President Barack Obama will deliver his State of the Union address Tuesday night.

Jan. 24, 2012

As President Obama prepared for his State of the Union address Tuesday night, Eight Forty-Eight wondered what Americans should expect from the speech and how much compromise was necessary? Eight Forty-Eight heard from White House press secretary Jay Carney, Congressman Joe Walsh and Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky. Then, the 2012 Oscar nominations were out Tuesday--and one film that was not on the list was the Chicago-made documentary, The Interrupters. Eight Forty-Eight spoke to The Interrupters filmmaker Steve James. And, sports journalist Tab Bamford’s new book, 100 Things Blackhawks Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die, is for those fans looking to boost their Hawks I.Q. The author quizzes listeners on the most memorable moments, players and factoids. To play, call 312-923-9239, e-mail 848@wbez.org or find Eight Forty-Eight on Twitter @848.
