Hello, I was wondering what is the best way to submit music to be considered for musicvox. I have searched high and low and I can't seem to find a submission form or anything, and it's possible it's right in front of my face and I just can't see it. If you could let me know as soon as you get a chance that would be great! Thanks -Elle
According to Angela Caputo’s recent cover story for the Chicago Reporter, “More than half of the $500 million dollars spent on Chicago Park District improvements since 2011 went to just 10 of the city’s 77 neighborhoods. And seven of those 10 neighborhoods are increasingly white, affluent and have access to outside money.”
Angela Caputo, investigative journalist at the Chicago Reporter, joined Richard at the shop this week. They were also joined by: • Helen Juarez of the Kelly Park Advisory Council. and • Cassandra Francis of the organization Friends of the Parks.
Later in the program, Angela and Richard were joined WBEZ’s West Side Bureau reporter Chip Mitchell. Recently, Chip has been following the questions of Police Misconduct surrounding Chicago Police Commander Glenn Evans. Angela has been covering this story for The Chicago Reporter as well. She’s also reported on the larger story of police misconduct in the Chicago Police Department and the Independent Police Review Authority.
