Crow Moses on Live From Studio 10 (Sept. 2014)
31 plays

On his new album, Horse Heaven Hills, Crow Moses delivers a collection of songs that build upon Americana and folk traditions. Though this is his debut under the Crow Moses name, this is not his first foray into music, having previously released albums under the Musikanto moniker. But this is definitely a release that sees the Chicago folk singer expand his ability to weave compelling narratives, imagery and melodies.

Live From Studio 10 airs Tuesdays at 8pm CST on Vocalo 91.1 FM & 90.7 FM (CHI) / 89.5 FM (NWI) and Vocalo.org. The show features emerging bands and music artists from Chicago and beyond.

Barber Shop Show 183: Local Actors and Filmmakers of Color
139 plays

barbershopshow:

The film and television industry here in Chicago has seen a remarkable uptick in activity. Just like in Hollywood, in some areas, it can be a challenge to avoid closures caused by filming.
On this week’s Barber Shop Show, we ask local filmmakers and actors if Hollywood’s famous lack of diversity plays out on the Chicago film scene, too.

On this installment, host Richard Steele was at the shop with:
• Local actor Cedric Young
• Wandachristine, local actress and voiceover talent
• Margaret Caples, executive director of the Community Film Workshop
• Tony G. Williams, up-and-coming filmmaker
Plus, we hear some tape from a minority filmmakers’ roundtable discussion Richard was invited to earlier this year. The Q & A session was part of a larger event held at Chicago’s Cinespace Studio by E.N.D. Productions.

The Barber Shop Show airs on Fridays and Saturdays at Noon on 90.7FM, 89.5FM, and 91.1FM. You can also stream live at vocalo.org. In addition, the show broadcasts on Sundays at 3pm on WBEZ 91.5FM.

Empires on Live From Studio 10 (09/14)
230 plays

Since they started, Chicago’s Empires have been committed to a DIY approach to music. That, and their hard work ethic has nurtured their impressive output of anthemic rock albums. It’s these factors that have been the key to the band’s steady climb to success. In a short time they’ve played at Lollapalooza, and made an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman. The band’s new album is called Orphan (out 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.

Live From Studio 10 airs Tuesdays at 8pm CST on Vocalo 91.1 FM & 90.7 FM (CHI) / 89.5 FM (NWI) and Vocalo.org. The show features emerging bands and music artists from Chicago and beyond.

barbershopshow:

On this installment of the Barber Shop Show, we talk about Steve Bogira’s recent report for The Chicago Reader about the impact of PTSD on Children. According to the article, “Post Traumatic Stress Disorder was first studied in combat veterans, but in recent years it’s become clear that children are especially [at risk].” Steve joined host Richard Steele at the shop and helped us to look at the cost of untreated PTSD… not in The Middle East; but in our own backyard. Plus, we learn about a program training college students to serve preschool children in under-resourced communities.

We were also joined by:
Aminah Wyatt-Jones
Innovation Zone Project Development Manager
Illinois Action for Children

Melissa Frazin & Lupe Raya of
Jumpstart Chicago at DePaul University

Bryan Stokes II
Director of Programs at
Gads Hill Center

Later, we heard about the need for more trauma centers on the South Side, and the ripple effect on the whole South Suburban region.
For that conversation, we spoke with:
J. Brian Malone, Executive Director of the Kenwood Oakwood Community Organization (KOCO)
Alexis Moore, youth organizer from Fearless Leading by the Youth, (FLY)
and Park Forest, IL Mayor John Ostenburg
