Jim Leach is a lifelong Springfield resident whose first radio gig was at WMAY -- in 1983! After a stint as a reporter at Channel 20, he rejoined the station part-time in 1990, and began working there full-time in 1995. A year later, he began hosting his daily talk show. These days, Springfield wakes up with Jim and his unique blend of fiery conversation, newsmaking interviews, hard-hitting facts and unbridled opinion. Jim is a multiple winner of the Illinois Broadcasters Association Silver Dome Award and the Illinois Times Readers' Choice Award.

Today's Show: Wednesday, October 10, 2012

We're live downtown this morning, where the big question is: how many garbage-related puns can we use to describe the current status of Springfield's waste-hauling ordinance? (Personal favorite so far: Springfield's trash ordinance heads to the recycling bin. Butthat's primarily because I wrote that one.)

We'll also talk about Mitt Romney giving the order to take down Big Bird; and we'll visit with a write-in candidate for the state legislature.
