Fridays bring donuts to the station (thanks, donut fairy!). And today, the donuts are sprinkled with hot gossip from last night’s Lost season finale. We’ve got a rainy day ahead of us in Chicago - but we’re making up for it with some sunny radio Friday night. Here’s the lineup: This American Life - The Prosecutor. A lawyer gets the opportunity of a lifetime: to prosecute one of the first high-profile terrorist cases after 9/11. Friday 7p, Sat 12n Sound Opinions - Death Cab for Cutie. Greg and Jim hosted Death Cab earlier this month for a live interview and performance. Tune in to Sound Opinions this weekend to hear the band talk about their new album and play some tunes in front of a live Chicago audience. Friday 8p, Saturday 11a Radio M - Host Tony Sarabia shines the spotlight on the late Cal Tjader, one of the world’s leading players of Cuban mambo. There’s also music from Brazilian samba queen Clara Nunes, Garifuna artist Andy Palacio, and the father of afrobeat-Fela Kuti. Friday 9p
