An Abbreviated History Of The Local Anesthetic Holiday Spectacular (1991-2016) [Playlist & Free Download]
A very short history of the Anesthetic Spectacular along with an overview of what to expect on this Sunday night’s “Best of 25” broadcast.
Our last show of new Chicago music for 2016 featured the latest from Minor Moon, Nest, Teds Dancin, The Band Royale, Sonny Falls, Railway Gamblers and a preview of this coming Sunday night’s Local Anesthetic Holiday Spectacular “Best of 25 Years” special.
As I’ve done for the last couple of Holiday Spectaculars that have landed on Anesthetic anniversary years ending in either “0” or “5”, this year, being the 25th anniversary of Local Anesthetic, I will whittle down all previous entries in to one sixty-minute “Best Of”.
