On today’s show, we continue that parade of stars by chatting with classic crooner Bobby Vinton. That’s right, the Polish Prince, who’s now 79 and living in Florida, will be performing June 7 at the Blue Chip Casino in Michigan City.
Bobby’s more popular and enduring songs include “Melody of Love” and “Roses are Red”.
Also on today’s show we’ll talk in the studio with Mario Ponce, one of the food geniuses behind Takito Kitchen in Chicago, a cutting edge eatery on North Division that redefines what a taco is, among other things. We dined at his hip, trendy place and came away very impressed. And so will you after more about it.
We’ll also talk with Karen Maravilla (PRONOUNCED Mara-Vea), owner of “It’s Just Serendipity” – an eclectic store in Hammond – and the legendary El Taco Real Restaurant in that city, who will tell us about the Hammond Art Tour that is being held this Saturday. The buzzword around the region is: “Hammond IS Happening!” and we’ll tell Lakeshore listeners why.
Plus, we hear that thousands of patrons at Hot Doug’s in Chicago are waiting up to four hours – four hours! – for a hot dog or meal. What would YOU wait that long for? Only one thing for me. I’ll share it later in the show.
Also later in the show, we’ll tell you how much the average American spends on fast food each year. The bad news: It’s a lot. The good news: It’s less than what Jerry spends, by far.
