Rick Kogan on Chicago Live!

As Rick Kogan says: “Before Twitter, iPods and even television, there was radio.”

In this edition of the Almanac, a historical news segment on Chicago Live!, Kogan talks about Chicago’s role in the early days of radio, including WGN’s broadcast of the Scopes Trial, the “Amos ‘n’ Andy” show and how WVON shook up the radio dial.
