Empires on Live From Studio 10 (09/14)
159 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.

Barber Shop Show 181: Building Blocks for Children's Success
347 plays

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

Every neighborhood in Chicago is as distinct as the voices it produces. Yet, if we look close enough, we’d be surprised to find the similarities between them. In our on-going #Block2Block series, we explore various neighborhoods and the flourishing cultures within them through the voices of musicians living and creating music in those neighborhoods. In this episode, we hear from Macie and Liam of Chicago indie rock band Marrow, who discuss growing up in Mayfair and Old Irving Park, respectively.
