Don't forget that, in addition to this blog, some of the other places we hang out in cyberspace include on, on Facebook, on Twitter, on the SteveAndJohnnieShow's Channel on YouTube, on our Yahoo group and, believe it or not, there is even more with yet more to come.

This week some late Cubs games may have an impact on our start time so adjust your score cards accordingly.

We've still got a couple of people and things pending but, at the moment, here's what our schedule looks like.


Our New Music Monday Magic Laser lands on an album that's been out for a while but she just gave it to him for a birthday present. He really loves it and so does she and both she and him have been playing it at home non-stop and that's why they are bringing "She & Him, Volume Two," the latest album from She & Him, to the show.


We'll check in with Dave Miller, editor of, for a recap of some of the weekend's best concerts including Joan Jett & The Blackhearts.


The Fest for Beatles Fans is back. Joining us for his annual pre-fest visit is Beatles historian and panel discussions moderator Wally Podrazik. Wally is also the co-author of Watching Television.

In addition, we welcome back Kristofer Engelhardt, author of Beatles Deeper Undercover, who will also be appearing at the Fest.


This week, our regular Monday night/Tuesday morning spotlight on "A Little More Les" is being moved to Thursday night/Friday morning when we will remember Les Paul on the one year anniversary of his death.


Several things up in the air for tonight's show so check back in this space and, when they land, you'll know what they are.


On this week's Radio Road Test, we'll check in with one of our long-term testers.

We get all the latest unedited scoops from behind the big and small screens from our own late night showbiz guru, Gino Salomone.


Les Paul was an extraordinary inventive and creative genius who's trailblazing multi-track recording inovations along with pioneering the developement of the solid body electric guitar have been recognized by the National Inventor's Hall Of Fame as well as the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, the National Medal Of Arts and many other awards. His million selling, Grammy award winning records are just part of his enormous legacy. We were very fortunate to be able to count him as a dear friend. So, as his trio remembers him tonight at the Iridium Jazz Club, Les' performance home for many years, tonight we'll mark the one year anniversary of his death and salute this very special man with " a little more Les."

Among Les' friends joining us will be guitarist Frank Vignola, who played with Les and his trio for many years. Also, joining us to make a special announcement about The Les Paul Foundation will be Les' friend and Foundation Trustee, Jeff Salmon.


If it's Friday morning and it's our 3 AM hour that must mean it's time to take care of any of the week's "Unfinished Bidnezz." Questions? Comments? Corrections? Clarifications? Leftover whatever? Now's the time.


No more Lollapalooza? Oh well, there's still a bunch of good stuff to to. We'll sort out the best in our 4 AM hour as we present "The Weekend!

Per usual, expect the unexpected changes and additions to show up in this blog post as we journey through the week. So, you might want to check back here 30 or 50 times a day to make sure you know what they are.
