Anastasia and I ran some errands today and thank goodness I had the radio tuned to WGN or I would not have had a clue. Some of you may recall, I Listen To Talk Radio Too Much, apparently I've gotten over my addiction. I haven't gotten out much in the last week, so I hadn't heard the news, the Kathy & Judy Show is no more. Two more Chicago radio icons no longer have their own radio program.
From VP/General Manager of WGN Radio Tom Langmyer: “This was a business decision,” Langmyer added. “The media business and the Chicago radio market have changed dramatically in the last few years, including a new method of ratings measurement. WGN needs to respond to these changes, and this is the time to move in a new direction.”

I will miss Kathy & Judy, I found them very entertaining and a wealth of both useful and sometimes unusual information. And yes, I did both enjoy Sex Thursdays, and was incredibly embarrassed listening to it at times.
Anastasia and I listened to part of today's show with shock. And well, ok, I will admit, we wouldn't be Lola & Anastasia if we didn't mock how their voices cracked and how the tears began to flow 20 minutes before the end of the show. Yeah, we are beyotches that way. Nonetheless, we both enjoyed their show and we will miss them. (Don't let Anastasia know, but I did get a little teary, couldn't tell though behind my cool shades. Shh! It's our secret, k?)
If you missed their farewell show, here are some links for today's show. They played some very memorable clips from past shows. It was a nice tribute.

Ok, one more secret, I always really wanted to go on one of Kathy & Judy's Girlfriends Weekends. They always sounded like so much fun!
Good Luck Kathy & Judy!
It's party time in Weirdville!
