CONCERT WEBCAST: Warpaint Perform LIVE From XRT WATCH THE PERFORMANCE

Saturday Morning Flashback: 1986 [Playlist]

Chicago was united by a cast of characters known as Da Bears, and the icing on the cake was their total domination Superbowl victory over the New England Patriots. It was also the year that Oprah expanded her kingdom beyond our fair city via syndication, on her way to becoming a media mogul.
Another local highlight was a surprise appearance by Keith Richards, who joined Chuck Berry onstage at the third annual Chicago Blues Festival. XRT’s Tom Marker cherishes his souvenir of the evening: an empty Jack Daniels bottle.

Coming up:
July 16 – 1975
July 23 – 1983
July 30 – 1991
