While you are preparing (or waiting for someone else to prepare) the Mother's Day brunch, you might as well turn on the radio. I'll be co-hosting the Mike Nowak Show on WCPT 820-AM from 9 to 11 a.m.
If you're taking your annual Mother's Day trip to the garden center, listen on the car radio, and don't forget to wear your shin guards and football pads. (Also, take cardboard boxes so you can minimize the plastic trays, etc., you have to take home with your plants.)
Mike and I will be talking about gardening, taking gardening questions, etc., and also discussing the latest University of Illinois Extension funding crisis, and checking in with Rick DiMaio about weather for gardeners. The call-in number is 773-763-9278 or you can Tweet Mike at @mikenow or me at @chicagogardener.
The show can also be heard, to varying degrees in various places, at FM 92.5, 92.7 and 99.9. For those of you who don't bother with anything as primitive as a radio, the show streams live at the WCPT website.
See you there and happy Mother's Day.
