The Sven Halloween season of personal appearances and media visits rolls on:
Friday night, October 21, it’s another visit with yet another of our WGN radio friends- the foxy and funny Patti Vasquez has invited Sven (and /or his alter ego Rich Koz) to drop by her “Pretty Late” show! We’ll be joining her in the WGN showcase studio just after 11 pm central time- you can hear WGN all over the country at 720 AM.
On Saturday, October 22- join us for our annual visit to Elgin’s “Nightmare on Chicago Street”- as the city of Elgin, IL is once again the site of a zombie infestation! Show up to help fortify the downtown area and save the city! I’ll be signing autographs and posing for pictures in the “safe zone” starting at 8:30 – and then, make a special appearance to help crown the winners of the annual costume contest ( which begins around 9:45 ) on stage! This is always an amazing event, with spectacular costumes, bands, vendors, food – and, of course, the errant zombies who prowl the streets !

On Friday night, October 28th, we’ll visit the Skokie Skatium Ice Arena, located at 9300 Weber Park Place in Skokie, for a special Halloween public skate and costume contest ! Bring the whole family, hit the ice for two hours of open skating, and meet me for autographs and photos! For more info, call 847- 674-1500 ext. 2900.
On Saturday, October 29 – we return to Volo, IL for our annual visit to the Volo Auto Museum! Spend the entire day there, check out the fantastic cars, from collector’s specials to TV and movie vehicles- enjoy several buildings of antiques and collectibles, plus food and drink, and free haunted train tours- and, meet me from 11 am to 2 pm! Get information at www.volocars.com
We also have a couple private corporate events which are not open to the general public- but check back here, just in case we have any last minute additions.
I’m scheduled to show up sometime during the second hour of the WCIU “You and Me” morning show on Halloween Monday- as well as kicking off the Bears game kick-off show -“Monday Football Now”-on WCIU that evening at 6:30 pm! And, earlier that day- I just can’t keep away from WGN radio- we’re talking with my longtime friends Bill Leff and Wendy Snyder in our traditional Halloween visit to their midday show at 11 am on Halloween Monday! Again, WGN is 720 on the AM dial.
Again, keep checking back here for appearances and media events to be added as they approach- and- there could be some last-minute additions to our schedule!
Remember-you can now see the Svengoolie original coffin and set pieces EVERY DAY at the Museum of Broadcast Communications in Chicago! Go to www.museum.tv for information on visiting the museum.
