Bob Sirott

Remembering Edgewater Beach Hotel by John Holden

John Holden, author of ‘Remembering Edgewater Beach Hotel’, joined Bob Sirott to discuss some of the points that he covers in his book: Remembering Edgewater Beach Hotel. The hotel’s rich history included a numbers of ‘firsts’, such as the first indoor parking garage, and it was the original home of WGN Radio. The building was demolished in 1971.
