Every day until New Year’s Day I’m selecting tunes or carols you won’t hear on FM Radio but they are certainly deserving of airplay. Because the Christmas season continues.
August of 1998. I was moonlighting with some friends, working backstage security at the Main Stage at the Wisconsin State Fair.
The night Chicago performed was ungodly hot. In the 90’s.
At one point images of large snowflakes flashed on a screen behind the band as a promotion for their upcoming album. Famous for using numbers to title their LPs (Chicago V was their 5th album, Chicago VI was their 6th, etc., etc.) Chicago XXV would be the group’s first Christmas album.
What did Chicago play that hot August night to cheers from the crowd?
