Rockford's new mayor, Tom McNamara, shows Double T how to get dressed up.

Tom McNamara, Rockford's new mayor, will officially take office on May 1st. After being elected, he stopped by 96.7 The Eagle to be the first official guest on Double T Mornings.

I don't get dressed up very often. It's one of the perks of working in radio. I wear fancy clothes so infrequently, I never learned how to tie a tie.

I had my Dad do it for me several years ago. When I take it off, i just loosen it up and slip it over my head. Then when I need it, I put it over my head and tighten it up. That system seems to work well.

I always told myself, someday I will learn how to tie a tie. I figured today would be a good day to do it.

Rockford's new mayor, Tom McNamara, is coming in for a visit. He has to dress up a lot for mayor type functions. I'll ask him to teach me. He was willing to help.

I hope you enjoy the video of the mayor teaching me how to tie a tie.
