Clark Weber, 35-year veteran of Chicago radio, returns to the air on WIND- AM’s “Aging Info Radio,” Saturdays at 6 a.m. He provides observations and commentary in a segment called “Look at Life” – how it was, how it has changed and the ways it has stayed the same.
“People fear retirement as an end to their productive lives,” Mr. Weber says. “But those fears are unfounded. Our skills are still valuable and needed.” However, he continues, “be informed about all aspects of retirement life and make a plan for yourself.”
Mr. Weber and his wife Joan are longtime Evanston residents who moved to nearby Westminster Place, a Presbyterian Homes community where they can remain close to their children, church and first great-grandchild.
In addition to the topic of aging, Mr. Weber also speaks about his recent memoir chronicling rock and roll’s golden age: “Clark Weber’s Rock and Roll Radio: 1955 to 1975, The Fun Years.” The book is filled with photos and “behind the scenes” anecdotes and recollections about time spent with an array of stars who include the Beatles, Diana Ross and the Supremes, Barbra Streisand and Janis Joplin.
