We also get song picks from Lee Green, a woman who not only brought a certain kind of pepper back from the brink of extinction, but also has a secret past in the world of opera. Each person gives us three songs and explain how they are connected to his or her life.</p><p><strong>Restaurateur and TV host Rick Bayless</strong></p><p><iframe frameborder="no" height="166" scrolling="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/235457290&amp;color=ff5500&amp;auto_play=false&amp;hide_related=false&amp;show_comments=true&amp;show_user=true&amp;show_artwork=false" width="100%"></iframe></p><p><strong>Heirloom-pepper advocate Lee Greene</strong></p><p><iframe frameborder="no" height="166" scrolling="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/235455985&amp;color=ff5500&amp;auto_play=false&amp;hide_related=false&amp;show_comments=true&amp;show_user=true&amp;show_artwork=false" width="100%"></iframe></p><p><strong>&ldquo;Wait Wait&hellip;Don&rsquo;t Tell Me!&rdquo; host Peter Sagal</strong></p><p><iframe frameborder="no" height="166" scrolling="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/235460829&amp;color=ff5500&amp;auto_play=false&amp;hide_related=false&amp;show_comments=true&amp;show_user=true&amp;show_artwork=false" width="100%"></iframe></p><p><strong>Jazz promoter and advocate Alyce Claerbaut</strong></p><p><iframe frameborder="no" height="166" scrolling="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/235459993&amp;color=ff5500&amp;auto_play=false&amp;hide_related=false&amp;show_comments=true&amp;show_user=true&amp;show_artwork=false" width="100%"></iframe></p><p><strong>Chicago Sun-Times columnist Neil Steinberg</strong></p><p><iframe frameborder="no" height="166" scrolling="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/235459037&amp;color=ff5500&amp;auto_play=false&amp;hide_related=false&amp;show_comments=true&amp;show_user=true&amp;show_artwork=false" width="100%"></iframe></p><p><strong>Master gardener and author Jeanne Nolan</strong></p><p><iframe frameborder="no" height="166" scrolling="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/235458330&amp;color=ff5500&amp;auto_play=false&amp;hide_related=false&amp;show_comments=true&amp;show_user=true&amp;show_artwork=false" width="100%"></iframe></p></p> Fri, 27 Nov 2015 10:00:00 -0600 http://www.wbez.org/programs/morning-shift/2015-11-30/morning-shift-november-27-2015-my-life-three-songs-special-113996 Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me's free show in Millennium Park http://www.wbez.org/programs/morning-shift/2015-07-30/wait-waitdont-tell-mes-free-show-millennium-park-112516 <img typeof="foaf:Image" src="http://llnw.wbez.org//main-images/waitwait.jpg" alt="" /><p><p>One of the hottest tickets in town for public radio listeners is the weekly live taping of Wait Wait&hellip;Don&rsquo;t Tell Me.
