What major Chicago radio station began their broadcasting on Howard Street, in the Grand Ballroom of the Broadmoor Hotel ?
(We'll give you a hint: their early slogan was
"We Broadcast Broadmoor Music!")

This was a fun event, and the weather couldn't be nicer.

Visited all 20 locations on the tour and had a great time of it.
