-Clark Weber, Author, WLS Radio personality and "Old Rock Crock"

* A fascinating day-by-day recap of all of the notable and memorable rock and roll-related events. Smith's book is the definitive calendar covering any and all of rock and roll's biggest events.

* Ron Smith is Chicago's own Oldies maven. When he worked behind the mic he pulled one extraordinary fact after another that made listening to his presentation rich and interesting. Eight Days A Week provides a resource for anyone to sound just like Ron.
