Chicago’s Cultural History


Thanks for creating such an awesome site. I work in TV post production and wish that I had spent a little more time pursuing radio. As a kid I used to ride my bike over to the old WCFL towers just to stare at them and admire the magic of radio. Or, I remember back in high school when the GM of WSEX (92.7fm Arlington Heights, IL) gave me a tour of what was one of the last all on-site suburban Chicago stations. Radio is definitely a major part of Chicago’s cultural history. Thanks for sharing some of your info.
