Late-Night Listening with Bob & Ron

So I’m doing some late-night listening here — hey, sometimes I just don’t feel like hittin’ the sack so early on a Saturday night — and I came across a radio show I never knew existed: Bob & Ron via 105.9 WCKG.

The Bob & Ron show is based here in Chicago, runs in the late-night slot on Saturday nights (midnight to 5AM), and features a ton of great live music. It looks like the first few hours is called “The Phishing Report,” so Phish Friday fans will find plenty to work with there. But they continue to play great tunes until 5AM.

They’re currently cracking me up with a version of the show based loosely on a “tax-season” theme. Phish’s “Fluffhead” is on and the tax connection is apparently the “banker” with the “powerful pills.”

I love making discoveries like these, especially when they are Chicago-themed, and of the latenight variety. I honestly don’t listen to the regular old radio quite enough.

There’s still plenty out there, I guess you just have to find it.

Tune in

    Thanks for the plug. We were just told about it. That is cool that you put the link up for us.
    Our format is from Midnight until 2:00am (late night Saturday, early Sunday, or as we call it..Satunday) then from 2:00am until 5:00am we do The Record Club. On The Record Club we play things from our record collections. Yes! Vinyl on the radio. So you will definitely not hear the same old crap one usually associates with radio.
    Thanks for helping spread the word, slowly but surely. After all The Phishing report has been on for over six years, and The Record Club for over two. Welcome to the club, you are now a member since 2007.

    May Your Mellow Never Be Harshed,
