CORNERSTONES OF ROCK TV SPECIAL AND MORE NEWS!
Just received this from original Shadows of Knight vocalist Jimy Sohns...
A nostalgic celebration of the local "garage bands" that rose to national prominence in the 1960s and '70s and remain popular today with their sing-along hits. The local groups from the Chicago area who defined this era reunite onstage at WTTW's Grainger Studio: The Ides of March, The Buckinghams, The Cryan Shames, The New Colony Six, The Shadows of Knight, The McCoys, and The American Breed. Each group plays its greatest hits and then gathers together to offer up two special tributes: to “Get It On” by Chase, and to the late Mitch Aliotta as they perform a rousing rendition of his iconic "Lake Shore Drive."
Watch it on WTTW at these current airing times:
Thursday, December 10: 7:30pm
Thursday, December 10: 9:42pm
Saturday, December 12: 9:00pm
