JIM PETERIK Unleashes "LIONS" In-Studio with Live Audience


This program originally aired on Tuesday, February 21, 2017

“MIDWEST BEAT with Tom Lounges” MUSICAL GUEST: JIM PETERIK -- Chicago musical icon, singer, songwriter, performer.

TOPIC: The new PRIDE OF LIONS album -- "Fearless."

This edition of "MIDWEST BEAT with Tom Lounges" program featured the welcome return of iconic Chicago songwriter/musician JIM PETERIK to the Lakeshore Radio Studio. The focus of the program was to spotlight the songs from the fifth and latest full length album ("FEARLESS") from Peterik's long-running melodic rock group, PRIDE OF LIONS, which also features Northwest Indiana-born and bred vocalist TOBY HITCHCOCK.   Three tracks from the new album are heard on this show.

Jim also spent his time chatting with host TOM LOUNGES about songwriting, being a brand new grandfather, his family, and some of his other musical projects -- past and present. Jim picked up his acoustic guitar and played a few classic Peterik-penned songs to the delight of a small audience of invited guests.

Formed in 2003, Pride of Lions takes the best elements of the great melodic rock era of the 80’s and updates it with modern production.  A musical renaissance man who keeps busy with a variety of outstanding projects, the very personable Peterik always brings along on his Lakeshore visits -- his guitar, his great sense of humor, colorful stories, and some pretty remarkable music for all to enjoy.
