WLS Radio celebrated its 89th birthday Friday night with a party at Navy Pier that was hosted by Roe Conn and featured broadcasting legend Dick Biondi.

Governor Pat Quinn was on hand to declare it WLS Chicago Day.

Soon after going on the air, it became the country's top farm station, later a rock-and-roll trailblazer and now a big talk radio station.
