Chicago, the hugely popular FM baby boomer staple, will play a short set during the celebration of the 20th anniversary of Gov. Bill Clinton's announcement to run for president at the Old State House on Saturday, according to our sources. President Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be in attendance.

The standing-room-only event starts at 4 p.m. on Saturday. It's free, but you have get tickets. They're available throughout the week, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Clinton Center and will be available at the Old State House starting at noon on Saturday.

It'll be a good day to be in downtown Little Rock, with the Main Street Food Truck Festival kicking off at 11 a.m.

On the jump see footage of Chicago playing "Saturday in the Park" at a 1995 Presidential Gala, where President Clinton looks like he's in heaven.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
