The new season of Radio Lab debuts on Chicago Public Radio THIS Sunday at 6p. Its like Christmas for me when Radio Lab releases a new season. I count down the days, use it as an excuse to eat a ton of carbs, wear my big comfy holiday sweater and curl up on the couch with a cup of coco to listen.
American RadioWorks up in Minneapolis does a bang up job every year producing radio documentaries. This season is no exception. I'm really excited to bring these to you in our Sunday Specials slot at 9 p.m. I am especially excited for After the Projects, airing on Sunday, October 26.

As you may have heard on the radio this morning, Chatham Food Center founder Leonard Harris recently sold his store. That marks the end of an era for the region since Chatham Food Center was the last full service grocery store in Chicago that was black-owned.
