Secret Colours on Live From Studio 10 - 4/8

Chicago’s Secret Colours have been generating a national buzz around the release of their 2-part album Positive Distractions and their sound steeped in 60’s psychedelia and 90’s Britpop. With new album and mostly new members, comes a new fresh approach to songwriting but there’s still plenty of reverb on jangly guitar riffs and spacey organ sounding keys to make it one of Secret Colours’ best.

We’re pleased to welcome the band for a live set and conversation about the new album and their new collective.

Tune in Tues. 4/8 at 8 PM CT on 90.7 FM (CHI) / 89.5 FM (NWI) or stream at www.vocalo.org/player

Strike for America: How Teacher Unions Influenced the U.S. Public School System

morningamp:

The Chicago Teachers’ Union strike in fall of 2012 made national news as it pitted the public school teachers against the mayor and a CPS Board that wanted to change classroom sizes, raise structures, and the health care plan among other things. A new book from Jacobin Press recounts the drama and looks at how the strike has influenced other actions in the US public education. Author Micah Uetricht joined the AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams to discuss.
