I even have some NEW segues written.... I'll use most of the ones from last year as well.

A couple of last year's segues:

[Evanescence's "Bring Me To Life" in the background] ... Bringing to life more of your forgotten favorites, CD Showcase.

[steven Curtis Chapman's "Dive" in the background] ... Diving into more of your favorite hits, country and otherwise, because a song remembers when on CD Showcase.

Three potential NEW segues for THIS year:

[statler Brother's original "Don't Wait On Me"] "When the lights go on at Wrigley Field..." ... You don't have to wait any longer for the lights to go on at Chicago's Wrigley Field ... and you shouldn't have to wait to hear your favorite mix of songs, country and otherwise ... CD Showcase

[John Mayer's "Route 66" in the background] ... Getting your kicks on the airwave's nostalgic highway, CD Showcase on WRMN 1410 AM Elgin.

[bryan Adam's "Summer of 69" in the background] ... Musical memories of summers and other seasons gone by, CD Showcase on WRMN 1410 AM Elgin.

I mentioned I'll give the link to listen live at a later date ... I'll also give the Email address to which you can send Emails before/during/after each radio show as well :).

Mike Danahey of Elgin's _The CourierNews_ newspaper will do a feature article in the coming weeks on WRMN, highlighting my upcoming radio show, "CD Showcase". It is my understanding that the article will be available on the newspaper's website ... and, once I receive it, I will post a link directly to the article.


I cannot wait until April, what with baseball on the way and getting my older 4 MCs out for the spring/summer/fall.

And, of course, I'm looking forward to my radio show. He he ... have you sensed how excited I am about this?!?!?!?!
