Ramie Is Burning

Ramie Makhlouf produces The Big Show (weekdays 2-6p) & The Usinger's Baseball Post-Game Show on Sportsradio 1250 WSSP.  He is the resident "Chicago Guy" at the station, but just tries to "call 'em like he sees 'em," Saturdays from 2-4p.  Think of the show as the Sportsradio equivalent of "Wrigley North" without the fighting drunks.
