while moving, I ran across some old tapes of the kids and with them was a tape of the last day of radio broadcasting by Larry Lujack at WLS in Chicago, in August of 1987. I had listened to Dick Biondi and those other idiots on WLS when I was a teenager in Michigan, and came back to WLS when we lived in Indiana years later. Lujack was a pioneer in what he did and how he did it; he was funny, shocking, sarcastic, and very entertaining. He inspired a whole generation of entertainers from the midwest, including David Letterman. If you remember Lar, read more about him here.
If you never heard of him, well, you missed something. I guess he lives in Santa Fe. Good luck, Lar, whatever in the hell you’re up to.
