A bulldozer helps to dig out cars on Lake Shore Drive after the 2011 blizzard.

With the unusually balmy weather of late, last year's blizzard might seem like a distant memory. But Eight Forty-Eight heard from one man who will never forget the hours he spent trapped on a bus on Lake Shore Drive. Then, Eight Forty-Eight's Tony Sarabia spoke with actor and filmmaker Matt Damon and rapper Lupe Fiasco about The People Speak Live!, a performance based on Howard Zinn's book, A People’s History of the United States. And, WBEZ's Richard Steele remembered Soul Train host Don Cornelius before kicking off a month-long series unearthing his favorite deep cuts from African American musicians.
