Chicago’s City Council is scheduled to vote on the proposed 2012 city budget next week. Eight Forty-Eight spoke with City Hall reporter Dan Mihalopoulos about what issues are garnering the most reaction from aldermen. Then, WBEZ’s Richard Steele talks with veteran Bryan Anderson about his memoir No Turning Back: One Man’s Inspiring True Story of Courage, Determination, and Hope. Plus, the Changing Gears project is looking at the challenges of the region’s empty places this month. Kate Davidson reports that in Detroit, some residents are using that emptiness to quietly reshape their neighborhoods. And, Fall Out Boy singer Patrick Stump is out with his solo album, Soul Punk. He joined Eight Forty-Eight to talk about his new release, the finer points of Michael Jackson versus Prince and his new album's dramatic departure from his work with Fall Out Boy.
