KDHX says
Thomas Crone, author of "Gaslight Square: An Oral History," will give an address on the book, citing many of his recorded sources in the process. The book, published during the build-out of the residential phase of Gaslight in the early aughts, discusses the rise, fall and legacy of the Gaslight Square experience. Founded by the unlikely event of a tornado in 1959, the Square was essentially gone by the time of O'Connell's Pub's departure in 1972, though the legacy of this small, constricted entertainment district remains an enduring topic of St. Louis lore, a "what if?" case study for the ages.
