January 29, 2020

On this episode of the Illinois Valley Alternative Podcast, John and Clayton discuss a variety of local topics: OSLAD, the Starved Rock Lock and Dam, Streator 4th of July, the American Pickers at Herrcke, and some old timey stories courtesy of the Ottawa Times. Also, thanks to the NewsTribune for many of this episodes' topics. We finish up with our things of the week with plenty of randomness to fill in the cracks.
