Patience King John

While I usually enjoy listening, it irritates me when John is interviewing people on his show and interrupts and or talks over the person. Some advice to his highness... Relax! Let people answer before you speak.

King John Rules!

I’ve loved John Williams since he was a WGN newbie over 20 years ago. His friendly love of people radiates from his voice & makes me feel happy. He’s one of the best WGN radio hosts for interacting with calls & texts. Since his schedule got switched to mornings, I’ve been forced to listen via podcast, but John’s podcast is the highlight of my listening day. Undistracted listening reveals the many little gems of droll wit & humor that John drops into the conversation, that DAILY ranges among multiple topics varying from entertainment, current events, social foibles, Chicago life, sports, parenting, food & much more. Listen, laugh, learn!
