Saturday Morning Flashback: 1984 [Playlist]

It was a big year for Bruce. Born in the U.S.A. was the top album on the ’84 XRT Listener Poll, and his three shows with the E Street Band at the Rosemont Horizon in July were voted the best concerts of the year.

1984 was also the year that the Bulls drafted Michael Jordan, Oprah Winfrey came to the Windy City to join a local TV morning show, and the first Chicago Blues Festival was held in Grant Park.

Coming up:
