There's nothing like free music, and for most of this summer, a small slice of Grant Park will again be home to the 12th annual Chicago SummerDance
and in Millenium Park, it's Music Without Borders
. Tonight on Radio M
, Michael Orlove of the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs stops by with a preview. Also, this month's featured album. Thirty-three years ago this month, the California based band WAR released what has become perhaps their most enduring album: Why Can't We Be Friends
. The title track and the ever popular “Low Rider” were both nominated for a Grammy. Tony will play cuts from the album. And a survey of hip hop from around the globe. Radio should always be this fun!
