Came across your site, and had to add my two cents. I was a big fan of WLS from the 70’s on down, and the first jock I talked to was Tommy Edwards. Nice guy, great talent, wonderful to listen to, and funny as hell. Larry Lujack & Tommy Edwards-the 70’s & 80’s version of Roe Conn & Garry Meier on WLS Newstalk 89. Wonderful guys and Animal Stories was it for me! Brant Miller -nice guy- he sent me an autographed picture of himself after I wrote him a fan letter and a poem in the early 80’s. I always thought he was good looking and really funny. I gained a lot of respect for him after he had cancer in 1983. I always thought the way he handled his illness was with such style, grace, and humor. Fred Winston- met him in ’83-also a nice guy. Funny as well. Jeff Davis- this guy deserves all of the good things finally happening to him after getting his feet wet being a jock at WLS years ago. I wrote him a fan letter in the 80’s and he sent me an autographed picture of himself and a beautiful handwritten letter that showed just how good at calligraphy he is. I wonder if he still does it. Rich McMillan- the cat’s meow…nice to talk to, good looking, smart, and down to earth. (I can see how good looking he is from the picture on your site!!) Also, I wrote him requesting a picture in the 80’s and he sent me one too. Chuck Britton- this guy had a way of calling me toots that drove me wild! Mike MacDonald- nice, easy to talk to, and very funny. Wonder where he is now? I know he used to also work at O’Hare Airport for American Airlines. I could go on and on…all of the jocks from the 80’s. I just about remember- but these guys are the ones that stick out for me.
Loved your site and keep up the good work!
