Are you old enough to remember school drives for money for the Red Cross,
TB, the American Lung Association and UNICEF? You brought in your dimes and
quarters and got a tin plate pin for donating. The UNICEF stuff often happened
at Halloween and if you trick or treated for them in the Midwest, folks often
did not like kids asking for money instead of candy! So we had these little
special donation cans which identified us as UNICEF volunteers, which we
could not open. Still it did not work well in IL. We took candy anyway and
did the UNICEF thing only once or twice and stopped volunteering.

at Ike's, The Coney I-lander and here in Cincinnati at the numerous Skyline
All are unique in their own way. The thing that sets Skyline apart from the
others is that their (secret) recipe includes cocoa and cinnamon. That may
sound a bit gross. But the flavor of the chili has less 'bite' to it. Also,
Skyline uses a mild Wisconsin cheddar cheese for its topping.
If you order a 'three way' in Cincinnati (in a chili parlor, not to an undercover
cop), you get chili and cheese over spaghetti. Avoid the four way (onions)
and five way (onions and beans) and your co-workers will thank you later.
I'd invite any of the good folks at Tulsa TV Memories to dine with me at
a Skyline parlor here in Cincinnati. But, I'll only pick up the tab if your

low-spice chili with very pleasant flavors that are difficult to identify.
It eats well alone with saltines, yet stands-up well to pasta in the popular
I think the mild character of the chili may merely be a basic component of
the larger dining experience at Ike's. I'm not sure that the taste is the
same when consumed elsewhere. There's something about the sparse furnishings,
the aromas that greet you when you enter, mysterious cooks in the kitchen,
the waxed-paper "tubes" of saltines and the variety of seasonings on the
Formica tables that make it special: the hot sauce, cayenne, black pepper
and that large shaker of chili powder... all those things that allow us to
make the chili very special to each of us. Gee, I remember when you ordered
a Coke in the bottle...
Maybe I'll try to replicate the chili again... but it will never taste the

1000) is still a powerhouse AM--not with those call letters--owned by Disney,
not the unions anymore, coming in clearly at nights here in Kornfield Kounty.
Not that its ESPN programming is much to listen to.
There was a time when ABC's WLS killer nighttime signal showed up in something
like 40 different Arbitron markets at night--including being something like
#2 or 3 in Atlanta. Johh "Records is truly my middle name" Landecker is the
DJ I recall.
There was a small boomlet a few years ago where a few blowtorch AM's tried
going back to the 50's and 60's (reverb, heritage jocks). Alas, the audience
had moved on, and AM is largely a wasteland of syndicated yak, religious,
and foreign language programming. A few signals hold out in this end of the
country (740 in Toronto, which CBC gave up and is my current fave--dooming
it to ignoble death) but radio here (and in the rest of the world I've been
to of late) is an FM thing.
My book, which is in glorious black and white AM mono, will hopefully be
finished by the end of November and then comes the real fun, finding an agent,

While sorting stuff, came across a book on old-time Chicago radio that I

In the 70s, ownership changed and they went Christian (long before Contemp
Christian music hit) and kind of dropped off the ratings radar.
The station has been sold again and became some low-power AM sports station,
maybe just repeating ESPN Ocho or something. But way, way back when, it was
WENR radio and famous for early day news coverage.
In all of my lifetime, had known it only as WCFL till it became WCFC (We're
