Dan Carcillo has been known to make waves on the ice as an NHL agitator. Soon, he'll be on the airwaves.
Carcillo, Blackhawks winger, joins the WGN Radio lineup Friday with "The Bomb Shelter," a one-hour show focusing on the 26-year-old's love of all kinds of music, according to the station. It will feature song clips, musical history, personal anecdotes, special guests and more.
During Friday's premiere, Carcillo will interview his father, Gino, about the history of the Carcillo family emigrating from Italy to Canada and play Italian music.
"I'm proud to be a member of the Blackhawks with the chance to broadcast a show on WGN Radio in the great city of Chicago," Carcillo said. "I've always been fascinated with songs and songwriters that tell a story and this will be an amazing outlet to tell my own story through music. When I first walked into the WGN Radio music vault and saw all that classic vinyl, I was like a kid in a candy shop."
Future "Bomb Shelter" shows will feature Chicago's musical roots and history, blues, rock and even some of Carcillo's teammates.
