Chicago's next great park? Hardly

...of Chicago's business district, to be connected via a new Red Line station at 15th and Clark, new roads, and bike lanes...

    Chicago's next great park? Hardly
    On a warm afternoon in May, a pair of geese and their gaggle of goslings waddle single file over broken pavement and shaggy patches of weeds on their journey to the edge of the Chicago River. Elsewhere, red-winged blackbirds chirp their nasally songs while yellow butterflies flutter over wildflowers peeking through piles of rubble.

    Warmer temperatures have to be on the way. For many Chicagoans, it is what we start telling ourselves around this time of year; it's the mantra that helps most of us get through the sometimes brutal and snowy winters. Thoughts of walking or biking on the lakefront, BBQs in the park-any park-, outdoor pools opening and the last days of school.

WXRT - a bit of history you might never hear

SIDETRIP THEATRE (circa late 1972 (prep)/early 73-broadcast) - the very first rock program on WXRT - which was then a foreign language station the rest of the broadcast day. SIDETRIP was hosted by Don Bridges and ran from 12M to 3AM - I know - I was the board op. Others followed like John Platt, Mitch Michaels Salchow, Seth Mason etc....but somehow Don's contribution to change the WXRT landscape from foreign language to underground rock - always gets left untold. Arnie Granat and Jerry Michelson of JAM PRODUCTIONS were also instrumental because initially they were the very first sponsors.

  • I think I heard Brian Auger’s Oblivion Express on this show. Unfortunately the “Mavericks” of back then have morphed into only a couple of hours on Monday night worth of listening on Xrt.
    Thanks for the post.
    Cheers

Gioco Closes Their Doors After 19 Year Run on South Wabash

...word yet on what the landlord plans for the soon-to-be vacant property at 1312 S. Wabash Avenue...

    Gioco Closes Their Doors After 19 Year Run on South Wabash
    A neighborhood staple quietly closed their doors this past weekend (via Eater Chicago): Gioco, the South Loop Italian restaurant that's been around for 19 years, is closing following dinner service on Sunday. The shutter seemed inevitable after the restaurant's owner and a real estate agent revealed problems in securing a new lease back in September.
