Tonight is going to be a huge win for Jesus Christ. We are about to set some bound people free in His holy name!

Every Friday we come on air to share with you the hidden book so that you know the seriosity of the times we live in and why you need to accept Jesus as your Lord and savior.
Satan and his crew decided to hook up with the women of earth and produce offspring. Strange detestable abominations. The Sirens, The Nephillum, The old tall tale figures from Greece basically). When God had punished them all for their Mutiny and Crimes against Him, they found their spirits stuck on the earth with no where to go. Today they are still working their evil ways on people. Unsuspecting, ignorant, sleeping victims to satanic attacks!
Lets learn the truth about these sexually perverse spirits and stop them from their midnight molestations and tricks. Lets get rid of the work of Satan! Hallelujah!

A woman online called Donald Trump Xenophobic and myscogenist. She was trying to paint a bigger picture about how humanity should not be labeled into right or wrong desirables or even defined where they belong legally or illegally. She featured a man holding two children on a refugee boat in the Mid East with nowhere to go. It is either standing still or risk death again to move elsewhere. Jon and Jane get into the nitty gritty of down and dragout politics. Jon challenges Jane in ways he should not. Towards the end of the show they discuss wild rice harvesting rights of Ojibwe.
The guys return to discuss the SummerSlam & NXT fallout in what was an intriguing pay-per-view card. Ed makes his case as to why the Sasha Banks-Bayley title bout was the “Match of the Weekend” as well as the Jon Stewart's nWo moment, while Fuz complains why a guy in semi-retirement is still being pushed, with The Undertaker defeating Brock Lesnar in controversial manner. The guys also crap on the Ricardo Mayorga-“Sugar” Shane Mosley boxing pay-per-view boxing match after the pre-fight “brawl” that broke out when Mayorga allegedly touched Mosley's wife. Finally, Ed gets Fuz's perspective on the Robert Griffin III situation as the relationship between the quarterback and his teammates / coaching staff continues to deteriorate.
Alex Gershman with Sasha's Bloc is back to talk their new hit single FEELS LIKE JAZZ!
Jazz collective Sasha’s Bloc solidifies their growing presence on the U.S. music scene with an original album that hearkens back to the Big Jazz Band sound of the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s, and to a performance style that evokes such seminal acts as Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, Count Basie, Scott Joplin, Ella Fitzgerald and more.
Sasha’s Bloc is an amalgam of varied artists, nationalities and experiences, all fueled by bassist and songwriter Alex Gershman to deliver a sound that is consistently big, boisterous, full of spirit and rich in everything that makes jazz linger as an American phenomenon. On Heart On Fire, Gershman is honored to have Grammy-nominated vocalist Jane Monheit perform on multiple tracks.
The group’s core nonet is comprised of Nora Rothman, vocal; Brandon Fields, saxophone; Alex Budman, saxophone, clarinet; Kye Palmer, trumpet, Bob McChesney, trombone; Kevin Winnard, drums; Steve Cotter, guitar; Andy Langham, piano. Guest artists on the upcoming album include: Jane Monheit, vocal; Alvin Chea, vocal; Patrick Tuzzolino, vocal; Princess Fortier, vocal; Glynis Leflore vocal; Octavia Pace vocal; James Lum, banjo; Jason Fabus, accordion; Marc T. Bolin, Tuba. Gershman plays upright bass and electric bass.
The Cubs fell to the Giants today 9-1 and couldn't get much action at the plate against Madison Bumgarner. After dropping 2 of 3 in San Francisco, they head to LA for a 3 game series against the Dodgers. Cubs pitching is an ongoing roller coaster, and injuries to key players have caused manager Joe Maddon to shuffle things up on defense. Can the Cubs take the series from the Dodgers, who are also missing some big names?
Bulls star point guard Derrick Rose has been accused of drugging and raping an ex-girlfriend who filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles on Wednesday. The alleged incident occurred in August of 2013. What do we know, what don't we know, and why are Chicago stars marred by unwanted spotlight this summer?
The Bears' injury woes continue at the wide receiver position. Does Jay Cutler even know the names of the guys he's throwing to in practice? Does he care? And a suspension to a trusted veteran means more high expectations for young Bears on defense, which showed improvement vs the Colts. How will Da Bears perform in their dress rehearsal vs the Bengals?
All this plus your calls @ (347) 327-9183! BECAUSE CHICAGO LOVES SPORTS.
