Later in the show, Brian returns a phone call from a longtime viewer. Cleatus Murdaugh has been watching the old number nine since the 40’s. Not only that, he’s written more than 8,000 poems. He called in and asked if he could write one about the WGN Morning News, and we said yes. We’ll listen to that. And at the end of the program, we listen to some more viewer voicemails.
