All About T.J. Shanoff...

T.J. Shanoff comes to Murray in the Morning from Chicago's legendary Second City Theater, where he was a writer, director and performer for Second City Communications and Theatricals. Most notably, T.J. has directed the music behind hundreds of shows with performers such as Colin Mocherie, Tim Kazurinsky, Martin Short, and Bill Murray.

T.J. co-wrote "Sing Along Wizard of Oz," which is currently touring the country and likely coming to a theater near you. T.J. also co-created and co-produced "The Roof is On Fiddler" with Saturday Night Live writer Rich Talarico. The 1980's pop music parody of "Fiddler on the Roof" was called "hilarious" by the Chicago Tribune, and played to packed houses at Chicago's Improv Olympic.

A native Chicagoan, T.J. has been heard on WSCR 670-AM "The Score" and has interned at WGN Radio. He is a life-long Cubs fan, and has not yet jumped off the Bulls bandwagon – which are two reasons you can usually find him crying and/or medicated. He thanks you for listening to "Murray in the Morning," because this job is the main reason he can pay his rent on time.

Sports Lounge: October 28
Apparently, the Sports Lounge is a big hit in Japan, because this week's first request comes from Tokyo, prompting a blues song about Barry Bonds and the World Series runners-up, the San Francisco Giants. Also on today's playlist: A funky version of the Kings-Lakers preseason fisticuffs, and a ska song for Week 8 in the NFL. audio Listen
