WGN Morning News Not Prepared For Ty Segall

The WGN Morning News is famous in Chicago for its carefree spirit and almost goofy broadcasts, but nothing could have prepared Pat Tomasulo, Larry Potash, and Robin Baumgarten for Ty Segall and The Muggers.

The performance can only be described as a throwback to the UHF days of locals broadcast with a baby-faced garage rock twist. Baumgarten’s reaction sums up the 3-minutes and 20-seconds interpretive performance.


Ty Segall and The Muggers are on the tail end of their ‘Emotional Mugger’ tour in support of his latest album available from Drag City.

Drag City is a Chicago-based independent record label that specializes in experimental indie rock acts.
