. . . Three Fifty Seven, Dick Saint John in Chicago . . .

[Description by Uncle Ricky]

Dick Shannon actually calls himself Dick St. John once in this aircheck, and we don't know why.

This is overnight at WCFL, between 3 and 4 AM, and there's a newscast featuring many WCFL news voices, each voice with a different story, recorded earlier, but very effective. It keeps the newscast fresh and moving forward. And the Superstars are making winners at Super CFL.

This hour ends with a few minutes of a WCFL Public Affairs program, Community Action, with Public Affairs Director Lillian Thomas. The topic of discussion is Cabrini Green, a Chicago Public Housing project with big problems that have still not been resolved in 2015.

As with so many of contributor Tom Konard's WCFL studio recordings, this one is exceptionally clean and sounds much better than it did on nearly any radio receiver of the time.
