The former partner of radio icon Steve Dahl is having a trial on WGN this week from 1-4pm.
Garry also was on WLS-AM partnered with Roe Conn. He walked from that job due to a contract dispute. Later,he had his own show on the FM dial (WCPT?) untill a format change ousted him there. The bottom line is this guy is too damn funny not to be on the air! The only thing he requires is a sidekick to bounce ideas off of. I listened today and he zeroed in on one of my favorite topics, the "THANKS_BY_OWNER" commercials on TV. The folks on those commercials don't look "right". Something is off,Garry tried to pinpoint it today. He also told the weatherguy,Tom Skilling (Evil clone of Roger Treimstra-for you old-timers),he get's a "chubby"
watching him do his "weather-thing" on the news! Not exactly how a Wally Phillips would greet Tom. The fact that 'GN is trying him out is a joke! He should get the job,no questions asked! It is time for WGN to realize this ain't 1968 anymore. Garry is middle-aged hip & relevant. He has me listening!
