At 12:15am ET New Year's morning, Toast of the Nation will be live from The Green Mill, the famed speakeasy of old Chicago. And it won't be our first time there. On 12/31/1993, we broadcast Reginald Robinson and John Weber playing two pianos behind and above the bar. Very dramatic.
From New Year's Eve 1993, here is Robinson's "The Strongman," back-announced by Weber. Hear that happy Green Mill crowd then and again this Friday night/Saturday morning, ringing in 2011 Central Time.
