Eight Forty-Eight

Eight Forty-Eight 01.24.12

As President Obama prepared for his State of the Union address Tuesday night, Eight Forty-Eight wondered what Americans should expect from the speech and how much compromise was necessary? Eight Forty-Eight heard from White House press secretary Jay Carney, Congressman Joe Walsh and Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky. Then, the 2012 Oscar nominations were out Tuesday--and one film that was not on the list was the Chicago-made documentary, The Interrupters. Eight Forty-Eight spoke to The Interrupters filmmaker Steve James. And, sports journalist Tab Bamford’s new book, 100 Things Blackhawks Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die, is for those fans looking to boost their Hawks I.Q. The author quizzes listeners on the most memorable moments, players and factoids. To play, call 312-923-9239, e-mail 848@wbez.org or find Eight Forty-Eight on Twitter @848.
