Yet another week when the Blackhawk's continuing success as they make their run for the Stanley Cup means we're switching a few things around and our Tuesday night/Wednesday morning start time will be a bit later than usual. The good news is, the Blackhawks are having fun and so are we. Here's how things are shaping up around our rink this week:


Our New Music Monday Magic Laser lands on Jeff Becks's "Emotion and Commotion." Yes, this album has been out for a couple of weeks but, we really think, it's a better album than some of the critics reviews would lead you to believe. So, we thought we'd share it with you and let you decide for yourself.


Usually, our monthly visit with the car experts from Consumer Guide Automotive happens on our Tuesday night/Wednesday morning show. However, with the Blackhawks late Tuesday night game moving our Tuesday night/Wednesday morning start time back, we all agreed that it might be a good idea to jump start our car night one night ahead. So, joining us tonight are Consumer Guide's Publisher Frank Peiler and Consumer Guide's Associate Publisher Tom Appel. We'll get the latest on the cars they've been testing and answer your new and used car questions.

Also, if you call in with a VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) for that used car you're thinking about buying, you'll get a free vehicle history report so you'll know the car's condition before you sign on the dotted line.

And remember, you can always add to your automotive research by checking our Radio Road Test Audio Archives for past reviews.


For many years, as our Monday night segued into the wee hours of Tuesday morning, we'd check to see who our friend Les Paul had been jamming with at the Iridium Jazz Club, in New York. Now and then Les would surprise us with a call after his show. Once again, tonight we'll take a few minutes and remember the amazing Les Paul and his legacy as we revisit part of an interview, a story, a laugh or, most importantly, his music and listen to "A Little More Les."


We start at 1 AM due to Chicago Blackhawk Playoff Hockey!

We'll preview the small screen's endings and new beginnings as we talk TV with Tim Cuprisin, Media Columnist for
