Chicago's Walt Parazader on the air

Being a Jock on a two speaker stage longer than most 7-11's keep their doors open. I've always found a uniquely way to introduce bands. Even before MTV... If you weren't featured on American Bandstand, The Midnight Special, Don Kirshner's Rock Concert or Friday Night Videos. Barely a fan of 45's and albums knew the full setup of members making the process of band identification impossible. With Chicago hoisting more members around than a Canadian Ice Hockey team. I had weeks of material to bring to life on those exceptionally long song intros. The one name I loved to pour through those speakers the most was Walt Parazaider. I loved saying his name. It's like a second grader discovering a twelve letter word that only doctors know. I can see why Chicago has been around for 46 years. Is there anybody more humble? More in love with being a musician? They love their fans and aren't afraid to show it
