Herb Trix discusses the GOP primary with Dave McKinney.

On Midwest Week, just ten days to go until the Illinois primary, and a lot of candidates are on the ballot, especially for Republicans.

WVIK News Director and Host, Herb Trix talks with his guest this week, Dave McKinney, Government and Politics Reporter for WBEZ, Chicago Public Media.

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
