Today's Tune: "Fire And Water" By Free

Free's 'Fire And Water' album was originally released in June of 1970.

On October 8, 1871, four major fires broke out on the shores of Lake Michigan in Chicago, Illinois, Peshtigo, Wisconsin, Holland, Michigan, and Manistee, Michigan. The Great Chicago Fire, which left almost 100,000 people homeless, is the most famous of the four. However, the Peshtigo Fire may have killed as many as 2,500 people, making it the deadliest fire in United States history.

Thinking about all this fire and water existing at the same time and within the same general area, brings to mind one of the most well known songs by the great English band Free. "Fire And Water" is the 'Today's Tune' this time.
