Auburn Gresham artist Eddie Harris's art celebrates or critiques aspects of life that affect him and his community.

Dec. 16, 2011

WBEZ political reporter Sam Hudzik joined Eight Forty-Eight to talk about the latest negations and discussions surrounding redrawing the city’s ward map. Then, for Auburn Gresham, Chicago's final installment, producer Bill Healy stopped by the home of an Auburn Gresham artist who uses the quiet and trees of his yard to make statements about his neighborhood. Plus, Christy LeMaster joined Eight Forty-Eight to review Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Young Adult. And, for several decades Cynthia Plaster Caster has taken her fandom to a very intimate place. She has immortalized the private parts of musicians and their entourages and is now working on a memoir of her conquests. She dishes about her groupie lifestyle and shares her picks for a fun weekend in the latest installment of The Weekly Guide. And, Dustin Drase spun holiday tunes as Eight Forty-Eight's Friday DJ.
