"The untitled series will expand on what Grohl set out to do in his Sound City documentary, as the frontman will visit and record at some of the world's most iconic recording studios.

"In addition to the recording, Grohl will conduct interviews with some of the artists who have recorded at each facility. Studios in consideration include Steve Albini's Electrical Audio in Chicago."

5. "A Crystal Lake man who in 2008 drunkenly crashed a snowmobile in Wisconsin, killing a Chicago TV news anchor, was sentenced to two years in prison today for a later DUI," the Tribune reports.

"Scott Hirschey, 50, was charged with drunken driving in Crystal Lake in July 2012, just around the time he was due to complete a three-year probation sentence for the snowmobile crash that killed his longtime friend and passenger, WBBM-Ch. 2 morning news anchor Randy Salerno."

6. "Here's a report [uploaded Saturday by The Museum of Classic Chicago Television] from Fred Villanueva of WLS Channel 7 on the funeral of slain mob boss Sam Giancana This was apparently from the 5 p.m. edition, as the report is introduced by John Drury.

"From this report, we learn that the funeral was held at 6901 West Belmont, and after the procession passed by his home, it went to the Queen of Heaven Cemetery where he was buried with his late wife who'd died in 1954.

"After the report ends, John is about to report on a hearing held by Senator Charles Percy about opium and the CIA before the recording cuts out.

"Technical Note: While this report originally aired in color, as presented here it was recorded on an early reel-to-reel home videotape recorder in black-and-white. Also, the recording cuts out for a brief period almost a minute in before resuming.

"This aired on local Chicago TV on Monday, June 23rd 1975."
