  No, not that Paul Brian!

From the Chicago Auto Show's "You might not know this" files:  Did you know that the auto show's media director, Paul Brian, has been the host of a weekly automotive radio show heard every Saturday morning on the legendary WLS AM890 in Chicago? Yup! Every week for the past 14 years from 8-9 a.m. he's there talking to industry representatives--everyone from manufacturer CEOs and executives to listeners who like to hear Paul's impressions of whatever might be in either his driveway that week--or his impression of a new vehicle he got while on a launch trip. It's pretty darn fun radio, that's very "listenable" to car geeks and non-geeks alike. You can even download podcasts (subscribe to them, too, if you like!) or listen via Internet streaming via www.WLSAM.com  Paul's a serious commentator with a fairly non-serious, yet informative approach.

So with the next Chicago Auto Show looming large on the horizon, Paul thought it'd be apropos to get a more global (if not a little twisted in our own special way) perspective of what's going on in the world of "stuff with wheels." To that end: Every week we'll go somewhere around the world and get that added, special perspective. Remember, you heard it here first--and will come back from more every week after our Drive Chicago Radio show on WLS AM890 every Saturday morning at 8. Nowhere do you get coverage like this, we promise you!

Stop back every week. Share with your friends. Let them know how you know you're SO inside the auto game. Never lose another game of Automotive Trivial Pursuit again. With information like this at your fingertips, you'll never be at a loss--and who'd argue with your answer?!
