Chicago radio legend Clark Weber will join the weekend WIND-AM/AM 560 The Answer program "Aging Info Radio" starting this weekend, delivering commentaries. The two-minute weekly segments, entitled "Look at Life with Clark Weber," will have the 82 year-old radio veteran delivering his inspirational perspectives on aging with style.
Clark Weber, often referred to as "Mother Weber's Oldest Son," worked in Chicago radio full-time from 1961 until 2001. He was a top-rated DJ and personality at WLS-AM, WCFL-AM, WMAQ-AM, WIND-AM, WJJD-AM, and WAIT-AM. Today's announcement is a return of sorts to WIND-AM, where he previously worked from 1973-1986.
For ten years, until he decided to end the show last year, Clark Weber hosted the nationally syndicated radio segment "A Senior Moment." These new "Look at Life" segments for "Aging Info Radio" will be very similar to his previous "Senior Moment" shorts.
His first weekly commentary for the show will air this coming Saturday, April 6th. For the always-smiling Weber, it seems appropriate that his first segment will focus on the health benefits of laughter & entertainment.
"Aging Info Radio" is heard each Saturday morning from 6:00am-7:00am on WIND-AM. Clark Weber's segment will air each week at approximately 6:50pm.
Hosted by Sue Billings Zawacki, "Aging Info Radio" is said to be for "boomers and seniors aging, but not growing older." The radio show has been on the air since September 2010, first on WJJG-AM and then on WIND-AM.
This past December, Clark Weber was the special guest
of Sue Billings on an episode of "Aging Info Radio." Not surprisingly, that episode became one of their most popular ones ever. Weber spoke about his over 50 years in radio and offered up advice to listeners. That highly-regarded guest spot led to this new regular segment on each show.
In a statement today, Sue Zawacki said: "I've always thought of Clark Weber as a young boomer, for his youthful perspective about life, so it makes sense to have him share his wonderful stories with my audience. I had Clark on my show as a guest and the response was terrific, so I knew I had to find a way to bring him back. And now, thanks to Presbyterian Homes, his sponsor, Clark will be back every week."
For those who are unable to listen that early on Saturday mornings, each show is later placed up on the "Aging Info Radio" website
in podcast form.
Weber continues to operate his own radio advertising consulting firm, Clark Weber Associates. In 2008, he published a book of his humorous radio stories, entitled "Clark Weber's Rock and Roll Radio: The Fun Years, 1955-1975
