Regarding your discussion on umbrellas. The answer is a Bubby Umbrella. They keep you drying, When windy just pull down around you more and they never turn inside out. Also a close to your body when walking close to people. :)

Question: I listened to a good portion of the broadcast that carried the Loyola of Chicago 1963 basketball team in the NCAA Championship win on a Chicago - Ft. Wayne radio station that was strong enough to be heard in Arlington, VA. I was using a 6-transistor Japanese radio that I purchased with money I had made from my paper route. I I usually listened at night when I could pick up more distant stations, e.g., WBZ in Boston, and WABC in New York.
Could the station I listened to that night have been WGN, or perhaps another Chicago - Ft. Wayne station with a 3-letter call sign that no longer exists? Thanks for the help!

I had often heard vulgar words and phrases being said in certain recordings of what I had believed to had been recordings of certain radio programs* broadcast by this station and had often wished they had not been said (I had always found vulgar language to had been rude and unnecessary and had believed the programs could had been better without it, especially when they had discussions of subjects that were of great interest to me).
(*"The Nick Digilio Show", "The Steve Cochran Show", "The Bill and Wendy Show", "The John Williams Show", "The Roe Con Show", "The Patti Vasquez Show", "Dean Richards' Sunday Morning", "The Matt Bubala Show", "Saturday Night Special with Amy Guth", "The Dave Plier Show", "The Pete McMurray Show", "The Brian Noonan Show", "The Download with Justin Kaufmann", and "The Kathy and Judy Show").

What's happening to WGN? Steve Cochran will not be missed, (even though I'm not a Trump supporter). John Williams has always been a joy to listen to, even before he left for Minnesota. But where is Steve Bertrand today? Please don't say he's gone too. He's an intelligent, witty, and sensible.member of WGN. His comradery with John and other hosts is always stimulating.
and the Wintrust Business lunch hour was informative and interesting and I looked forward to it. His replacement gets on my nerves and her voice is like nails on a chalkboard. My family and I often mention Steve Bertrand and how much he ads to the programming.
Dropping Kathy/Judy, Bill/Wendy, Gary Meier, Steve & Johnnie (although they do pinch-hit) has dramatically changed WGN... not for the better. At least we still have Lou Manfredini and Dean Richards.Not sure if I will continue listening to what was formerly my favorite radio station.
