Jesters on the radio 

It's not often big time Rock and Roll radio gives us a spin but here in our home town we are fortunate enough to have a fan and supporter of local music in Richard Milne who is giving us some props on his Local Anesthetic program on WXRT FM 93.1 at 7:30pm Central Sunday November 1st.  It's also streamed on the internet so if you miss it we think you can catch it after the fact. Here's a link. http://wxrt.cbslocal.com/2015/10/29/new-chicago-music-on-this-sunday-nights-local-anesthetic-29/
