In the June 1988 issue of Inside XRT, the station announces the first ever Free Fourth of July Concert, a tradition that XRT has continued consistently and has become a landmark event 25 years later. Performers at Grant Park’s Petrillo Band Shell included Austin, Texas based duo Timbuk 3, British rocker Graham Parker, and headlining the show was The Robert Cray Band.
The first in a series of four monthly XRT 4D Flashback Weekends is devoted to The 1980′s. You’ll ear exclusive audio essays contributed by the entire XRT airstaff regarding some of the most memorable events of that era, cultural, political, and of course, musical, as well as personal perspectives on the impact the 80′s had on our lives.
