Ventriloquist Terry Fator Joins Casual Fridays
On today’s show we chat with Ventriloquist Terry Fator. Terry will be coming to the Venue at Horseshoe Casino in Hammond on July 11.
Also, we are launching a new feature today called the “Region Festival Roundup” where we note an upcoming fest (or two) for each weekend and chat with its organizer. This region and the Chicagoland area is a hotbed for fests this time of year.
We’ll also ask Lakeshore listeners for the best – and worst – aspects or amenities of living in Northwest Indiana? We already have a lengthy list of comments and we’ll chat with a couple of regionites later in the show.
And we’ll chat with Tamye Haugen, founder and CEO of “Paying it Forward Wishes & Heroes,” a social media-based nonprofit organization providing surprise gifts, including birthday cards, to those who are deserving or in need. On Thursday, she surprised Randy Pribble, a special needs man from Hammond who turns 57 today and who works at Van Til’s Supermarket in Hammond. It was very touching and the focus of my newspaper column today.
