Will Chicago benefit from hosting the upcoming G-8/NATO summits? Eight Forty-Eight assesses the costs and benefits with Lori Healey, executive director of the Chicago G-8/NATO Host Committee, Allen Sanderson, University of Chicago economist, cultural critic Anne Elizabeth Moore and WBEZ’s Alex Keefe. Then, musician Christa Meyer matured musically with her longtime co-songwriter and husband, Tim Kelley. Now a few years after their divorce, Meyer is out again with a new project: Man Is Man. Meyer joined Eight Forty-Eight to perform and talk about her new sound and the transition she’s made as an artist and mother. And, WBEZ music blogger Jim DeRogatis stopped by the studio to talk about the war brewing over small-venue, live music audiences in the Chicago area.
