Last week we went to Experimental Station on Chicago's South Side for a lively conversation. As part of our Inside and Out series, we gathered young people, community leaders, teachers, and activists to answer this: Why is there racial disparity in our juvenile justice system?
This morning on 848 Alison talked to Jennifer Greenburg, the photographer behind the new book The Rockabillies. Jennifer traveled the country to capture the subculture-rockabillies at work, at‚ play and at‚ home.‚ We met up with Jennifer at Night and Day Vintage on Chicago's North Side.
Alison recently caught up with Susannan Gora, who penned the novel You Couldn't Forget Me If You Tried: The Brat Pack, John Hughes and Their Impact on a Generation. Gora loves Hughes and the Brat Pack, but really, who doesn't?
If you listen to Eight Forty-Eight regularly, it's probably pretty clear that not every conversation we air is happening in real time. On any given day, generally about half or more of the show is taped. And sometimes those conversations are so fun that we can't wait to get them on.
