On this installment of the Barber Shop Show, host Richard Steele sits down with Kahil El'Zabar. Kahil is a Chicago-based percussionist who has played around the world for decades. He’s also the subject of a recent documentary, titled “Be Known”.
But first, we get caught up with news stories on the radar of Mary Mitchell of the Chicago Sun-Times, including the ongoing saga of so-called "rogue" Harold's Chicken Shacks encroaching on the local institution's livelihood.
The Barber Shop Show airs on Fridays and Saturdays at Noon on 90.7FM and 89.5FM. You can also stream live at vocalo.org. The show also broadcasts on Sundays at 3pm on WBEZ.
