An Entertainment Exclusive

EXCLUSIVE: We sat down with singer, songwriter and former tour manager for Larry the Cable Guy, Jeremy McComb, as he was in town kicking off his 2018 Troublemaker Tour at Logan's in Freeport, Illinois. It's pretty crazy the stories that come out of just one tour bus. This is easily one of our favorite interviews. Thanks for hanging with us Jeremy McComb. #whilefreeportwassleeping #notallfbombsarebad #musicyoumissed Watch the extended segment on YouTube.

What the hell is wrong with people.

Music is what feelings sounds like

ENTERTAINMENT: Nice to catch a little of the Tom & Larry show last week in Freeport. Here's a small clip from their show at Logan's this past Friday. It's too bad "Freeport" doesn't focus much on its music and entertainment. So many talented artists, bands and such a rich history (past and present) of music here. Guess we'll have to do something about that too. :)

Star-Studded Networking Event For Youth Sunday

Having access to successful people isn't easily available to youth in Freeport. Being able to walk up and talk openly with someone who plays on a TV series or, who makes their living as a musician, dancer or getting to talk with a successful entrepreneur isn't something Freeport kids have access to every day. The Non-Profit, "This Is Life", started by Natalie Manning's 11 year old son, hopes to give youth that experience this Sunday with a FREE event called Youth Lives Matter. Tons of very special guests, music, performances, food and networking opportunities for our youth of all ages. Here's Natalie with her son (now 16) along with Malasia Jordan (who just opened a new business in the Lincoln Mall) to talk about this Sunday's event.

Put another dime in the Jukebox

Here's a little Friday Flashback for everyone. Who knows the history of this beautiful AMI "High Fidelity" Jukebox? Look familiar to anyone? Maybe from back in the day when you were in school? (hint hint) Thoughts, commnents, memories? Chime in. Such a nice treasure to see during our travels.

All flavors and push ups too

Here's a summertime favorite. Who loves the ice cream man? Won't be long and we'll be hearing this jingle soon.

You won't find Elwood but you will see Dan

May 15, 2018

Some very heartbreaking news tonight in Freeport. We are devastated to learn, as of just a few hours ago, of the passing of Carl Schwartz. Carl's family made the announcement at approximately 4:00 p.m. that Carl passed away with family by his side at his home today. Carl's son Miles wrote, "Today, 05/15/18, Carl was able to take an ambulance ride home from the hospital. About 10-15 minutes after returning to his home, Carl took his last breaths with my two sisters and me holding his hands." Carl was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer on April 24 of this year. While there are no words to express the sadness we feel right now for family and everyone who knew Carl, as a small tribute, we're airing this piece. It in no way attempts to represent Carl's life as a whole, his family, friends or the endless number of people whose lives were touched by this man. It's just a little something from us. Today, life got one of the good ones. Here's to you Carl.

$3 Million Available To Help Grow Downtown

There should be millions of dollars available to prospective downtown business owners and developers in the next few months, as the city of Freeport locked in a $1.05 million dollar bond on Monday. The money will be available for downtown economic growth through loans of up to $100,000 dollars, with micro loans of $5k to $10k also being available, according to the city. The bond, which will be paid for by downtown TIF dollars, was matched by local banks in what should total around $3 Million available to help grow downtown. Have an idea? The city says the money should be available over the next 2-3 months.
