    I still think Ed was one of the best politcal insiders WLS ever had.

    I would like to learn the birthdate of Ed Vrdolyak. One of my harmless retirement hobbies is keeping a list of prominent people who were born in 1937, the same year I was born. So I’d like to know the month and day of Mr. Vrdolyak’s birth in 1937, to add to the list of several hundred other 1937ers. Thanks.

    Mr. Vrdolyak is a class act. He has always been generous with his time and courteous to everyone he meets. His three sons are a testament to his character as he is a devoted family man through and through.
