This week on the extra sized 100th episode of the ChicagoVerseUniteD audio podcast: Chris Payne! In an interview recorded at Chicago’s Music Garage, the new home of the Dynasty Podcast network, the former Local 101 host looks back at his career in radio, how he got his start in the industry, and what brought him to Chicago. Payne also reflects on his ten year run as host of the late great Q101′s Local 101, being on air last month to close down the station’s two decade run, and whether Q101′s last broadcast was really his last, as well. Find that podcast below, following video from the interview, in which Payne recalls shrugging off Disturbed‘s David Drainman during the band’s early days.
