Good morning and welcome to this week's Insider Weekend Guide. Hope you all had a great 4th of July weekend. So many fun events are happening this weekend and a number of great neighborhood fests are heading our way soon. So we're providing an update to those neighborhood fests so you have plenty of notice. But that's not all. This week we are also featuring a very special interview we conducted recently with 93XRT DJ Richard Milne. This year Richard will be celebrating 25 years with XRT and 23 years in Wicker Park. We're very lucky to have him. See below for the details. And thanks, as always, for joining us.
