Steve King - Roses Are Red

With today being Valentine's Day, it seemed appropriate to post up an audio segment that has something to do with roses. This is the song "Roses Are Red" by Chicago radio's Steve King, from the early 60's -- before he even started in radio as a rock DJ and was making the rock & roll records that stations played. This is also appropriate because Steve King and his wife Johnnie Putman have been working together on the air on WGN-AM for a very long time. It was on this very day, Valentine's Day, 26 years ago that the two were first paired up on the air on WGN. (Running time: 2:23)
