I Loved WVON...

I Remember Richard Pegue

"The Point" is a man-made peninsula jutting into Lake Michigan, part of Chicago's Burnham Park. The Point was constructed from landfill and by the late 1930s was protected by a seawall or revetment. The revetment was designed and constructed by Chicago Park District engineers and consists of limestone blocks arranged in a series of four steps leading to a promenade.

Way in the distance as you approached you could hear the sounds of the bongos. I remember the excitement that I always felt hearing those drums. The 60's and early 70's...memories.

Located on Chicago Park District land at 55th Street in Chicago's south side Hyde Park neighborhood, it was opened to the public in 1937. Alfred Caldwell, a disciple of Jens Jensen, designed the landscaping, following the Prairie School which uses native plants and stone. Caldwell's design featured a raised "meadow" section in the center of the 12 acre peninsula and included hundreds of flowering trees and shrubs. In 1938, Caldwell created stone sitting council rings around the lakefront edge, which today are used as fire pits. Few of Caldwell's original plantings remain today.

The park is accessed by the Lake Shore Bike Path, and a tunnel which passes under Lake Shore Drive at the east end of 55th Street. At the head of the park, seen immediately upon emerging from the 55th Street tunnel, is the David Wallach Memorial Fountain. This fountain was designed in 1939 by Elizabeth and Frederick Hibbard in the shape of a fawn, with drinking areas at human and animal levels. During the Cold War the park also housed a 150-foot (46 m) radar tower for the Nike Hercules missile defense system; it was dismantled in 1971.

The park contains a fieldhouse, built in 1937, the exterior of which is made of Lannon Stone from Wisconsin. Partly because of its view of the lake and cityline, it is a popular wedding and corporate event location. It competes with the much larger Jackson Park 63rd Street Beach House and the even larger South Shore Cultural Center as south side beachfront special use facilities. The frequent summer fireworks displays at Navy Pier are often viewed from The Point, especially on Independence Day, when large numbers of Hyde Parkers and other south side residents gather there. It neighbors the Museum of Science and Industry and the 57th Street Beach.

Water access is an important aspect of the Point's history of use. Swimmers, sunbathers, kayakers, and windsurfers use the Point's revetment to access the waters of Lake Michigan. In the summer months, the North side of the Point functions as a "rock beach." On the South side of the Point, distance swimmers swim South across the bay in front of the 57th Street beach. This has been the source of conflict with the Chicago Park District as swimming off the Point is not officially allowed. From time to time, swimmers have been ticketed for violating this rule. In 2003, the Chicago Park District offered to create an officially sanctioned deep water swimming area off the South side of the Point.

Did a gig last night with James Cotton's old keyboard player - Eddie Harsch. He also played with Albert Collins and The Black Crowes. Dame.....He's amazing. Its like magic when you have the right chemistry! He's going to hook up with the band I've been working with "SoulStack". Should be very cool!

Good to be home again! Got lot's of great pictures and music to add, of all the big Blues festivals up here in the north. Hope everyone is well! My Poppa had a fall and broke his hip! He's 90 this year! God bless him. Like a bull...he's bouncing back. Momma's starting to drift, but she still knows who he is. All in all, I have a lot to be thankful for...Spread the love!

The music is divine, and so are the photos. Bringing back many memories that weren't lost, but only put on a shelf. Wonderful to 'dust' them off and remember again.

Charlottesville shrouds divisive Confederate statues in black cloth

Charlottesville shrouds divisive Confederate statues in black cloth To applause from spectators, workers in Charlottesville, Virginia, covered two statues of Confederate generals with black tarpaulins on Wednesday in honor of the woman who was killed during a rally by white nationalists in the liberal-leaning college town. The council wants to remove the statues of Confederate Army generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, but cannot do because of a pending lawsuit challenging the city's plan. The Aug. 12 rally was organized by white nationalists who objected to the plans to remove the statues from a local park.
