barbershopshow:

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.

Walking Bicycles on Live From Studio 10 (aired August 2014)
228 plays

There’s a lot of dissonance and unnerving tension on Walking Bicycles’ new album To Him That Wills The Way. Not surprising, considering the album (first in 5 years) recounts the band’s experiences with separation, longing, captivity and freedom as a result of the incarceration of one of its members. The story is told through singer Jocelyn’s somber droning vocals and the dark menacing atmosphere created by heavy guitar riffs.

Live From Studio 10 airs Tuesdays at 8pm CST on Vocalo 90.7 FM (CHI) / 89.5 FM (NWI) and Vocalo.org, and features emerging bands and music artists from Chicago and beyond. One hour of music and interview, all live. The show is hosted by Jesse Menendez, produced by Fyodor Sakhnovski and engineered by Adam Yoffe. Subscribe to the podcast here: bitly.com/vocaloLFS10
