On Friday a Chicago City Council committee will vote on whether to put a referendum on the November ballot allowing officials to purchase electricity in bulk to bring down costs. Thursday on Eight Forty-Eight, WBEZ’s Lauren Chooljian gives the lowdown. 

And to kick off the official start of summer, host Tony Sarabia plays some of his favorite sun-kissed songs for this edition of Music Thursday, with Chic-a-Go-Go host Mia Park.

Plus, Diane Falanga talks about her new book P.S. I Still Hate it Here, a hilarious collection of kids’ letters sent from summer camp.
