  • Fire in Boomtown with Amy Lowe and Megan Wells

    Join Amy and Megan for a sterling and brilliant mix of music, commentary, theater and history as they recount the story of The Great Chicago Fire of 1871. First, they dispatch the legend, captured in the catchy song, “One Dark Night,” that vilified Mrs. O'Leary and her lantern-kicking cow for the raging inferno that destroyed an entire city. They paint a vivid picture of a city that grew far too fast, with far too little planning and they sing chillingly of the “Mud, Wood, Drought, Blunder & Wind,” conditions that led to the devastation.
