eddie hubbard jack brickhouse

My dad and his Texas Cowgirls were  recurrent interviewed  guests on the  WGN Chicago radio show with Eddie Hubbard and Jack Brickhouse . The Jack and Eddie Show sometimes live from the Isbell Supper Club hotels or games in the fifties.. Jack was the voice over for the Cubs and play by play man for the Bears along side Irv Kupicnet . Irv was a household name aroung our kitchen table a guy my dad could go to. Eddie was on in the am then the show with Jack in the afternoons evenings . Eddie  was host of The WGN  Barn Dance from 1960-1969 on Saturday nights. My dads relationship with Pee Wee King and other western musicians were his tie to that popular program ..
