Barber Shop Show 141: West Side Chicago Legends

George's Music Room and Uncle Remus' Chicken have brought legendary music and flavor to their community for decades. However, both small businesses have not been immune from struggle. Charmaine Alfred and Gus Rickette of Uncle Remus’ Chicken, and George Daniels of George's Music Room, talked about the challenges they face. Plus, Hyde Park Herald reporter Lindsay Welbers and Hermene Hartman, publisher of N'DIGO, helped us unpack the debate about the proposed official name change for Chicago's Stony Island Avenue (not one of those honorary brown signs... the real deal). The "Barber Shop Show" airs on Fridays and Saturdays at Noon on 90.7FM and 89.5FM. You can also stream live at (Photo courtesy of George's Music Room.)
