Ike Reilly is the fiery pride of Libertyville, Illinois. Over the years, critical acclaim has been effusive. David Carr of the New York Times once wrote, “Ike Reilly is a kind of natural resource, mined from the bedrock of music.” He’s been at this for a while. I’ve known him for almost as long as I’ve done the morning show. On the occasion of my 25th Anniversary Live Broadcast, Ike wrote a song a couple of days before his performance. He starts out by pretending that I had been his partner in crime and tells a tale of rebellion as only Ike Reilly can. Here’s Ike Reilly live on XRT from last Friday.
