This morning, Felix and Fingers made a guest appearance on Chicago Radio’s WGN 720AM. Thank you to Piano Trends for the sponsorship and providing the keyboard. And a big thank you (as well) to Mr. Fix it, Lou Manfredini.
If you are wondering how a concept such as WGN Dueling Pianos could work, the answer is quite simple. Follow the main rule of each and every one of our shows; Have FUN!
Mike Sherman played and sang for this event. During one portion of the show, he would start a Christmas song, and a live guest (anyone passing by) would have to chime in and sing the correct lyrics to win a prize. And what could be more appropriate for a prize than a shower head with a built in radio?
As commercial breaks came, Mike would play transition music to create that subtle yet seamless listening experience.
And yes, just as dueling piano players always perform, Mike did take a few requests. He played a bit of Elton John’s, “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” and Pink Floyd’s, “Another Brick In The Wall.”
As for Mr. Fix It’s regular format, he took a lot of questions as usual. For some reason, almost all of them were about fixing toilets.
