Hello Beautiful!

From Chicago's Classrooms to Chicago's Streets

Robbie Telfer reads his story titled I'm A Homosexual. It's a part of Teacher Tales: Stories from the Front Lines, a performance at Steppenwolf that brings together educators to share their sometimes moving and other times comic dispatches from the classroom. A recording of the entire event will be available at Chicago Amplified.

Then, host Richard Steele and performer Kevin McIlvaine listen as we hear from sound man Gordon Quinn, who joined filmmaker Mike Shea in 1964 to capture the sights and sounds of the Maxwell Street Sunday market for their film, And This Is Free. Gordon Quinn tells Hello Beautiful! what it was like to put this colorful time capsule of Chicago blues together.
