Sun-Times photo by John Kim

During the 1990s Chicago country-pop vocalist Jan Terri was working on the side as a limousine driver.
She was featured in the Feb. 12, 1994 issue of the wonderfully named "The Pick-Up Times" American Limousine newsletter with a blurb that begins, "Chauffer Number 240 released her second album 'High Risk'."

Terri is sitting in the lounge of her Harwood Heights high rise near O'Hare International Airport.

She looks at the clip, shakes her head and says, "Yeah, but they didn't know me as my real name....."
