CORNERSTONES OF ROCK: AMERICAN GARAGE
Thursday, December 10 at 7:30 and 9:30 pm;
Saturday, December 12 at 9:00 pm on WTTW11
WTTW presents a world premiere! Join us for a nostalgic celebration of the Chicago “garage bands” who rose to national prominence in the 1960s and ’70s and remain popular today with their unforgettable, sing-along hits. The reunited groups who defined this era are The Ides of March, The Buckinghams, The Cryan Shames, The New Colony Six, The Shadows of Knight, The American Breed, The McCoys and the Standells. Each performed their greatest hits live before a packed audience in WTTW’s Grainger Studio.
Also included: two special tributes, one to the group Chase, and a performance by Skip Haynes honoring the late Mitch Aliotta with the iconic “Lake Shore Drive.”
Don’t miss this historic broadcast! The Program is hosted by Jim Peterik and Wendy Snyder.
