Vocalo's Barber Shop Show

The Impact of Lead

This week on the Barber Shop Show, we spoke with reporting fellows from City Bureau, a grass roots journalism training program. One of their current projects is an investigation into lead exposure in Chicago. To talk about some of the findings of that project, we were joined City Bureau reporting fellows: • Nissa Rhee • Sarah Conway • Timna Axel Then, later in the show, we revisisted a conversation Richard has with Herb Kent back in 2008. The radio legend recently passed away at the age of 88 after a career that spanned seven decades. The Barber Shop Show airs Sundays at 9am on Vocalo 91.1FM. You can also stream live at In addition, the show rebroadcasts on Sundays at 3pm on WBEZ 91.5FM.
