Jonny Imerman, The Sole Revival and The Real Elf

This week on WGN Radio, esteemed producer Kate Gibson and I got off to a late start even though we were super excited for the show! Our Blackhawks were (pats them on the head) “trying very hard” on the west coast, so we didn’t make it onto the air until almost 1 a.m. We passed […]
