google searches. He'll also tell you how to bury the embarrassing pics from your drunken birthday night that leaked onto the Internet.


11:30: It's election season. Listen to WGN for one commercial break and you'll hear at least one ominous political advertisment. Michael Ciric is one of our ace politicos who's been watching all of the relevant races to Chicagoans...and their ubiquitous radio and TV ads, too. Talkin' politics for the final half-hour on the big CNR.
