CBS RADIO Triple A WXRT/CHICAGO midday host TERRI HEMMERT had just returned from vacation on MONDAY (8/29) and CHICAGO Mayor RAHM EMANUEL called to say hello. During the course of the conversation he was talking about how he trains every morning and how ADELE’s music is an inspiration to him -- especially for SUNDAY’s CHICAGO TRIATHLON.
"At 4:40a [on the way to the event], 'XRT is playing ADELE's 'Rolling in the Deep,' and we do what my security and I call 'the blowup' -- the windows and sunroof go open, we crank it up and we sing along with ADELE. It was a moment of fate for me," EMANUEL said.
He went on to say it helped him to push a little harder to finish in the top 10 of his age group.
The audio of the mayor's conversation with HEMMERT is posted on the WXRT website.
