Bob in Niles with Gary from Evanston Credit Twitter
(WSCR) Few people have impacted The Boers and Bernstein Show and its listeners the way Gary from Evanston did.
Known for his unparalleled dedication to “Who Ya Crappin’?,” Gary passed away in his sleep over the weekend.
Over the 14 year span of The Boers and Bernstein Show, Gary became a staple on the airwaves every Thursday at 5pm. “Hi guys,” he’d emphatically say before the start of each of his methodical Craps.
We’ll always remember Gary for his creative Craps, his Expos fanship and his love for Bonanza.
Rest in peace, Gary.
Make sure you tune into “Who Ya Crappin’?” this Thursday at 5pm to hear a special tribune to Gary from 670 The Score’s Chris Tannehill.
Here’s some reaction from listeners of The Boers and Bernstein Show following Gary’s death.

Awoke to hear about Gary From Evanston. He was a real gentleman. Hope all the B&B longtimers study Loren Green's wiki today. #goexpos—

Saddened to hear that Gary from Evanston has passed away. Really bummed that I won't be hearing that voice anymore. He will be missed.—

Seriously, though, Gary from Evanston's second crap here is one of the all time best, if only for its randomness. youtube.com/watch?feature=…—

Talk shows develop their own culture over time, and regular callers are part of that culture. Farewell, Gary from Evanston. (1 of 2)—
