What’s Up With Lin?

WXRT Radio Chicago – On-Air Personality Bios – Lin Brehmer

On my way in this morning, I was listening to Lin Brehmer on WXRT and caught the tail end of his show. For some reason, Terri Hemmert was attempting to lure him back into the studio from the window ledge. All very funny, but there was an undercurrent of something that sounded like Management was screwing around with the talent. I have no idea if this was just silly morning schtick, or if Lin’s been let go, because I missed all but the last 5 minutes.

The “bumper” song to end Lin’s shift and begin Terri’s was Moby’s Spiders:

We just had to ask
Maybe some one out of heaven
Would hear us down here

We couldn’t bear to stand
How the people leave us waiting
For something up there

Oh, why did you leave?
Why won’t you come?
And save us again?

Come back to us spiders
Come uncrush my hands
Let peace and beauty reign
And bring us love again, like you can

So, if anyone knows what was really going on – radio gag or radio guy gagged – please let me know.

  1. Also, my sister said that his wife is/was pregnant with twins, but nothing has been mentioned since the announcement. Hope all is well with the Brehmer Bunch!

  2. I guess I was snookered by the announcement I heard, because of course Lin has been in fine form since then. I really should tune in earlier, but I only listen during my (very short) commute, and I don’t really want to get to work that much earlier! 😉
