From its early days as the farmer’s companion to over a quarter century as the nation’s premier rock-and-roll station, WLS has touched the lives of millions of listeners
Many well-known celebrities, like Gene Autry, owe their careers to the Big 89, through the famous Saturday night program The National Barn Dance. Local personalities such as Dick Biondi, Larry Lujack, and John Records Landecker became household names thanks to Chicago’s 50,000-watt blowtorch. The images in Chicago’s WLS Radio scan the entire history of the station, featuring engaging hosts, the biggest stars, and lots of fun. The book also covers WLS’s move in the 1990s to become a leader in the news and talk format.
