So happy to find Nick!

I loved briefly in Chicago, 2002-2003, and I feel in love with WGN radio and really enjoyed Nick Digilio. He was definitely a really enjoyable part of my weeks. He is just naturally fun to listen to and is a nice guy. I long since moved away from Chicago, but those memories are so with me and I look forward to enjoying his podcast now.
