Vocalo's Barber Shop Show

Tribute to Muhammad Ali

On June 3rd, the world mourned the death of Muhammad Ali. The three-time heavyweight champion of the world succumbed after a long battle with Parkinson's Disease. We heard about his legacy, both in and out of the boxing ring (especially here in Chicago). For that conversation, we were joined by: • Sonny Means, Sports Director of WVON. Then, we heard from youth who recently reported on the numbers behind young people who’ve been fatally shot by the Chicago Police. We spoke with: • City Bureau Cycle 3 Reporter Yana Kunichoff, as well as • Monzell McKnight and • Patty Macias from Real Chi Youth The Barber Shop Show airs live on Fridays at Noon on Vocalo 91.1FM.
