ChicagoNow Radio: October 2nd, 2010

Alex Quigley

Former rock DJ, currently a multipurpose Chicago media guy.

Join Alex & Amy for a Northwestern Wildcats-shortened show from 9-10:30am Saturday morning on News 720 WGN. (Seriously, 4-0 Wildcats? Great way to get into the Big Ten schedule. Woo!) Tune in the old-school way on your radio or stream the show here. Join the conversation at (312) 591-7200. We'll be packing twice the awesomeness into half the time, much like a dachshund wearing a giraffe costume. 


It's a totally valid metaphor.




9:00am: John and Julie Hammerle are ChicagoNow's resident husband-and-wife television and movie reviewers. (Man, their fights over the remote control must be epic.) They'll tell you what new TV shows on the fall schedule are worth your while. And they'll steer you away from the steaming piles of hot garbage. Plus they'll talk about the Dirtiest Dirty Word in TV..."procedural".


9:30am: There's been a whole lotta chatter about Rahm Emanuel and his quest to become King of, I mean Mayor. Brian C. Thomas gives his take on Rahmbo and other prominent possible candidates, then tells you how to vote in the upcoming election naked. Seriously.


10:00am: It's okay to admit it if you're hopelessy uncrafty. You can't make a toy sled out of popsicle sticks or even glue macaroni to construction paper? We won't judge. Kate Kotler is the DIY Diva, and she's here to help. From using baking soda instead of bleach to getting that cool two-toned hair look on the cheap, Kate's gonna make your life a lil' bit better.


Follow the show on Twitter (@ChicagoNowRadio) and follow Alex (@alexquigley) and Amy (@amyguth), too. Facebook? We got that, homeskillet. Catch us every Saturday morning at 9:00am on News 720 WGN.
