WendyCity Retro Weird Chicago: Wild Weather We’re Having

0 Posted by - August 26, 2014 - Retro Weird Chicago

It’s 1967 and WGN’s Harry Volkman predicts hot, humid weather as well as heavy snow …and a tornado, to boot.

Volkman served as meteorologist at several stations in Chicago from 1959 until 2004.

(Volkman is also the the father of Eddie Volkman, half of WBBM’s Eddie and JoBo, who most now know from the United Auto Insurance TV ads.)

    O.M.G., Wendy! I remember watching Harry Volkman as a kid, and the thing I remember mostly were all those sissy corsages he would sport on his weather segment…..lol…..this took me back!
