The World News Center Has Too Many Comic Books?

This week, Bill McCormick from the World News Center responds to some listener e-mails, talks about more science fiction turned science fact, and how one could easily spend $1000 month to keep up with all of the new comic books.

John Fugelsang

Comedian and actor John Fugelsang called in to discuss his new tv show Page Six TV, shared stories of interviewing George Harrison and Paul McCartney, and talked about his upcoming appearance in Chicago at the Athenaeum Theatre as part of the “Sexy Liberal Comedy Tour.”

Lindsay Arnold

Lindsay Arnold returned to the show to talk about the new season of “Dancing With The Stars,” her new partner Jordan Fisher, and of course about her relationship with Grandpa David Ross.

 

Amy Landecker

Chicago’s own Amy Landecker called in to discuss season 4 of the Emmy award-winning series Transparent, which is now available on Amazon Prime Video.

Behind the Scenes at the World News Center

Bill McCormick called in for his weekly visit from the World News Center and talked about things one really should not talk about, along with veiled hints to the new Justice League (due to non-disclosure agreements).  We really should not have aired this segment and under no circumstances should you listen to it.

Dylan Jones

Dylan Jones is a multi-award-winning editor of British GQ magazine and was awarded an OBE in 2013 for services to publishing.  (Sir) Dylan called in to discuss his new book David Bowie: A Life.

 

Mike Schmidt

MLB Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt called into talk about his serious battle with skin cancer (Stage 3 Melanoma) and a new initiative from CancerCare, “Your Cancer Game Plan.”  It was also a thrill to talk to Mike about baseball memories of him always destroying my Cubs and his thoughts on whether the Cubs can repeat.

Donald Driver

In addition to being a “Dancing With The Stars Champion,” Donald Driver played 14 seasons with the Green Bay Packers, went to four Pro Bowls, and caught 64 touchdowns (I think 62 of them against the Bears).  Donald called in to discuss his book The 3D Body Revolution.  I tried talking Donald out of retirement since the Bears could use a wideout, but I failed.  Still, I had to ask.

Dennis Quaid

Dennis Quaid called in to talk about his band “Dennis Quaid and the Sharks,” who are coming to the Chicago area for a show at the Arcada Theatre in St. Charles on September 30.
