Wrigley Field Month – Rob Bleetstein & Bob Krause
About the Episode
Episode Release Date: July 20th, 2020
We have two weeks left in our month of Wrigley-centric episodes and that means we’re going to finish up strong! This week we invite two guests onto the show, one is the voice of Sirius XM’s Pearl Jam Radio Rob Bleetstein and the other is a native of Wrigleyville Bob Krause.
Rob has of course been to hundreds of shows during his time following the band as a fan and covering them for Sirius. He has great memories of being at these Wrigley shows, one especially coming from the 2013 show where the rain delay (and current state) could’ve potentially caused major challenges if his show had to go back on air. He’ll talk about the experience from all 3 shows and share some of his favorite venues and cities he’s seen the band in.
Bob Krause, whom Rob dubs the mayor of Chicago, hosted a Real World of Wrigley House in 2016 and 2018 that held 35 fans in his Wrigleyville apartment for a full weekend of partying, BBQ and of course Pearl Jam. Being a Cubs season ticket holder he’ll talk about how special it was for the band to play in 2016 when the team was on their magical run to win the World Series, as well as an opportunity where he got to spend a game in the bleachers with both Eddie Vedder and Pete Townshend.
