It was an era that redefined Chicago history. . . an era that would transform a generation and change the face of the nation, and a time that would blossom into an age of self-discovery and see the awakening of a city and an entire country. Relive Chicago through the eyes of twenty Chicagoans as they recount the stories and events of their youth, comings of age, and the hallmarks that define them as individuals, as Chicagoans and as Baby Boomers. This new program covers many of the events and places that shaped the lives of every Chicagoan, including Bozo's Circus, the radio battles of WLS versus WCFL, the scares of polio and the atomic bomb, John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, the 1967 blizzard, the moon walk, and so much more.
