First up on Eight Forty-Eight Monday morning, WBEZ reporters Sam Hudzik and Mike Puente preview the Indiana primaries. They chat with us about the fortunes of U.S. Senator Richard Lugar, who finds himself trailing challanger Richard Mourdock, a Tea Party favorite. 

Then, Chicago magazine's Deal Estate columnist Dennis Rodkin talks about mixed-income housing. Only 11% of eligible relocated public housing residents live in these new developments. We explore what the Chicago Housing Authority is going to do about it. To join the conversation, call 312.923.9239.

Psychedelic rock band Volcanoes Make Islands plays throughout the hour.
