SHARE Video: Sad Brad Smith performs for The Lunchbox

Remember that song in “Up In The Air” during the wedding scene? That was by Sad Brad Smith, a Chicago singer/songwriter who came by our studio for an Eight Forty-Eight appearance which airs tomorrow. We asked Brad to leave the relative safety of the studios and play a song for us in Navy Pier’s Crystal Gardens. We tried premiering it in today’s episode of The Lunchbox, but some people had trouble loading it. Here it is again for your enjoyment.
