Welcome to the Blog of Rich Samuels, Host of “Anything Goes”

Wednesday, 17 October 2012 | Rich Samuels

On the left is a photo of me (snapped by April 14, 2009, by Chicago Sun-Times photographer Brian Jackson) seemingly yelling at Rod Blagojevich. The former Illinois governor had just exited Chicago’s Dirksen Federal Building where he had entered a “not guilty” plea to a wide variety of corruption charges, including the allegation that he had attempted to market, for personal gain, the seat in the U.S. Senate left vacant when Barack Obama was elected President.

I was part of the media scrum (a correspondent for the “Chicago Tonight” show which airs on WTTW, one of Chicago’s public television stations) that pursued Blago that day: and, to be quite frank, I only appear to be yelling at the disgraced former governor: in reality, I was trying to locate my camera operator who had disappeared into the crowd, nowhere to be seen.

A month short of three years after that picture was taken (it’s recently been recycled as the cover art for Natasha Korecki’s book “Only in Chicago”), Rod Blagojevich began serving a 14 year sentence at the Federal Correctional Center Englewood near Denver. I wasn’t around to witness the denouement of his prosecution: I retired from television journalism at the end of 2009 and, as Garrison Keillor once put it, “moved up to radio”.

Since November of 2010 I’ve been hosting WORT’s “Anything Goes” show, bringing my listeners classical music every Thursday morning between the hours of 5 and 8.

To the greatest extent possible, I try to feature the work of local artists and composers, especially those who are younger. When necessary, I have the capability of recording interviews and performances in the field.

I hope you’ll be able to join me each week. I also hope you can continue to provide WORT with the financial support that makes this kind of programming (which is obviously not for everyone) possible.

When I’m not on the air you can follow me via this blog, via Twitter, Facebook or my personal website.

I could be her worldwide 1.5 billion viewing audience on PBS as the memorable vocal soloist in “Yanni, Live at the Acropolis”. It could be her work in the war-torn jungles of Sierra Leone, West Africa where she met and coached musicians and singers whom she then took on her tour of the US and Canada. Or that fact that she is one of the few classically trained singers with a five octave range who improvises in classical and non-classical styles with both voice and piano, produces, composes, arranges, programs keyboards, and writes lyrics. Come see for yourself as Ms. Koldenhoven performs with our very own Sauk Prairie Youth Choir and performs a portion of her solo repertoire Saturday December 15 7:30 pm at First Baptist Church 518 N.
