After talking about St. Louis and its people every weekday for the past 25 years, Charlie Brennan has gathered the greatest and most incredible St. Louis stories in celebration of the city's 250th birthday. Brennan divulges how St. Louisans gave the world rock and roll, the cocktail party, the city of Chicago, the musical Cats and more! Brennan also shares some of the world's strangest oddities and curiosities that just happened to take place in the Gateway to the West.
Packed with hundreds of almost unknown facts about the people and events of St. Louis, this book is ideal for lovers of this great American city and its rich history.
