Hear Steve King (Formerly Of WGN) Sing Rock-And-Roll

August 3, 2013

Many readers of this blog know I was a long-time listener to Steve King and his wife Johnnie Putman on WGN radio.  Recently I discovered recordings from the early years of Steve King when he played guitar and sang rock-and-roll.  Many fans of his will enjoy this treat.

Long before Steve King became one of Chicago’s finest radio talk show hosts, working alongside his wife, Johnnie Putman on WGN-AM’s live & local overnight show, “The Steve and Johnnie Show,” he was a rock & roll DJ at a few radio stations around town. He was most famously part of the WLS-AM roster of DJs in the 70’s, beginning there in 1973. Long before he was spinning records on the radio, he was making them. More than a decade before joining WLS, Steve King was making some early rock and rockabilly records in the Midwest.
