Chicagoans of a certain age remember "Wild Chicago," a great TV show on Channel 11 that featured the weird, wacky and wonderful people, places and things about the city. Its original host, Ben Hollis, has gotten permission from WTTW to produce a best-of DVD from the first two seasons of the show, and he's started an IndieGoGo campaign to help make it happen.
