Dave Gathman joins Left, Right and You!

That’s right! We’ve got a real treat for you today folks! Recently retired 40-year Courier-News reporter Dave Gathman is sitting in with Larry and I for the full hour!

All I can telly you, when it comes to Messrs. Gathman and Jones, Elgin has no secrets. This may well be our best conversation yet!

Mr. Gatham at an earlier time!

Of course, the only place this kind of thing could happen is Left, Right and You, Mondays at 9 a.m. and Thursdays at 3 p.m. with the Smiling Conservative, Larry Jones, and me, the Curmudgeonly Liberal, on WRMN AM1410.

Don’t miss it!

This is the December 7,2015 edition of Left, Right and You!

And we want to Thank Kurt Kojzarek for filling in for Larry and Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon for coming on the show to discuss how he handles an often challenging job.

But why listen to me when you can listen to the show!

Thursday, Larry and I welcome former 40-year Courier-News reporter Dave Gathman. Forty years covering Elgin? I bet he has some stories to tell! Until then…

 

State’s Attorney Joe McMahon today on Left, Right and You!

That’s right! LR&Y supersub Kurt Kojzarek and I will sit down with Joe for the full hour to discuss the many challenges that come with being a State’s Attorney.

That includes:

  • The balance required to be both prosecutor and defense attorney
  • When it’s time for second chances versus bringing the hammer down
  • How he manages to keep a slew of attorneys happy
  • What’s next for the Kane County States Attorney’s office

Of course, that’s Left, Right and You, Mondays at 9 a.m. and Thursdays at 3 p.m. with the Smiling Conservative, Larry Jones, and me, the Curmudgeonly Liberal, on WRMN AM1410. Prepare to be enlightened!

This is the December 3, 2015 edition of Left, Right and You!

 

First, Larry and I want to apologize in advance for the technical problems that are very evident in the first 10 minutes of the show. Apparently the station suffered a number of power surges which fired up a device that started blasting WGN radio in the studio.

Thankfully, without any consideration for my own well being, I quickly leapt into action and disarmed the dastardly device.

Once the danger was averted, Larry and I covered:

  • A heinous and unprovoked attack on the EPD by the Courier-News and Tribune
  • The Tribune’s utter failure in the Laquan McDonald video
  • And we gave 40-year Elgin reporter Dave Gathman a great sendoff

Monday! LR&Y supersub Kurt Kojzarek and I will have an hour long  conversation with Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon. You don’t want to miss that!

Until then…

We’ve got lots to talk about on Left, Right and You!

With the smiling conservative back by my side after a two week break, we’re gonna tackle the tough local topics like:

  • A patently unfair and undeserved attack by two local newspapers on the Elgin Police Department
  • Will the fallout from the Laquan McDonald video force Rahm out and why the Chicago Tribune utterly failed its readers
  • Ace reporter Dave Gathman retires from the Courier-News after 40 years and there’s no one like him left
  • Time permitting, more on the Longmeadow (they’re back) and Edgar County Loons too!

As always, we’ll take your calls at 847-931-1410.

That’s Left, Right and You, Mondays at 9 a.m. and Thursdays at 3 p.m. with the Smiling Conservative, Larry Jones, and me, the Curmudgeonly Liberal, on WRMN AM1410. Don’t miss it!
