For over a decade, Chicagoans woke up to Bob "Uncle Bobby" Collins on their radio. The WGN-AM 720 morning radio host's death brought an outpouring of emotion and tears as Chicagoans sought to share their grief. Noted for his folksy radio personality, Collins was as genuine as he seemed and a friend with many. His charitable works, especially with the Salvation Army and WGN's Neediest Kids Fund, were unmatched. Every morning, Uncle Bobby is missed in Chicago. I Remember Bob Collins is a collection of anecdotes about the legendary broadcaster from his friends, fans, fellow broadcasters, and the media. Some notable figures include Wally Phillips, former governor Jim Edgar, Chicago mayor Richard Daley, Tom Collins, as well as many others who share their memories of Bob Collins.
