Empires on Live From Studio 10 - 9/2

Since their inception, Chicago’s Empires have been committed to DIY approach and hard work ethics to nurture their incredibly solid output of anthemic rock albums. It is this combination that has been the key to the band’s steady climb to success, landing them a performance at Lollapalooza, and more recently, an appearance on David Letterman. The band’s new album is called Orphan and will come out later this month. We’re excited to welcome the guys back in our studio to hear some of the new songs and talk about the new release. 

Tune in Tuesday, 9/2 at 8 pm CT on 91.1 FM or 90.7 FM (CHI) and 89.5 FM (NWI). Or stream at http://www.vocalo.org

Barber Shop Show 179: Take Me Out to The Ball Game

barbershopshow:

This week, the Jackie Robinson West Little League Team won the Little League National championships. They are the first all-black Little League team to become US Champions in over 30 years. In fact, the popularity of baseball in African-American communities have seen a pretty dramatic decline in the popularity of baseball.

On this installment of the Barber Shop Show, we revisit our 2012 look at that decline, as well as the presence of African American players in Major League Baseball. Co-Hosts Richard Steele and Kimbriell Kelly spoke with guests Evan Moore, Ben Strauss and former Negro League player M.C. Johnson.

Later in the show, we explore the lasting legacy of musician, composer, and bandleader Sun Ra, whose 100th birthday is being celebrated at this year’s Chicago Jazz Festival.

The Barber Shop Show airs on Fridays and Saturdays at Noon on 91.1FM, 90.7FM, and 89.5FM. You can also stream live at vocalo.org. The show also broadcasts on Sundays at 3pm on WBEZ.
