The legendary Bill Cosby is returning to Rockford in October to play the Coronado Performing Arts Center.

The last time he was through town, Riley & I had the opportunity to conduct an extended interview. He was generous with his time and shared many incredible stories. I actually saw him in the Dells a couple of years ago, and you know what? He's still got it.

When I was growing up, I watched "Bill Cosby: Himself" over and over again. Now, of course, I have children of my own so stuff like this makes even more sense:

Bill Cosby's "Far From Finished Tour" hits the Stateline area on Friday, October 3rd. Tickets go on sale May 9 at 10 a.m.

However...tune in to "Riley & Scot" all next week, as we'll have "Win 'Em Before You Can Buy 'Em" tickets to give away. Just in case you don't win, you'll also want to sign up for the WROK Newsletter. Some time in the next few days we'll be sending a pre-sale password that you can use to buy tickets before they're on sale to the general public.
