Outside the Loop RADIO

Aug 28, 2016

Mike Stephen talks with freelance reporter Lee V. Gaines about Cook County attempting to define "fine art" while going after small venues for supposed back amusement taxes, chats with Great Lakes Surf Rescue Project executive director Dave Benjamin about how his organization is working to prevent drownings in Lake Michigan through education, and stops by a landmark building in Chicago to chat with Studio Gang model shop co-workers Schuyler Smith and Lydia Meyer about the wheat they're growing in their rooftop garden and where it ends up in the community. Meanwhile, via a listener tip, we run through some of the Chicago Transit Authority sounds featured on the Chicago "L".org website. This week's local music is provided by The FeverTones.
