Vocalo on WBEZ Ep. 53 - Preppers with Guns, Hemmingbirds, DJ Derrek Moon

In this episode: WBEZ ‘s Aurora Aguilar joined Vocalo’s Molly Adams and Brian Babylon to share her report on Preppers: a segment on the gun owner population that believe doomsday is coming and that guns are the most important tool in preparing for the end of civilization.

Also, From a solo project conceived by singer / guitarist / violist Yoo Soo Kim, Hemmingbirds have evolved into a full-fledged indie pop band that combines soulful melodies, dynamic arrangements and thoughtful lyricism into one distinct sound, all of which is captured on their standout release, The Vines of Age. Hemmingbirds’ performance was recorded in Chicago Public Media’s Jim and Kay Mabie performance studio.

And as always we close out the show with a great DJ set. This time, we feature the sounds of Derrek Moon.

Preppers: Preparing for the end of civilization with guns


George describes himself as “half-hillbilly, half-Viking.”

WBEZ’s Aurora Aguilar talked with George Drouillard (a pseudonym) about his preparedness plan.  It maybe a devastating blizzard or a government takeover, either way George is ready with canned food, extra batteries, shovels, and lots and lots of guns. Aguilar joins hosts Molly Adams and Brian Babylon in the studio while Christopher Hill, editor of Survival and Prosperity, calls in to discuss the lifestyle choice that George has made and the community that supports it.
