Steve Jobs and his leadership style were an integral part of the Apple brand—more so than most other heads of companies. Eight Forty-Eight compares Jobs’ monolithic vision to local leaders and how leadership styles relate to a company’s success. Running coach Brendan Cournane offers his ideas on how to enjoy the marathon weekend in the latest installment of The Weekly Guide. Hank Sartin of TimeOut Chicago then joins the show to discuss what's driving Hollywood's fondness for remakes of films like Star Trek, The Thing and Footloose. And Chuck Wren, of locally-based Jump Up Records, spins old and new-school ska all hour long as Eight Forty-Eight's Friday DJ.
