Veteran broadcaster and Oak Park resident Carl Grapentine will be back at work Monday after five weeks recuperating from a quadriceps tendon surgery on both legs last November.

Monday, Feb. 2 is also Groundhog Day and like the groundhog, "I'll pop out of my hole to return to the morning program!" the WFMT FM 98.7 radio host wrote on Facebook yesterday along with a twinkling photo of a groundhog.

Chief announcer Peter van de Graaff has been filling in for Grapentine since he's been away.

He has indeed been missed, and if Carl sees his shadow there will be six more weeks of winter!
