) and fewer riders on the older 'L' lines. This imbalance of service allowed the CTA to develop a more efficient system by combining the more heavily used rail lines together, and the weaker lines with each other, providing increased service capacity for the routes that need it. Thus, on February 21, 1993 the Howard branch was combined with the Dan Ryan branch creating the current '''Red Line''', and the Lake Street branch was paired with the Englewood-Jackson Park routes to form the '''Green Line

changed to '''WLUP''' in March 1977. The station called itself "The Loop" which is what the main business district (Chicago Loop) in Chicago is nicknamed. WLUP programmed a low-key female-friendly AOR (album oriented rock) format (similar to the early days of today's 97.1 The Drive (WDRV)). Jay Blackburn was Program Director and Tom O'Toole served as the stations first morning host and was the first Loop DJ to sign on the air. The original Loop air staff included O'Toole

He often includes Chicago landmarks and folkloric figures from his childhood in 1950s Chicago, regardless of when the book is set. An example of this is the recurring character the Chicken Man, a mysterious but dignified black man who carries a performing chicken on his head. This character is based on a shadowy figure from 1950s Chicago; after Pinkwater made him a lead character in ''Lizard Music'' he received

History The Apollo Theater Chicago is not the first Chicago theater to bear the name Apollo. In 1921, A. H. Woods (who also owned the Woods Theatre) opened the Apollo Theater in the Chicago Loop District, at the corner of Randolph and Dearborn Streets. Originally operated as a playhouse, the Apollo was sold in 1927 to United Artists Corporation, and (as the United Artists Theater) became a debut venue for United Artists releases. The theater was closed in November 1987, and demolished in 1989. Designed by the architectural firm of Holabird and Roche, the theater was notable for its incorporation of elements of the Greek Revival style. Notable productions at The Apollo include David Mamet's ''Sexual Perversity in Chicago'' starring James Belushi, Balm in Gilead with John Malkovich and Gary Sinise, the long running play The Vagina Monologues, and A Nutcracker Christmas written by children's recording artist Ralph Covert of Ralph's World and G. Riley Mills. By 1865, Whitcomb had been promoted to General Purchasing Agent for the Panhandle Railroad and the family included George Bennett Whitcomb and Carroll Sylvanus Whitcomb. He was now moving on to ownership of his own company and relocated to Chicago. His new company was engaged in production of coal mining machinery and coal field development to supply the railroads. In 1871, the disastrous Great Chicago Fire destroyed most of the central city. The offices of the Whitcomb Mining and Manufacturing Company were relocated to the corner of LaSalle and Adams Street in the Loop (Chicago Loop) area of downtown Chicago. The Schlosser Block, where the company offices were located, was a four story impressive granite faced building, just doors from the famed “Rookery” building by the architects Burnham and Root. These were heady days in Chicago. A rebirth swept the city after the fire and it was a time for men with ideas and dreams to seize potential.

It is one of the city's 77 designated community areas (Community areas of Chicago). The Loop is home to Chicago's commercial core, City Hall (Chicago City Hall), and the seat of Cook County (Cook County, Illinois). The community area is bounded on the west and north by the Chicago River, on the east by Lake Michigan, and on the south by Roosevelt Road, although the commercial core has expanded into adjacent community areas. As a business center, the Loop hosts the Chicago Board of Trade at the foot of LaSalle Street, and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. The Loop is home to Grant Park (Grant Park (Chicago)), the State Street (State Street, Chicago) shopping district, and the Art Institute of Chicago. Other major cultural institutions that call this area home include the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Lyric Opera of Chicago, the Goodman Theatre, the Joffrey Ballet, the central public Harold Washington Library, and the Chicago Cultural Center.
In what is now the Loop Community Area, on the south bank of the Chicago River, near today's Michigan Avenue Bridge, the U.S. Army erected Fort Dearborn in 1803. It was the first settlement in the area sponsored by the United States. In 1908, Chicago addresses were made uniform by naming the intersection of State Street and Madison Street (Madison Street (Chicago)) in the Loop as the division point for designating addresses, North, South, East or West on the Chicago street grid (Roads and expressways in Chicago).
